55. George Michael
Usually when collaborations break up one party becomes more successful than the other. There may be no case of wider musical disparity than when George Michael and Andrew Ridgely dissolved Wham.

While Ridgely was slowly becoming a punch line, George Michael dominated the Pop charts with his powerful voice that had a subtle Soul sound.   Although his solo career was off to a rocket like start, his second album underperformed. Legal battles with his record label prevented Michael from having a longer discography, as he was relatively inactive for the first half of the 90’s. Still, his career in the 1980’s was a very successful one, and he has left behind undated Pop/Dance songs that will likely hold up decades from now.

The question we ask is whether Michael’s career was “Rock” enough, however we have noticed that has not stopped Cleveland before.

What is the wait?! George Michael was beyond talented. The contribution he made to the music world with the songs that touched so many in the 80s the 90s and 2000 has no question. Even though he was part of a pop group it was his writing he is arranging his producing in that group which made those songs chart at the top. His song writing alone spoke volumes. I heard Elton John compare him to a songwriter like McCartney and Lennon and that says more than is needed to get him into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Although his popularity faded in the US you just had to have followed his career to see how massive he was throughout the rest of the world until he died. Even with his last sold out concert in 2012 through 14 of symphonica it is beyond question that this man was pure talent. Very rarely do you run into an artist that can write compose arrange and produce all his music.
