1952 - Brassens meets the famous music-hall star Patachou

Brassens's vertiginous rise to fame did not actually begin until the 1950's. In the early days of his career Brassens had to struggle to get his work accepted on the cabaret circuit. However, thanks to Jacques Grello, a singer already known on the cabaret scene, Georges managed to place a few songs at the Caveau de la République, Milord l'Arsouille, la Villa d'Este and the famous Lapin Agile cabaret in Montmartre. But audiences were not really interested in his lyrics.

The songwriter was beginning to lose hope of ever making a living on the cabaret circuit when, in 1952, he auditioned for the singer Patachou, who owned one of the most fashionable night-spots in Paris. There were very few people in the audience on March 6th when Brassens sang his material, but the few there were greeted his performance with rapturous applause and Patachou engaged him on the spot. (Thanks to this audition Brassens would also meet Pierre Nicolas, who would become his loyal double-bass player for the rest of his career). Patachou, greatly impressed by Brassens's work, finally managed to persuade him that he should be up on stage singing his work rather than her. In spite of the fact that Brassens was an extremely timid man who had never imagined himself as anything but a simple songwriter, he would finally overcame his stage fright and begin singing on the cabaret circuit.

Brassens went on to prove an enormous hit, both with cabaret audiences and the music critics and Jacques Canetti, artistic director of the Polydor label and owner of Les Trois Baudets cabaret immediately offered the singer a permanent spot. Canetti was also keen to get Brassens into the recording studio. But first he sent the singer off on a summer tour so that he would gain the experience necessary to confront major Parisian audiences when he supported Henri Salvador. Canetti needn't have worried, Brassens proved an enormous hit with audiences when he performed with Salvador later that year. Nothing could stop Brassens's rise to fame now - not even controversial songs like "Le Gorille" (which openly denounced the death penalty).

Brassens's lyrics also caused a few problems when it came to recording some of his songs, but thanks to Jacques Canetti's unbending will, Brassens' first 45rpm and 78rpm singles came out on the Polydor label in 1952.

1953 - Concert debut at the Bobino

On October 16 1953, Georges Brassens gave his first major concert in Paris, performing at the Bobino Theatre. (Brassens's name would remain inextricably linked to the Bobino's history, for the singer performed there no less than 13 times). 1953 also saw the publication of Brassens's new novel "La Tour des miracles". In December of that year Brassens's début album was released, under the humourous title "Georges Brassens chante les chansons poétiques (et souvent gaillardes) de ... Georges Brassens". ("Georges Brassens sings the poetic (and often rather risqué) songs of Georges Brassens"). In 1954 Brassens also performed at the Olympia for the first time (appearing at the legendary Paris music-hall twice in February and returning for another successful concert in September).

1954 also saw the publication of "La mauvaise réputation", a collection of poems and lyrics which proved that Brassens was not only a talented singer with an innovative singing style, but also a gifted poet with absolute mastery of the French language. Brassens's exceptional talent was recognised later that year when he was awarded the "Grand Prix de l'Académie du Disque Charles Cros" for his album "Le parapluie". Brassens would also go on to set the work of other French poets to music (François Villon in the song "Ballade des dames du temps jadis", Victor Hugo in "Gastibelza" and his friend Paul Fort in the song "Le petit cheval").

Following the release of his second album in 1954, Brassens, now under Canetti's judicious management, set off on numerous tours of Europe and North Africa. In 1955 the newly-created radio station Europe 1 was the first French station to dare to play Brassens's controversial song "Le Gorille", which had previously been banned from the nation's airwaves. After the release of his third album in April 1955, Brassens set off on tour, once again giving a memorable performance at the Olympia in October. (Later that year the singer would buy Jeanne and Marcel Planche’s home for them, purchasing the neighbouring house for himself).

After a series of concerts at the Bobino in January 1956, Brassens was offered a role in René Clair's film "Portes des Lilas". In his first and only film role Brassens was perfectly cast, playing a character very similar to himself. At the start of 1956 Brassens's old friend Pierre Onténiente became his private secretary, helping him set up his own recording company "Les Editions Musicales 57". Meanwhile Brassens continued with his busy live schedule, performing at the Olympia in May, L’Alhambra in October and the Bobino (from November 29 to December 18). The singer spent the following year on tour (only returning to Paris for a brief appearance at the Olympia (between October 22 and November 17).

Later that year Brassens, who had continued living with his old friends Marcel and Jeanne Planche, bought a mansion in Crespières (in Northern France).

In 1959 the ever-energetic Brassens embarked upon a new tour and gave another memorable performance at the Olympia in November. But while the singer was holidaying in Biarritz that year he became violently ill (an incident which would later inspire his song "L’Epave" ("The Wreck").

In fact ever since the end of the war Brassens had been suffering from renal colic and kidney stones, and he was often in such pain that he would have to leave the stage in mid-performance.

1960 proved to be a somewhat happier year for Brassens, beginning with a successful series of concerts at the Olympia (January 21 - February 15), followed by a stint at Bobino in April. (It was during one of his concerts at the Bobino that Brassens would learn of the death of one of his closest friends, the poet Paul Fort, on April 20). The following year Brassens flew off to Canada on an extensive tour which lasted through October and November. The singer then returned to give another successful show at the Olympia.

December 1962 was marked by two major events, the release of "Les trompettes de la renommée", Brassens's ninth album and the death of his mother Elvira on December 31st.

The following year Brassens was taken into hospital for a kidney operation on January 16th 1963, just a few weeks before his old teacher Alphonse Bonnafé published his first official biography. Later that year a boxed set of 10 records was released to mark the tenth anniversary of Brassens's singing career.

1964 - Brassens writes the theme song "les Copains d'abord"

In 1964 Brassens renewed his links with French cinema, writing the theme song "Les Copains d'abord" for Yves Robert's film "Les Copains". This song was included on Brassens's new album released in November of that year. The release coincided with an extremely successful series of concerts at the Bobino (from October 21 1964 - January 10 1965), 120,000 fans flocking to see Brassens in concert.

On March 28 1964 Brassens lost his father, and this sad event was soon followed by the death of his old friend Marcel Planche.

On October 12 1965 Brassens got the chance to perform with one of his greatest idols, Charles Trenet, when the pair sang together on the radio programme "Musicora", recorded live at the ABC. The following year after an extensive national tour, Brassens went on to appear in concert with Juliette Gréco at the Théâtre National de Paris (September 16 - October 23).

After living in Jeanne and Marcel Planche's tiny house in impasse Florimont for more than 20 years, Brassens finally moved out to live in a more modern appartment. Modern flats were obviously not to his taste however for he moved out shortly afterwards to buy a house in the 15th arrondissement in 1969.

Following a series of concerts at the Bobino and another successful tour, Brassens was taken back into hospital where he underwent another operation on May 12 1967. Later that year Brassens was honoured by the French Academy who awarded him the prestigious "Prix de poésie de l'Académie Française". The writer René Fallet also paid tribute to his old friend, publishing a biography of the singer.

Georges Brassens was forced to watch the revolutionary events of May 1968 from his hospital bed, where he was recovering from another attack of renal colic. Later that year news of a far less happy event reached the singer when he learnt of the death of his old friend Jeanne Planche (who died on October 24 1968).

By the end of the 60's, however, Brassens was firmly back at the forefront of the music scene. Joined on stage by his faithful double-bass player Pierre Nicolas and a new musician, young guitarist Joël Favreau, Brassens threw himself back into his live performances with passion.

1969 - the legendary interview with Brel and Ferré

On 6 January 1969 Brassens was invited to take part in a legendary programme organised by the French music magazine "Rock et Folk" and the radio station RTL who got Brassens into the studio with the two other most important stars of French chanson, Léo Ferré and Jacques Brel. Brassens's work was also honoured in the education system that year, his texts included in the entrance exam for the prestigious Ecole Normale Supérieure. Brassens ended the year with a series of triumphant concerts at his favourite venue, the Bobino (October 14 1969 - January 4 1970). After two concerts at La Mutualité in March Brassens embarked upon another extensive tour in 1970.

In 1972 a boxed set of 11 albums and a complete collection of Brassens's poems and lyrics were released to mark the 20th anniversary of his career. Later that year Brassens was to buy a house in the country, in Lézardrieux (near Paimpol) in Brittany. Brassens, born on the Mediterranean coast, had discovered Brittany through his old Breton friend Jeanne Planche. Over the years Brassens grew to love this region where the picturesque ports filled with the chatter of fishermen reminded him of his childhood in the harbour town of Sète. He even went so far as to learn the Breton dialect.

From October 1972 through to January 1973 Brassens performed another long series of concerts at the Bobino (supported by a host of young up-and-coming stars such as Maxime Le Forestier, Henri Tachan, Yves Simon and Philippe Chatel who went on to write a book about Brassens). Although Brassens was only 51 at this point, the singer, who had been considerably weakened by his health problems, had already started to find his touring schedule exhausting. Brassens's 1973 tour of France and Belgium was to prove his last. Fortunately, Brassens's concert at the Sherman Theatre at Cardiff University on October 28 of that year was recorded (one of the very few live Brassens recordings ever made) and released as the "Live in Great Britain" album in 1974.

In 1975 Brassens was awarded the "Grand Prix de la ville de Paris".

1977 - the final farewell at the Bobino

Brassens recorded his last album in 1976. On March 20 1977 the singer gave a final performance at the Bobino (the last in a series of 'farewell' concerts which had been attended by thousands of fans).

In 1979 Brassens's old musician friend Moustache persuaded him to return to the studio, to take part in recording an album of jazz versions of his most famous songs. Brassens, who had been a great jazz fan since his youth, readily accepted and joined a host of famous American jazz musicians in the studio as they recorded "Chanson pour l'auvergnat", "le Pornographe", "la Chasse aux papillons" and "Elégie pour un rat de cave" (the only non-instrumental track on the album). Later that year Brassens would also sing on Philippe Châtel’s album "Emilie Jolie", performing "La Chanson du hérisson" as a duet with Henri Salvador.

At the end of the year Jacques Chirac, mayor of Paris at the time, presented Brassens with the coveted "Grand Prix du Disque" for his outstanding contribution to French music. In 1980, the singer, already very sick, made a final trip to the studio to record a series of old French chanson classics (Charles Trenet, Jean Boyer, Paul Misraki and his own works) to raise money for the "Perce Neige" charity for handicapped children set up by his old friend Lino Ventura.

In November Brassens, diagnosed as suffering from cancer, underwent a third kidney operation. The following year death, which he had so often depicted in his poetry and his songs, finally caught up with him on October 29 1981. Brassens died in the tiny village of Saint-Gely-du-Fesc, near his hometown Sète, at the house of his doctor and lifelong friend Maurice Bousquet. The singer was buried in Sète in the Cimetière du Py, known locally as the "Cemetery of the Poor".

Georges Brassens's modest simplicity made him one of the best-loved figures on the French music scene. His repertoire of classic songs, often controversial but never gratuitously provocative, painted a telling portrait of the society he lived in. Brassens poetry and songs live on today, studied by millions of French school children as part of the national curriculum and covered by singers and musicians the world over. Graeme Allwright has recorded Brassens’s songs in English, while Sam Alpha has sung them in Creole and Paco Ibanez in Spanish. A host of famous French stars have, of course, covered the most famous Brassens classics (Maxime Le Forestier, Renaud, Barbara and the Frères Jacques have all devoted an entire album to Brassens songs). A special tribute album, "Chantons Brassens", the brainchild of Joël Favreau, also included contributions from actors and singers such as Michel Fugain, Manu Dibango, Philippe Léotard and Françoise Hardy.

Remembered as the 'famous singer with the moustache', as well as a compassionate humanist concerned for his fellow men, Brassens has become a legendary part of French musical heritage.

SERGE REGGIANI
Serge Reggiani, who died of a heart attack at his Paris home on 22 July 2004, belonged, like legendary ‘chanson’ star Yves Montand, to a generation of Italians who emigrated to France in the first half of this century. Reggiani, who contributed to the Latinisation of French culture over the following decades, came to symbolise the heyday of the Latin Quarter. And, for his fellow artists as well as his adoring public, he represented exceptional all-round talent, making his name as a poet and a painter as well as leaving his mark on French literature, French cinema and the French music scene.
Serge Reggiani was born in Reggio Emilia, a town in northern Italy, on 2 May 1922.

Boby LAPOINTE




Robert Lapointe – better known to music fans as Boby Lapointe – was born in Pézenas in the south of France on 16 April 1922. Long before he began his songwriting career, young Boby indulged the wild imagination for which he later became famous, terrorising the local bourgeoisie with his japes. Indeed, Boby and his band of friends were notorious for playing a series of practical jokes on unsuspecting villagers, painting the church weathercock fluorescent green on Easter Day – or giving the tax collector's prized Pekinese dog an all-over shave!

In his teenage years Boby's one ambition was to take to the air and become a pilot. And, not having a practice plane at his disposal, the hardy young adventurer invented a series of fabulous one-man flying – which led to him making several extended stays in the local village hospital! Showing a greater talent for mathematics than ballistics, Boby went on to pass his 'baccalauréat' and prepare the entrance exams for the prestigious "Centrale" and "Super-aéronautique" schools. He passed both with flying colours. And later in the 1940s Boby went on to put his mathematical genius to good use, inventing an automatic automobile clutch (which made car manufacturers' fortunes a few decades later!) Boby also went on to invent his own method of calculus and in 1968 developed a bi-binary system hailed as a breakthrough in mathematical circles.

Under the Occupation





   
  During the war years Boby's mathematical career was brought to an abrupt halt, however, when the occupying German forces sent him off to work in a forced labour camp in the Austrian town of Linz in 1942. While French chanson star Georges Brassens accepted his lot in the labour camps, Boby rebelled set up his own one-man resistance and made a daring escape one night. Travelling under a series of false identities – including the pseudonym Robert Foulcan (!) – Boby spent seven months on the run and finally managed to join his family in France in May 1944.

Boby eventually moved on the port of La Ciotat near Marseilles where he re-invented himself as a deep-sea diver, hiding out from the German military police several leagues under. Meanwhile, Boby transformed his genius for mathematics into a way with words, publishing a collection of poetry and a treatise on the art of punning. He also tried his hand at songwriting, offering his first efforts to singers passing through the south of France. Boby even made a special trip to Juan-les-Pins to present his work to the famous French chanson troupe Les Frères Jacques. But the foursome were frightened off by the complexity of Boby's songs and the elaborate puns and wordplay in his lyrics. At the end of the war Boby came out of hiding in La Ciotat and in 1946 he married Colette Maclaud, who went on to become the mother of his two children (Ticha and Jacky).

Aragon et Castille

Shortly after their wedding Boby and Colette moved up to Paris where they opened a boutique selling household linen and baby clothes. However, years way ahead of the baby-boom, the couple's business failed to take off – and Boby ended up shutting up shop and getting a divorce! Moving on to earn his living as a TV aerial installer, Boby began to devote more and more time to songwriting. After climbing across the Paris roofs installing antennae by day, the burgeoning songwriter would sit up late into the night composing.

Boby got his first break in 1956 when the French actor Bourvil teamed up with Gilles Grangier to shoot a film called "Poisson d’avril". The film starred Pierre Dux, Maurice Biraud, Denise Grey and comic newcomer Louis de Funès. And it was decided that Bourvil should break into song at one point in the film. Boby had happened to become friendly with Bourvil's accordionist, Etienne Lorin, and it was he who suggested using Boby's song "Aragon et Castille". The film failed to make much of an impact on French cinema screens and "Aragon et Castille" passed largely unnoticed. But this marked the start of Boby's professional songwriting career nonetheless.

Boby soon went on to take centre stage, launching a singing career at a well-known Parisian cabaret called "Le Cheval d’or" (where he performed on the same bill as a host of leading French music stars such as Anne Sylvestre, Raymond Devos, Ricet Barrier and Georges Brassens. With his wrestler's physique, his imperfect elocution and his songs' complicated puns and wordplay, Boby Lapointe did not exactly appear destined to become a cabaret hit. However, Boby went down a storm with French audiences and he soon went from being a lowly support act to the Cheval d'Or's headlining star. Indeed, the public soon started flocking to applaud the bearded wonder's "monkey antics" on a nightly basis.

French film director François Truffaut happened to find himself in the audience at the "Cheval d'Or" one night and fell instantly under Boby's spell. In fact, Truffaut ended up rushing backstage after the show to offer Boby the role of the singing bartender in his film "Tirez sur le pianiste" (starring Charles Aznavour as the famous piano-player). Boby sang two numbers in the film - "Framboise" and "Marcelle". But when Truffaut watched the rushes and heard Boby's muffled diction he decided to sub-title the songs (thus inventing karaoke years before the Japanese!)

It was while working on Truffaut's film set that Boby met another significant player in his career, Philippe Weil, who signed him up to perform at another leading Parisian cabaret, "Les Trois Baudets". In 1960 and 1961 Boby made his first impact on the French charts, scoring hits with "Marcelle", "Le poisson Fa", "Bobo Léon" and "Aragon et Castille".

Verbal Gymnastics

Boby's career continued to go from strength to strength and from this point on he began performing tours and concerts with the renowned French chanson star Georges Brassens. Boby's syntactical gymnastics and verbal juggling delighted audiences up and down the country. Meanwhile, off stage Boby's wild fantasy and over-excited imagination got him into various scrapes. Having already proved he had no head for business, Boby nevertheless insisted on opening his own "café-concert", Le Cadran Bleu on rue de la Huchette. However, Le Cadran Bleu soon went the way of Boby's former boutique bringing Boby to the point of bankruptcy shortly after its opening. Brassens played the Good Samaritan, stepping in to assume part of the singer's debts and also helped him find a series of odd jobs to keep the wolf from the door. Lucien Morisse, programme director of Europe 1, also lent a hand, helping Boby get a new record deal with AZ Disques. But by the mid-60s France was in full "yéyé" (rock'n'roll) mode. And Boby's 'one-man' band style seemed increasingly out of date and old-fashioned.

Boby turned towards the cinema instead, landing roles in Claude Sautet's films "Max et les ferrailleurs" (as a demented half-wit) and "Les choses de la vie" (as a cattle truck-driver). Meanwhile, Joe Dassin, a specialist of sentimental hits, persuaded Boby to sign a new deal with Fontana/Philips and set himself up as his producer. The result of Dassin's intervention was that Boby set off on tour to promote his (final) album "Comprend qui peut". The album featured a famous illustration by French 'naïf' artist Maurice Ghiglion-Green on the cover, picturing Boby in a stripy sailor's shirt burying his nose in a bunch of daisies. (The iconic image would go down in history as Lapointe's signature look!)
