On June 1, 2008, Yours Only George celebrated its 11th birthday. It’s a bittersweet celebration for me as it occurs just at the time George Michael is starting his first tour in the U.S. for 17 years and I’m not going to see him. It’s the end of a dream for me as I now know I’ll never see him perform live again and I’ll never have the chance to meet him. It’s a dream I’ve had for 23 years … since 1985. Of all the goals and dreams I’ve ever had, I suppose this was the most illogical and unachievable one on the list. But it still saddens me that it’s over.
I’d like to thank all of the regulars who keep visiting day after day. I know I haven’t been very good about keeping up with the site lately in terms of news, links, and mail, and I do apologize.
I also have to thank Shannon, who was the driving force of Yours Only George, dating back to the 80s. Without her, I don’t know what I’d do.
And of course, I would like to thank George Michael. George, your music in the last few months has kept me sane through a difficult time. Thank you for not forgetting your U.S. fans.
