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.

    Multiple news reports say he died either in Paris or a suburb of Paris, not LA!

    Well, if LA really is the center of the world, then technically Marnes-la-Coquette (outside Paris), France *could* be regarded as Greater Los Angeles.

    In any case, the send-off his countrymen and women produced for Johnny was really something. He will surely be missed.

    My sister & I met him one night at Spago about 5 or 6 years ago. We swooned.

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?
