Remembering George Michael

George Michael

In 1996, George Michael bared his soul to us in an exclusive interview, beginning a close friendship with The Big Issue. As a classic album is reissued and film hits the cinema, we look back on that relationship and offer a glimpse into some rarely seen images of the much-missed music icon.
