Culture Club: Hey There, Georgie Boy...

Julie Panebianco, Boston Rock, 30 March 1983

THE PIANO lounge of Boston's Marriott Longwharf Hotel is imposing — sharp white walls and ledges surround ceiling-high glass windows, dramatizing the expanse of the room. There are large cushioned couches and marble coffee tables. Tapping against one is the blue snakeskin shoe of Roy Hay, part-time tourist, full time guitarist and songwriter for Culture Club. "I'm going to get a map of the world," he vows, "so I can see where I've been going — and where I'm going to go."
