About Boy George & Culture Club
With a career spanning over 30 years, the GRAMMY® Award winners rose to international fame in the 1980s.
Culture Club was formed by frontman Boy George and bassist Mikey Craig, joined by Jon Moss and guitarist Roy Hay soon after. Realizing that they had a transvestite Irish singer (George), a black Briton (Craig), a Jewish drummer (Moss) and a native Englishman (Hay), they chose the name Culture Club, referring to the members' diverse ethnic backgrounds.
When Boy George and Culture Club exploded onto the scene in 1982, they sent shockwaves around the world and forever changed popular culture. They simultaneously changed the perception of music, fashion and art.
Culture Club became the first band since the Beatles to have three Top 10 hits in America with a debut album and the first band in music history to have a diamond album in Canada. The band went on to have seven Top 10 hits in the UK, nine Top 10 hits in the US and nine Top 20 hits in Australia - including Karma Chameleon and Do You Really Want to Hurt Me. It has sold over 100 million singles and 50 million albums worldwide.
The Culture Club band is undoubtedly a living legend with their leader Boy George and they are clearly back to stay.
