No Holidays At The French Riviera without… JACQUES DUTRONC

I’m back in that sweet little village Puget-sur-Argens – between Nice and St-Tropez – just
a couple of miles from the magnificent Mediterranean Sea/French Riviera in the South Of France for a short heat wave holiday. The best thing, besides the delicious food and divine wine, the enchanting nature and generous sun is a drive with the car along the sea with
all windows open while listening to French singer/actor/playboy JACQUES DUTRONC,
now 73 and still married, although living apart, with gorgeous singer and 60s sex symbol Françoise Hardy . Way back in the sixties he was probably the coolest French rocker and most risky chansonnier around. Outside of France he was a cult figure and the provocative exponent for French garage rock. Yes, The Beatles & The Rolling Stones were vivid fans.
