"Boy George's real name is George O'Dowd. He was born in Eltham, Kent in 1961. During the early 80's he became a regular in London on the "New Romantic" club scene. His flamboyant cross-dressing style and his appearances at clubs in London were regularly featured in magazines. From 1979 he worked as a DJ alongside Jeremy Healy until he joined forces with DJ Michael Craig and drummer Jon Moss in 1982 to form the 80's super group Culture Club. Over the next four years, the group made history with their music including the huge hits "Karma Chameleon" and "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me". The group dissolved in 1986. Boy George struggled through a heroin addiction during some rough years before he came clean in 1987and re-emerged as a solo singer with "Everything I Own", which gave him his first solo #1 hit. In 1989 he formed his own record label, More Protein, and fronted a new band called Jesus Loves You. His autobiography, Take It Like A Man, recalling his extraordinary life, was published in 1995. Culture Club briefly reformed in 1999 for a tour and a new album. Today Boy George is recognized foremost as a leading dance music DJ, a solo artist and for his Broadway musical Taboo." --
