Additional information about this George Michael vinyl art.

George Michael – The Artist

George Michael (1963 – 2016) was an English singer, songwriter, record producer, and philanthropist who rose to fame as a member of the music duo Wham! and later embarked on a solo career. Michael sold over 80 million records worldwide making him one of the best-selling music artists of all time. He achieved seven number one songs on the UK Singles Chart. He was widely known for his success in the 1980s and 1990s, including Wham! singles such as “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” and “Last Christmas” and solo singles such as “Careless Whisper” and “Faith”. Michael, who came out as gay in 1998, was an active LGBT rights campaigner and HIV/AIDS charity fundraiser. Michael’s personal life and legal troubles made headlines during the late 1990s and 2000s, as he was arrested for public lewdness in 1998 and was arrested for multiple drug-related offences after that time. The 2005 documentary A Different Story covered his career and personal life. Michael’s first tour since 1991, the 25 Live tour, spanned three tours over the course of three years; 2006, 2007, and 2008. Four years later, he performed his final concert at London’s Earls Court in 2012. In the early hours of 25 December 2016, Michael was found dead at his home in Goring-on-Thames, Oxfordshire aged 53. A coroner’s report attributed his death to natural causes.

Freedom! 90 – The Song

“Freedom! ’90” (also known simply as “Freedom!”) is a song written, produced, and performed by George Michael, and released on Epic Records in 1990. The “’90” added to the end of the title is to prevent confusion with a hit by Michael’s former band Wham!, also titled “Freedom”. The song’s backing beat is a sample from James Brown’s song “Funky Drummer”. It was the third single taken from Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1. “Freedom! ’90” was one of a few uptempo songs on this album. It was a major hit in both the UK, US and Europe. The song refers to Michael’s past success with Wham!, yet also shows a new side of himself as a new man, who is more cynical about the music business than he had been before. Michael refused to appear in the video and allowed a group of supermodels to appear instead.

    I bought this for a friends’ 50th birthday, she loves George and absolutely LOVED the present, so much so she’ll probably be giving Kenny’s vinyl art to her muso mates for theirs. Kenny is a joy to deal with and his work is fantastic. Long may it continue!
