JOHNNY HALLYDAY : NOBODY LOVED AMERICA MORE

The original French rock n roller Johnny Hallyday just died and it’s a huge deal in France but should be noteworthy here too. As successful as he was, Johnny was mostly unknown outside of France, but he was always madly in love with American culture. As a teen he was inspired by Elvis Presley and went on to record many American hits by Elvis, Carl Perkins, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Eddie Cochran, Chubby Checker, Fats Domino etc. – translated into French – and he made a fortune. He loved all things American – Harley Davidson motorcycles, fast cars, leather pants, hamburgers etc. He died in Los Angeles.

JOHNNY HALLYDAY AND MICKEY ROURKE : TWO OF A KIND?

French singer Johnny Hallyday and Mickey Rourke hung out in front of Mr Chow having a smoke before they went inside for dinner. They almost costarred with Christopher Walken in an untitled gangster movie in 2010. Johnny always wanted to be an actor and admired Mickey’s career. The film was about a New Jersey crime family seeking to expand internationally. For some reason, the movie never got made, but Johnny and Mickey became friends and frequently see each other both in Paris and LA.

Johnny Hallyday, 68, was always described as “The French Elvis Presley and he admits he was heavily influenced by Elvis’s style. Johnny’s first album “Here’s Johnny” came out in 1960 and he was an immediate hit everywhere in Europe except the UK. He’s still a huge star in France. Johnny has a house in LA and he enjoys walking around in relative anonymity when he comes here. Maybe if Elvis had lived, HE would have turned up at the Coachella music festival with a much younger wife. Who knows?

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
