    He was into juice fasting. (‘No food. It cleans your whole system out.’)
    He was a one-hit wonder.
    His one hit basically rode on George Michael’s post-‘Faith’ coattails. (In addition to providing backing vocals, Michael also produced and co-wrote the song.)
    He learned bass guitar from Motown legend James Jamerson.
    ’Heaven Help Me’ was a top five hit on Billboard’s pop, R&B, and adult contemporary charts.
    In addition to George Michael and Wham!, he played bass on records by Tina Turner, Elton John, Frank Zappa, George Clinton, Annie Lennox, and Edgar Winter.
