Welcome back. Why do you have a photo of George Brassens as your avatar?

No scandal or bad behaviour to my knowledge but he was an anarchist. He was also a fantastic song writer and had a way of using words. His knowledge of the French language was extraordinary and created a sensation when his song " Le gorille " came out in 1952, way ahead of its time. Great artist who sadly died of cancer.

Indeed - that’s what I knew about him. My French is Ok so I’m only getting some of what he wrote / sang but it’s enough to know he was a pretty extraordinary wordsmith

And yes, Le Gorille is hilarious but also (and I totally agree) anti-death penalty. Is it true his song Fernande basically killed it as a name in France?
