ITV1's South Bank Show will honour George Michael on Oct 31 2006 with a "Special" that marks the star's 25 years as a "global pop icon". In an interview filmed over two months, with backstage production footage, he talks about everything from marijuana and Rupert Murdoch to sex and ... Rupert Murdoch. I wonder what he'll say about the old, homophobic, bullying bastard.
Meantime, a few excerpts from the interview:
"If I'd drunk as much I'd smoked - my god I'd look like Keith Richards"
"Led Zeppelin are my favourite rock group of all time - they sound like they know how to have sex"
"As the years go by, Mr Blair is making Shoot The Dog a word perfect protest song"
