He's going to get a lot of tributes but I sadly bet a lot of them will just go: Wham, Faith, bathroom incident, dead.
I can't help but notice as well how so many of these people this year were gay/gender-bender/androgynous icons (Bowie, "Spin Me Right Round" guy, Alexis Arquette, Prince, George Michael.) Morrissey had better watch his ass the next six days.
Sadly, the first thing I think of when I think of GM is, no, not "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go" or anything from Faith (which was a hugely acclaimed album, admittedly) but Dana Carvey going "LOOK AT IT Dennis, LOOK AT MOIY BUTT!!!!" I didn't think of Arrested Development.
