In this special 132-page Collector’s Edition of Classic Pop Presents, we survey George Michael‘s incredible career thus far, from worldwide fame with Andrew Ridgeley in pop super-duo WHAM!, through to his incredible success as a solo artist.

Inside, we tell the story of one of pop’s leading lights and examine both the finest moments throughout WHAM!’s tenure at the top and George Michael’s stunning solo output, including in-depth album profiles that cover WHAM! albums – Fantastic and Make It Big – and George’s landmark solo collections – Faith, Older, Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1, and Patience.

Elsewhere, we do our best to track down WHAM!’s other enigmatic member, Andrew Ridgeley, we proffer our Top 40 rundown, and we take a detailed look at the striking sleeve art from across the period.

Lastly, there’s a candid interview with one-time WHAM! manager Simon Napier Bell, an examination of George Michael’s expansive store of superb unreleased material and an investigation of George’s many collaborations across his stellar career.
