Johnny Hallyday (1943-2017)

The father of French Rock and Roll is dead. Flamboyant singer and actor Johnny Hallyday (1943-2017) passed away yesterday, 6 December. He was a European teen idol in the 1960s with record-breaking crowds and mass hysteria, but he never became popular in the English-speaking market. In later years he concentrated on being an actor and appeared in more than 35 films. Johnny Hallyday was 74.
