    I'm going to admit I'd never heard of him, but I read the article and he's clearly someone who deserves to be remembered. And my wife chastised me for my ignorance in not knowing who he was, besides ;)

    I've heard of him and the word "legendary" is appropriate. RIP.

    In terms of legendary French singers, he's right up there with Edith Piaf. In addition to his career as a singer, he also gave one indelibly memorable movie performance as Charlie, the piano player, in one of Francois Truffaut's best films Shoot the Piano Player. He'll be remembered in France forever.

    It's particularly nice because Piaf discovered him.
