Re: Favorite & least favorite City Boy tune

Choosing a favourite or least favourite City Boy tune would be like choosing your favourite child, or admitting you don't like one of your children..

Here is a snippet written by Max Thomas: "Lol and Steve had written “Turn on to Jesus” and when Polygram heard the early mixes of the album in the spring of ’78, they loved the tune, said it was very comm...

Re: The Dark Side Of The Music Industry

The George Michael film broadcast recently in the UK has George talking about his battle with Sony. I fully understand his issues and sometimes, the record companies simply won't listen or see reason. In the case of George Michael, he lost the battle (in court) but Sony ultimately lost him as an art...
