Wham! George & Me
For the first time, Andrew Ridgeley - one half of one of the most famous bands in the world - tells the inside story of Wham! and his life-long friendship with George Michael.
It is 1975, Watford, and two teenagers, George and Andrew, meet for the first time. Bonding over their love for singing, song writing and pop music, together they set out to follow an impossible dr...more
For me the real interest was the period where George and Andrew had become friends and were dreaming and gently stepping into music. This period is told with detail to see and understand how the two got along, planned and ...more
After reading several biographies of George and reading "I'm Coming To Take You To Lunch" by Wham's manager Simon Napier-Bell it was blast to read the story from a different perspective, especially from the other main man who was there...

If you're big fan of Wham! and George Michael then this is a must read. Even if you're not, read it anyway. Enjoy it. I did!

It is part "we were best friends, always and forever"and part, "I contributed more than people realize".
A lover letter to a deep friendship from young boys to popstars but I didn't learn anything new about either of them. If you want salacious you wont find it here!
Part of me wonders why bother and part of me wonders if George was still here would he refute ho ...more
This was a very poignant story, you could feel the love and admiration that Andrew felt for George, this book was an intimate glimpse into their friendship and time in the spotlight.
I think a few things were missing. It was so reverential, that there really weren't any negative stories about George, or any ref ...more
When I was in college, I saw George Michael in concert and was amazed at what a great performer he was, and by then, I had seen a lot of good ones. His missing ...more
