WATCH: Boy George “I Am A DJ. I Am What I Play”
He is New Romantic, he is Acid House, and he is the master of all ceremonies. Boy George, the legend that is, tells the story of his life as a DJ, from those very first moments in the booth until today! WATCH the video below.
Boy George shot to fame in the '80s, as the lead singer of British New Wave band, Culture Club. But his history with music all began in the DJ booth, and there, it will stay. George recently released this captivating video inviting dance fans around the world to hear his tales about the start of it all.
From Djing in the very first club to life as a Pop star; starting his hugely successful record label “More Protein” to working on the illustrious Ministry of Sound compilations with Pete Tong; and tearing up the dancefloor with hit tracks like “Generations of Love” -- George takes us on a journey of love, life, and laughter.
“The Acid House movement at that point was much more successful than being in a band that wasn’t really being played on the radio, so it was time to look for new ways to be creative,” George says.
“I just wanted be around the most exciting thing happening and that was house music,” he continues.
But it is no secret that George has had a tumultuous history in the public eye, from his long battle with drugs, to stint in jail, and ongoing fight with his weight. Yet, George has come out the other side, when in 2010, the “calmer chameleon” sobered up and got back to what he loves doing best: performing.
George has since played to packed-out arenas, featured on the hit 2010 record “Somebody to Love” with Mark Ronson & The Business INTL, and keeps on travelling the world to DJ.
