Sir: I know very little of the technicalities of the court case involving George Michael and Sony. What appears to have happened is that the public will be deprived of George Michael's music for a further nine years.

I am not a fan of George Michael, but while I understand that he should not be able to just walk away from his contract with Sony, he is obviously a talented man and it would be a great shame to have that talent curtailed in such a way.

We have lost many talented musicians. Buddy Holly, John Lennon, Freddie Mercury and Kurt Cobain have all been lost in circumstances that are irreversible. George Michael's situation is reversible, and despite the difficulties involved, both parties should rethink in order that both George and his fans can enjoy his music once more.

Yours faithfully,
