Mick Boskamp's party with Patty Brard and George Michael

George Michael's recent death has taken the world by surprise. The British pop icon was a symbol of the MTV generation in the 1980s and 1990s. His songs (Faith, Freedom, Too Funky, Fastlove, Outside...) will always be remembered.

On December 26th, Dutch newspaper "Het Parool" posted a nice article on its website written by journalist Mick Boskamp and dealing with the late pop star and Patty Brard.

In October 1987, as George Michael released his classic hit "Faith",  Boskamp (working for the Dutch edition of Playboy magazine at that time) was sent to London to interview Miss Brard who posed naked for the famous men's magazine.

He met the former Luv' singer in a big house in the posh Knightsbridge district that she shared with her friends (including the members of new wave band Sigue Sigue Sputnik). Patty & Co took Boskamp to the prestigious London night club "Browns" on Great Queen Street (owned by George Michael's cousin). This party coincided with the presence of the pop star. Boskamp was surprised that he was not the womanizer he was supposed to be. He remembered that George and a man danced intimately. What a difference with his macho public image!! It was years before he came out of the closet.
