Following yesterday’s surprise death of George Michael, Paul McCartney paid tribute to the star. He recognized Michael’s roots in African American music and shared some personal recollections.“George Michael’s sweet soul music will live on even after his sudden death,” he wrote on his website. “Having worked with him on a number of occasions his great talent always shone through and his self deprecating sense of humour made the experience even more pleasurable.”In 2005, Michael made a surprise appearance during Paul McCartney’s set at Live 8, where they sang “Drive My Car” (embedded above). A year later, McCartney and Michael duetted on “Heal the Pain,” a re-recording of a track from Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1. Their new version, which appeared on Michael’s career retrospective, Twenty Five, can be found below.
