The brand new issue of Classic Pop Presents is here, bringing you a deep dive into all things George Michael & Wham!. Choose from two stunning covers of this special edition – or get both!

In this 132-page remastered edition of Classic Pop Presents, we revisit George Michael’s incredible career, from early worldwide fame with Andrew Ridgeley in pop hyper-duo Wham! through to his breakout success as a solo artist, and on to his final years.

Inside, we tell the story of Wham!’s effervescent beginnings right through to their triumphant farewell show at Wembley Stadium, with in-depth features covering their classic albums, Fantastic and Make It Big, plus a brand new exclusive interview with Wham! manager Simon Napier-Bell. From there, we tell the story of George’s transitional hit Careless Whisper, then trace his solo career through the decades with detailed features on his landmark solo albums Faith, Older, Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 and Patience – plus, we take a look at Ridgeley’s own solo album Son Of Albert.

From the Classic Pop archives, we chat to Ridgeley and Pepsi & Shirlie about those glorious formative years, and we enter George’s inner circle via co-writer and producer James Jackman who discusses a life working closely with the star.  Elsewhere, there’s our definitive Top 40 rundown, a detailed look at the striking sleeve art from across George’s 30-year career and we delve into the unreleased material that’s still behind lock and key.

All this and much more in this remastered edition of Classic Pop Presents George Michael. Choose between two fantastic covers, or order our limited edition fan pack which includes both covers and a set of art cards for you to frame and enjoy!
