Well, I contributed £7.18 to his curvy figure fund only 3 weeks ago...

Wonder why I thought he was dead already?
Maybe because he lived as long as he did.

I recall an interview
in which he was so very proud
of his children and their families.
A good soul in there.

Indeed he was keberoxu, as most parents are. He had nine children to five ex wives and adopted another two during his last relationship.

A story recounted on Radio 4 this morning: He was in the Air France lounge waiting for a flight and steward brought him an ash tray, saying that no-one was allowed to smoke there - except Johnny Hallyday.

My! He had only four children, David born in 1966 to Sylvie Vartan and Laura in 1985 to Nathalie Baye, then two Vietnamese girls he adopted with his last wife Laetitia. He had 3 grand-children, David's children.
Whether we loved him or not, a whole part of our lives have gone away with him. I can tell you that my teenage years have gone!

Probably first heard of him when everyone was also raving about Francoise Hardy: and maybe when I went to visit my French penfriend's family in 1962 and 1964, when he would have been the no 1 French pop artist.
So I mistakenly thought then he was a lot older than he was: not actually much older than me! My days are numbered?

hopefully entertaining old men on cold winters nights

mine was sat on the sofa watching the news report on Johnny Hallyday's funeral procession through Paris;
impressed by the size of the crowd, sad for all the crying elderly women,
saying why don't we celebrate our music heroes like that...

Though she is Welsh, and they probably will when Tom Jones expires...

A very impressive turn out by the French nation for their favorite son. When you get a president and several ex presidents at your service, one could say you made it.

I would have thought he would have been buried in Paris, but no, with a sense of humour to the end, his wish was to be buried in St Barts in the French West Indies as he said his bank accounts were there.

"? his wish was to be buried in St Barts in the French West Indies as he said his bank accounts were there"

Why is it so charming to hide your money rather than contribute your fair share of tax to your country?

Went to a Christmas party with my French friends and nobody wanted the singer to sing anything but what Johnny Hallyday had sung!
