    George Michael Dead!

    The star, who launched his career with Wham! in the 1980s and later continued his success as a solo performer, is said to have "passed away peacefully at home".

    Thames Valley Police said South Central Ambulance Service attended a property in Goring in Oxfordshire at 13:42 GMT.

    Police say there were no suspicious circumstances.

    I wasn't a fan of his generally, but "Older" was amongst my all time favourite albums.

    Unbelievable! Can't remember a year so many people in the music biz went. Didn't like all his stuff but a talented songwriter + fine singer. Some good duets too with Elton John, Aretha + Mary J Blige.

    Didn't like him but he did have talent and I could happily listen to his music. Another big name gone and the year is not out yet. For 53 he looked old, first thoughts, drink, drugs or HIV. RIP GM.

    Plenty of music names missing from that list such as Glen Frey (Eagles), Maurice White (Earth, Wind + Fire), Leon Russell, Merle Haggard, Sharon Jones (Dap-Kings), Kay Starr, George Martin just from memory.

    I woke up at 7am,turned the bedside radio on,and heard the last few words,something like "He was 53 and will be a sad loss to the music world"I didnt have a clue who they were talking about,so loaded up the laptop.I was genuinely shocked and saddened.Ok I admit I was'nt a huge fan of his,but I do like some of his older ballads.Loved his voice.Too young,and on Xmas Days of all days.

    Hopefully it will be the Greek and not her. HM ain't bad, wouldn't want her job, but him, he's just a waste of space and an oxygen thief

    Borrowed time now so just got to make it good especially when seeing the likes of George popping his clogs so early.
