      The author of these lines was lucky enough to attend the concerts of George Michael in 2007, when he returned after 15 years of silence with a triumphant tour “25 live”, about which he wrote “farewell”. During his speech, he could laugh at himself (e.g., he came out with a suit of the police – thereby alluding to his problems with the law), was a block of serious songs about world issues. There were even life-size dolls depicting the then Prime Minister of England Tony Blair and U.S. President George W. Bush.
