George Michael is an enigma. While he is one of the most open and vocal pop superstars on the planet, he also fiercely protective of his privacy. From the formation of Wham! In 1981 he immediately found fame and fortune beyond his wildest dreams.

He may have been known as 'the quiet one' during the first decade of his musical career, but his unassuming personality and gentle character mixed with the driest and wryest sense of humour in the band with whom he made his name, probably allowed George Harrison to remain the most loved and respected member of the Beatles - despite the strong competition. And while he will never be thought of as the most musically creative Beatle member, anyone who had the ability to write songs as strong and timeless as 'Something', 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps', 'Here Comes The Sun' and 'My Sweet Lord' has pure genius running through his veins. It's now ten years since George tragically passed away having been stolen from the world at a young age to the ravishes of the cancer he had fought since 1997, but he left behind a legacy that will live forever. This two disc set celebrates the life and music of George Harrison by way of a spoken word biography charting his life and career, and a disc of interviews with the great man himself recorded at different times across his eventful life and during which he speaks with honesty, humour and is as down to earth as ever. Covering all manner of topics from his music, his spiritual beliefs, his interests, the Beatles and all manner of other topics, George tells it like it was! Delightfully packaged with the collector in mind, this set will remain amongst the finest GH tributes to emerge at his time of remembrance.

...George Foreman making his millions in outside cooking apparel makes me chuckle. It?s as if one of those crazy schemes all heavyweight boxers are offered by seedy hangers on back in the day to relieve them off their cash has actually come off. The big man has made millions from this stuff and more famous for foldable grills than his boxing career to most. The 1968 Olympic Champion and twice World...

...I don't shop at Asda very often, purely because there isn't one very close to where I live. Whenever I do go in there though, I will always have a look at their clothing section and I normally come away with a few bits and pieces! I also often browse their website and keep an eye on the sale items as they often have lovely clothes reduced to under a fiver.
