Yes Douglas booth is so beautiful I could cry.

I've been listening to Will You all day. Dd and I have been singing along, but she got very annoyed at the words and insisted we sing "will you just politely say hello" (she's 2, not worth the tantrum)

Oh, I thought Kirk Brandon was dead. The BG actor was, indeed, much better looking than BG ever was.

Was the John Moss/BG relationship all kept secret at the time or was I just too young to notice? I'm sure I only discovered John Moss was gay about 10 years ago.

Lol oh dear BG doesn't like it! (Mind you the link is to the Sun..)

i agree with him - a crazy mad story told very blandly

fartmeistergeneral · 18/05/2010 09:13

I was a big CC fan back in the day and did enjoy the programme but felt it lacked something, not sure what. Perhaps tried to cram too much in - there was a sudden leap from George meeting Mikey to them suddenly being No1 and on TOTP.

I was aware of the Jon Moss/George relationship, but only a few years after CC split I think. Jon Moss was in a relationship, maybe married, and wasn't keen AT ALL in George blabbing on about it. I'm sure Kirk Brandon was the same! I didn't know about that at all, I know now he sued George but lost, but he must have been sitting in his house cringing on Sunday night!!

It was such a good programme though wasn't it?
I tried to watch the one last night about the royal wedding but gave up after half an hour.

Just checked and this is out on DVD on the 5th July... don't think it's going to be repeated....

ijustwanttobeme · 18/05/2010 20:43

I loved this too- was a massive CC fan back in the day.Also watched the boys and girls/new romantic/futurist thing on after -plus the soft cell prog after that!!

Such an 80's girl me

Had yesterday off and just you tubed loads of the vids etc and had a reminisce..

Reread the words to 'victims' and it made me all teary at the thought of George and all the torment he must have been going through first with KB and then of course JM.

Plus did you all see TOTP last week with all the 80's stuff? That was fab too.

sharbie · 18/05/2010 21:16

Of course and after Ashes to Ashes every week (red button).Singalong at the top of my voice!

kittya · 19/05/2010 22:05

I saw Boy George at a small venue afew weeks ago. I couldnt beleive it when I saw Jon Moss there too. I was an 80's child and a huge fan. When he sang Victims in that small venue with Jon watching him I went all shivery. I must admit I never saw them talking to each other at this gig so, I wonder how they are now? Oh, it brought back so many memmories that drama. Is Marilyn still alive? The programme afterwards about music was ace but it was on far too late.

sharbie · 20/05/2010 08:23

Oooh not sure about Marilyn - hope so.He always made me smile on tv etc and thought he was good fun in the programme.How strange that BG and JM were together at the gig.

ohmeohmy · 20/05/2010 08:38

I once saw Marilyn in SpudULike Camden High Street around 1985. Can't remember what topping he had.

sharbie · 20/05/2010 08:53

Spud u Like

kittya · 20/05/2010 14:54

they werent together. George was singing Jon was watching. I didnt see them speak to each other. I always thought Jon was handsome, hes titchy though!

sharbie · 20/05/2010 16:00

Sorry I meant in the same room type of together.I thought their split was very acrimonious at the time.Glad they got over it.
I always find famous people are tiny in RL.

fartmeistergeneral · 20/05/2010 16:21

I heard Mathew Horne speaking to Jonathon Ross and he said there was an incident where Jon attacks George with a hammer and that they covered that in the programme, don't remember that bit? When was that?

Also, yes Marilyn is alive and well and living with his mother in London. He's broke apparently. I read on Wiki (!) that he was asking people through his myspace page to send him money for a new computer, but who knows if that's true.

SheenaE · 20/05/2010 16:43

I loved the movie.
Boy George and Jon Moss have said in several interviews that they are friends now and talk, text and email each other. I'm sure George invited him to his solo gig.
