Johnny Hallyday, the French answer to Elvis Presley, who kept audiences enthralled for nearly 60 years with his Gallic interpretations of American rock ’n’ roll and his turbulent offstage life, has died. He was 74.

quote:

The 1957 Presley film “Loving You” changed French culture forever when it inspired the 14-year-old Jean-Philippe Smet to pick up a guitar, twist his lips into a sneer and swivel his hips. As Johnny Hallyday, he gave French audiences a bad case of rock fever, touching off riots wherever he appeared singing hits like “Tutti Frutti,” “Blue Suede Shoes” and “C’est le Mashed Potatoes.”

Although he was little known outside the French-speaking world, Mr. Hallyday sold more than 100 million records, acted in more than 30 films and appeared on the cover of the big-circulation magazine Paris Match dozens of times. His career endured so long that when he released an album in 2008 called “Ça Ne Finira Jamais” (“It Will Never End”), the title sounded like a simple statement of fact.

That album and its title song both reached No. 1 on the French charts.

Mr. Hallyday gave his fans more than recycled Elvis. His hard drinking, car crashes, wild partying and tempestuous love life made him a permanent headline in the French popular press. Readers breathlessly followed his on-again, off-again marriage to the glamorous singer and actress Sylvie Vartan, a roller-coaster relationship that led Mr. Hallyday to attempt suicide twice.
quote:

Always current with the latest developments in Anglo-American rock, he made it a point to work with top talent outside France. Early in his career he recorded in Nashville with the vocal group the Jordanaires, who backed Presley on many records. The Jimi Hendrix Experience was his opening act in 1966, and he later brought the British guitarists Jimmy Page and Peter Frampton to France for recording sessions.

re: Endless Sleep - The Obituary Thread
I was just coming to post this about Pat, they had just announced some dates for next year, but Pat's health has not been good. He loss the use of his arms but could still sing and then he fell at his house a couple of months ago.
Sad for me as my wife knew him pretty well and I had met him at some of his shows and other shows he showed up to at the Stone Pony or Wonderbar.
The Smithereens we're played constantly by me when I first head Blood and Roses

MUSCLE SHOALS — Hit record producer Rick Hall, the founder of FAME Recording Studios in Muscle Shoals and the man responsible for the Muscle Shoals sound, died today at the age of 85 following a battle with cancer Hall died at his home in Muscle Shoals.

The music pioneer had been living in a local nursing home, but returned home before Christmas, Alabama Music Hall of Fame board member Judy Hood confirmed.

"It's a very, very sad day for Muscle Shoals and music in general," Hood said. Hall rose from poverty in the Freedom Hills area of Franklin County to become a musician, then a studio owner, sound engineer, songwriter, record producer and shrewd businessman.

At FAME Recording Studios, Hall worked with soul and rhythm and blues artists like Arthur Alexander, Jimmy Hughes, Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Clarence Carter and Otis Redding.

He later began working with mainstream pop artists like The Osmonds, Paul Anka and Tom Jones, then with country artists like Mac Davis, Jerry Reed, Barbara Mandrell, Shenandoah and Ronnie Milsap.

His life was the centerpiece of the award winning 2013 music documentary “Muscle Shoals.”

Wasn't she married to Prima? She also had a part in Thunder Road, with Robert Mitchum.

I saw that and meant to post it over here, but it slipped my mind

This thread gets so little attention even I forget about it sometimes...

He wasn't a member of The Kinks until long after they're Golden Age; still attention must be paid

And you have to like a guy who forms a band called "The Rodford Files"

RIP
