  1. James Gavin:

    Back in the Wham! days, he experimented with cocaine, but he didn’t really like it, in the early ‘90s, George got into ecstasy. But then Anselmo Feleppa, who was no doubt the love of his life and his soulmate, died in 1993 of AIDS. He was racked with pain. He turned to pot and became a full-time stoner. His album ‘Older' was made completely under the influence of pot. Then around 2003, 2004, he got into a party drug called GHB. In my opinion, more than anything, that’s the drug that did him in. But he didn’t stop there. He got into crack cocaine and was arrested for possession of that.

  2. Mildred McDivitt:

    You think it can’t get any worse, and then wham, I feel like I’ve been thrown up against a wall.

  3. Michael Putland/Getty Images:

    [Very] sad news today of Deon Estus’ death. A lavishly gifted bass guitarist, a charismatic impish character a rock of the WHAM! rhythm section, he lives large in the memory, he radiated warmth, humour life’s illuminating light, my heartfelt commiserations go out to his family.
