February 1, 2011. WECB met George Michael who spoke about the recording of his cult album, Faith.
“I swear to you that when I’m on stage, I enjoy every moment, but I can’t help but dread what would happen if I let all that energy die down. I know very well that it only takes a few wrong notes for the atmosphere to change radically. » –George Michael
“I never learned to play an instrument when I was a child. My music would probably have been very different if that had been the case. I have enough musical knowledge to play a piece and construct it to sound good, but I wouldn’t be able to play music live. I know where the C is so I guess I could get by, but I couldn’t tell you what the names of the strings on a guitar are. »
“‘I Want Your Sex’ was a scandal at the time, but the fact is I was trying to be funny when I sang.”Love is natural, love is good. Not everyone does it, yet should‘ » –George Michael
“I was beyond overwhelmed. I found myself constantly wearing sunglasses. I couldn’t look people in the eye, it was quite weird. » –George Michael
“I am extremely proud of Faith but I never thought for a moment that it would dethrone Wham! » –George Michael
“’Father Figure’ started with a snare drum. It looked a bit like Prince. I had to listen to it once without it and I realized that it’s not the same recording at all! It had become a gospel song. » –George Michael
“My career has been strewn with accidents. I sometimes found myself stumbling upon a good sound. My salvation lies in the fact that I know how to recognize if it can find a particular resonance with my audience. »
