The beginning of the end

Not just because the month of May was over, but rather because 30 years ago, May 31, 1986, Wham! (with the exclamation mark) released their last album, “The final” (and it indeed was). And world set ready to have, instead of Wham!, George Michael and an ambitious rally car driver…

Countdown to celebrity

Europe – The final countdown

“The final countdown” is much more that a fantastic hit of a metal band. Northern Europe has always been rich of heavy metal bands, compared to other zones. That’s why, in 1986, if an unknown metal group releases a new album, nobody cares about it.

The month of meteors

That was definitely May 1986. Do you remember Pete Wylie? Actually he was not really a meteor, he was very active in creating, joining and leaving groups, maybe the most famous were The Mighty Wah.
