George is the story of two extraordinary lives - the private man and the public legend. Georgios Panayiotou was just eighteen when he decided to adopt the stage name of George Michael. Sometimes his two worlds would collide with shattering consequences. Bestselling biographer Sean Smith has gone back to the neighbourhoods of North London to trace the astonishing journey of a sensitive but determined boy who grew up to be one of the biggest British pop stars of all time. Along the way, he talks to those close to George, revealing the real man - funny, articulate, intelligent and generous spirited - who hid behind the powerful image he created. He reveals the complex relationship with his high-achieving Greek-Cypriot father; the unconditional love of his mother; his teenage relationships with girls; and his first tragic love affair with another man. George's career began falteringly with a schoolboy band, exploded with Wham! before he became a solo phenomenon. But at the height of his fame, the world seemed to turn against him. Smith describes his despair at losing the two people who mattered most, how he sought consolation in drugs, his notorious 'coming out' and how he ended up in jail. His health failed him and he died heartbreakingly alone on Christmas Day, 2016. Affectionate yet honest and moving, George is both a celebration of George Michael's music and a lasting tribute to a decent and much-loved man.

George Michael was pop's greatest survivor. He has been UK radio's most-played artist over the last 35 years and the superstar behind the legendary 1980s Faith album and tour. He was a musician with international credibility--and a disaster magnet whose serial scandals never seemed to dent his professional reputation. This searching biography throws a light on Georgios Panayiotou, the Anglo-Greek London boy who had to hide his homosexuality when he was half of the pop phenomenon Wham! before becoming a global superstar and publicly claiming his identity. In Careless Whispers, author Robert Steele details every step of the conflicted superstar's career and digs deep into his closely guarded private life. Drawing on firsthand accounts from Michael's ex-manager and the journalist who was part of his social circle in the 1980s, Careless Whispers examines in detail the life, work, and tragic final act of a much-loved icon.

When the announcement of George Michael's death circulated on Christmas Day in 2016 it was greeted with an air of disbelief: the singer/songwriter and producer was only 53. But it was true, and the world mourned the passing of a hugely talented artist with a beautiful, soulful voice. Michael was a pop star with a social conscience who did a lot of work for charity and to further the cause of sexual rights and education. Michael shot to fame as part of the ultimate 80s pop duo Wham! and remained in the spotlight - for better and worse - until the end of 2016. Wham! split but Michael enjoyed a hugely successful solo career, working with some of the biggest names in music. He was sometimes controversial, and he fell foul of the law on a number of occasions, but he will be remembered for ever for his music and charitable work. His most famous songs were with Wham! and as a solo artist, and he collaborated with such musical royalty as Elton John, Aretha Franklin, Band Aid, Queen, Mary J. Blige, Whitney Houston, Paul McCartney and Beyonc� - and more.

Pop manager extraordinaire Simon Napier-Bell had had enough. He'd had enough of pop groups. He'd had enough of the constant grief at home with his two ex-boyfriends bickering and bleeding him dry; and most of all he'd had enough of the music biz. But then he fell in love with a new passion - the Far East; and a dynamic new duo - George and Andrew - jointly called Wham! Soon, in an audacious attempt to have the best of both worlds, he found himself offering to arrange for Wham! to be the first ever Western pop group to play in communist China - a masterstroke of PR which, in one swift stroke, would make them one of the biggest groups in the world. What follows is an exciting, unpredictable and hilarious romp around the more curious corners of the world as Napier-Bell dives into the unknown, attempting to achieve the unachievable. We soon find ourselves in the company of a wonderful cast of petulant pop stars, shady international 'businessmen', and a hilarious confusion of spies, students and institutionalised officials and ministers as he edges ever closer to inadvertently becoming one of the first Westerners to break down the walls of communist China.
