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.

Five years after tragedy took 72 lives, we take a look at what’s changed – and what still needs to change – speaking to survivors, members of the community and reporting on the ongoing inquiry.
