No worries, milkman, I was in too much of a rush to check those sites myself. But I still want it, can't believe it is 25 years! For me, LWP is probably the album of the decade for me, tough competition, but he tops my list.
Got to wonder if the documentary will still be going ahead. I hope so. Benchmark of an album.

Hopefully I will get this later today. I usually don't buy magazines anymore...and this one is $16+, but it's bittersweet to know he has a tribute issue dedicated solely about him.

I was going to buy the Prince one until I saw the price. :shock:

Yea, ouch at the price. I don't have to pay a penny, but I will be babysitting in return for it. Just gotta make sure I don't read it with the kids around, cause I am sure to cry. I teared up flipping through it at the shop today.
It literally made it all the more real knowing I was my niece's age when I first became a fan of Wham's, and she called it happy, fun music. I hope to get more of the music, there are a couple of albums I have to replace, and more I would like to own. I looked today, but no CDs at the local Walmart, which was sad.

I had to be reminded of the song when I read an article about him/George yesterday. He had great things to say about George. I wish I could link to the article here, bloody tablet.

Hopefully this will still be available after an hour of walking through a crapload of snow.

Is it a good write up about George? I hope.
I've been looking for that issue, but haven't seen it in the three stores I checked, Walmart, Safeway and IGA.
I love the People edition about George. That is very well done.

Five copies earlier this afternoon, when I walked to get it, it was the last copy. Truly bittersweet I own the album. I had the album a few years ago, but I loaned it out, and it never ended up returned.
But oh the memories this will bring back. Some good, some bad, but his music was right there for me. And it still is.

I don't think you will find the EW issue because it is dated 1/13/17. It's a 6-page write-up but the 7-page write-up in People is just as good or better! I have that one, too!

I've been looking for it since it came out, not sure if it was available, or already sold out.
I'm pretty pleased with the People editions that I have. Very well done, and I'm thankful for that, some media have been awful.
Listening to Twenty Five as I type. Damn :(. It's a big loss. I'm so not trying to cry right now, it's tough.

Flowers/tributes were removed from Highgate today. I understand why, but it gives me a pang :(

I'm sorry. I still think your tribute is one of the best I have heard/seen in the last few weeks. Thanks to people like you, I can safely say his music will live on. Believe me, I truly mean that.
