Boy George Still Sounds Great

That’s wonderful news, given how much sturm und drang the 53-year-old has put himself through over the years. The Independent reports from London: ‘At Culture Club’s first live performance in 12 years, Heaven was packed with the band’s most hardcore of fans – original vinyls were held, memorabilia phone cases were carried, supportive T-shirts worn and a banner waved with the words “Duran Duran who?” The setting, the legendary gay club hidden under the arches of Charing Cross station, also had significance; Heaven was the first London venue the band played at back in 1982. The band opened with “Church of the Poison Mind”, and from the outset it was clear that Boy George’s voice sounds as great as it ever did – a tender tenor sound that still resonates.’ Culture Club will be touring the U.S. next month: details here.
