Goodbye Gregory.

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we say goodbye to our cherished friend, Gregory Derham.  Taken from us last week at far too young an age, the world is now missing one of its brightest stars.  
Many, many years ago a young Greg left an indelible memory of himself on Melbourne before jetting to the orient and settling in Hong Kong.  He established a persona as the go to party man of this Asian metropolis, opening the renowned House of Siren. Creating events and launching luxury products was second nature to the irrepressible Madame Madame.  Along with his trusted companion of many years, the beautiful Astro the wonder dog, Gregory amused, entertained and astounded Hong Kong through the heady exciting years as well as surviving "The Handover" and S.A.R.S. in the tougher times.

Caroline Ried (aka Pam Ann) has elected to dedicate her forthcoming European tour to our dear Gregory, citing him as one of the greatest influences and inspiration on her entertainment career.

Goodbye and farewell Gregory, gone but never forgotten.

  1. Thanks for the memories. Very sorry to hear of Greg´s passing. I had the chance to know and party with him many a time back in the early ´90s in HKG. He was a special man.
