BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1990
Andrew John Ridgeley (born 26 January 1963) is an English former pop singer-songwriter, guitarist and environmentalist. He was a member (with George Michael) of the 1980s pop music duo Wham!.
Wham! went on to enjoy worldwide success between 1982 and 1986. They made their U.S. debut appearance on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand but broke up in late 1986, whereupon Ridgeley moved to Monaco, and tried his hand at Formula Three motor racing. Meeting with little success, Ridgeley moved to Los Angeles in pursuit of a career in acting. He returned to Britain permanently in 1990. Regardless, CBS Records, having taken up the option on Wham!’s contract that specified solo albums from Michael and Ridgeley, released a guitar-and-drum-driven solo effort from Ridgeley, Son of Albert, in 1990. His brother Paul—a frequent percussionist for Bananarama—played drums on the album.
“Shake” was the first single released fron Son Of Albert the track peaked at #77 on the US Billboard Hot 100 on December 5. 1990.
