Very said about George Kay, passing away due to a drugs overdose, Saturday. I spoke to him quite a bit up until a few months back. He was very sharp and astute, and humorous.
I was helping him as a friend at the time – planning a book with him and thinking up ways for him to reinvent himself.
It’s terrible news.
I didn’t really know that he’d wrestled with drugs and mental health. I guess he didn’t show it. He always seemed vibrant and full of fight to put his past behind him. And with me, it’s well, let’s look forwards, not back. I was saying, “You can do this George… you really can.” And he seemed charged up by the positivity.
We actually had the bones of a book mapped out – one covering his life, which was colorful, to say the least. It went into how he grew up in Shropshire (or Wales, can’t recall). He was adopted to a white family. And George jokingly would say, “I was the only black in the village.”
But from what I can tell, there were never any problems with that. If anything he was a popular kid.
When he and I spoke, we always had a bit of fun, joking around. But there was real focus too. I wanted to get it so when you searched for “George Kay” online his name would come up independently, instead of alongside his ex wife Kerry Katona. No disrespect to her – it’s just the press always called George “Kerry’s ex.” I said we could sort this out with a book and decent web presence.
Oh and also, as I understood it, George and Kerry were not on bad terms at all. I’m sure the breakup was bad. But once they’d come to terms with it, they were pretty cool with each other – unlike how the media painted it. They got on well. Anyway, that’s what George said to me. The press hyped it all up. I’m sure that was true.
Psychic and paranormal
Also, George had a lot of unusual and profound psychic experiences. A lot of weird stuff happened around him. Including with Kerry Katona – I think they were once in some hospital, visiting a relative, and the lights in the corridor went crazy, flashing and then totally out. This kind of thing was common, and Kerry I believe would vouch for that.
George was also big into manifesting stuff. And he worked a lot on all of that. Okay, the media might say, oh yeah, mental health issues. But I have to strongly say that George NEVER EVER seemed to have lost it in any way.
Sure, when he first tried to deal with his psychic experiences, it was hard. It was like he was different… and remember, he’d been a rugby player originally and was thrown into the public eye – so as a celebrity it was easy to tar him as a bit crazy. He absolutely wasn’t in my view.
Bottom line is, George Kay had a lot to offer – he had a lot of wisdom too. In my dealings with him, I always saw him as a great guy.
I half think I could have done more – I didn’t badger him about getting more done on his book and so on. Thought he’d get back when he was ready. It’s not like I knew him super well. But now I wish I’d badgered him – because I might then have heard about his drug problems. At very least I’d have gone on at him to stop and to focus on positive mental attitude, and to look at helping others and spreading his positive message.
RIP George. I hope you’re out there experiencing the ineffable vastness of creation.
