Hootie Johnson, the South Carolina banker and Augusta National Golf Club chairman who stood his ground amid pressure for the club to invite female members, died Friday morning.Augusta National announced his death — neither his cause of death nor where he died was given — and celebrated the sweeping changes to the Masters during his eight years as chairman.In a blistering, three-page statement, Mr. Johnson said women might one day be invited, but it would be on the club’s timetable and “not at the point of a bayonet.”Mr. Johnson’s public image clashed with his legacy in business, where he was among the most progressive bankers in the South.

- Boy George on Culture Club’s weird magic

Boy George on Culture Club’s weird magicHaving weathered addiction, drama and animosity, the original lineup of Culture Club is back in America on a second round of shows following its recent reunion.Led by Boy George, who this fall appears on the latest season of “The New Celebrity Apprentice,” the group — which also features bassist Mikey Craig, drummer Jon Moss and guitarist Roy Hay — is revisiting its early 1980s hits like “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me,” “I’ll Tumble 4 Ya” and “Karma Chameleon,” as well as a handful of new tracks.George spoke to us from a stop in Texas.The band has been back together for two years running.What changed?The last tour we did, I came off of it and said, “That was quite a pleasant experience!” It was actually fun.Do you think it will lead to any new music?There was some talk about releasing a new album, “Tribes.”The old way of doing it is over — going to radio and putting it in shops is not working.What about for the fans that stuck with the band?When people come up to you and tell you how you changed their lives, does it feel like a burden or blessing?Are you frustrated you wasted so many years in the grips of addiction?With what I’ve been through in the last 20 years, people don’t know me.Most people don’t know me.Aidin Vaziri is The San Francisco Chronicle’s pop music critic.
