In some ways, it’s good to see Boy George back in catty form. Unless you are former members of Culture Club, that is. The singer and DJ has been scathing of his criticism of the band and its new singer, Sam Butcher, who are currently organising a 20th anniversary tour in the UK as Cultue Club Reborn. But the limit was reached when Boy George accepted an award from Q Music for the song “Karma Chameleon”. Interviewed by the BBC, bassist Mikey Craig was hurt: “We should have been there,” said Craig. “George wasn’t the sole writer of the song. We wrote collectively. At the end of the day, Culture Club was very much ours as well as George’s. He was the visual impact that everyone got, but there was a hell of a lot behind it,” he said.
Boy George, meanwhile, is continuing his career as DJ after a spell in New York and a noted run-in with the police for possession of cocaine. Click here to download Boy George’s recent single “Look Pon U”.
