    I was thinking about that the other day, actually.
    He was just eye-candy though, right? Did he actually sing?

    Ask and ye shall receive:

    After retiring from active music-making, Ridgeley still remained active in music-writing under various pseudonyms.[citation needed]

    Ridgeley began surfing in the early 1990s. While surfing with his brother off the coast of England, both men contracted a waterborne illness from the raw sewage being discharged from a nearby pipe. After recovering from his illness, Ridgeley gave an interview to The Times. He went on to become a prominent environmentalist in the cause of water quality at English surfing beaches and riverways, working with the UK charity, Surfers Against Sewage (SAS).

    Ridgeley is a partner in an English business that makes surfing equipment. He frequently lends his name and donates money to help pass laws against the discharge of raw sewage in UK offshore waters. Ridgeley's and SAS's efforts enjoyed success in recent years, having influence upon numerous safe sewage laws that have virtually eliminated E. coli illness and deaths in the UK.

    He now lives in Cornwall, United Kingdom, in a restored 15th-century farm property with his partner Keren Woodward [1] of the pop group Bananarama.

    The majority of his spare time is taken up by golf and he is a keen member of a local club where he plays off a handicap of 12. Other hobbies include Real Ale and he is a keen member of CAMRA.

    Ridgeley is a supporter of Queens Park Rangers Football club and can be seen wearing their kit in the music video for the Wham! single "Freedom".

    Well, poop.

    I was hoping it would take at least 15 pages to solve this mystery. WTG Debiraymond.

    His song "Faith" was fantastic. Especially the pipe organ prelude, short as it was...
