FRANCE - se magnifique

Paris - What a beautiful city.

I have never heard of Johnny Halliday and found out just how much this man was respected by everyone in France. The Champs-Elysees was blocked off for all traffic on the Saturday to allow everyone to walk the full length. From what I gathered from the news he was a rock-n-roll legend who enjoyed his cars and bikes.

Well.....my son sent SWMBO and I to Paris after he heard about me being sent to Coventry.
My auld uncle had a laugh at it as well.....he JOINED and should be removed from the members list. I know - he was very naughty.

Go on DarkStar - have a guess before I tell

Another clue - my wife has one.




700 - Les motards Harley Davidson descendent les Champs-Elysées en suivant Johnny en route vers l'église de la Madeleine. Très émouvant d'être témoin de l'amour que vos hommes ont eu pour cet homme.

Has any of the members on this side of the channel heard of him?

I would think the number of Brits who know about Johnny Halliday just about match the number of Frenchmen who know about Reliant Scimitars; Both wonderful unique stars in their own fields, but never exported . Johnny was bigger over here than Elvis, even when they were contemporaries. RIP the last of the great leather-jacketed rockers!
