Did you know that George Michael was in the 1984 video of British singer and actress Hazel O’Connor? Video quality is poor, but read the stories that Hazel shared about George.
Hazel recounted two stories with George in a 2017 interview. She told of the funny incident of the two of them hitchhiking after watching David Bowie in concert
“Once we went to see David Bowie together at Wembley… we got there on the tube, but then we left because it was so packed. We thought ‘how are we going to get out of here?’ We started to walk and then we decided to hitchhike. We got the first lift and the driver freaked out when he recognised us.
“When we had to get out we started doing stupid stuff like Wham! dances along the road to try to get another lift. I think it was Pete Murphy, from Bauhaus, who picked us up in the end.
Hazel also talked of the time when a bucket of water was thrown over George.
“He came to a little party we were having and bought in his new solo single demo on a cassette player. We got a sneak preview and all danced and sang to this thing. Then he went off that night and everybody left the party.
“At five in the morning I’m woken up by Mr George Michael again at me window going ‘Hazel, Hazel, open the door’. When I did the poor man was soaking wet and it wasn’t raining,” she laughs.
“He’d forgot his demo and came back to get it. He’d rang my doorbell but I’d switched it off, I didn’t want people coming to a party that was over. He’d rang my neighbour’s bell several times and she was not happy. She’d gone to her bathroom and poured a bucket of water over his head.”
