HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BOY GEORGE!
Growing up in a large working class Irish family in England was not an easy feat for the “pink sheep” of his family. Even as a youth, admittedly, he loved to be stared at, and quickly created his own stand out image. His outlandish character, outrageous clothes and dramatic makeup was not exactly mainstream behavior. Out of school and without a job, George took any work he could find, one of which was a stint as a milliner!
Boy George’s band Culture Club released their debut album, Kissing To Be Clever, in 1982. The band found quick success, but George’s drug habit interfered with their success. Now, when asked what he does, he simply says, “I’m a DJ, silly!”
Whether you endorse his music, behavior or lifestyle, you have to admit he does wear some great hats! BOY GEORGE, born on June 14, 1961, we wish you a JOYous BIRTHDAY!
