Alain Bashung est mort de cancer
Alain Bashung est mort
Actor. Musician and singer Alain Bashung has died of lung cancer at the age of 61. Starting out as lounge singer mostly in American venues he eventually made a name for himself in music. His CD « Fantasie Militaire » is one of my favoutite albums. It's wonderfully dark and moody with ambiguous lyrics... what could be better?
His acting career begain in 1981 in the film « Ma soeur chinoise » by Alain Mazars.
He often played here in Montréal, even giving a free concert at Les Francofolies one year.
