    Charles Aznavour dies. Impossible, but true. We shared May 22nd (birthday, but 2 or 3 years apart.) A few years ago I invited him to sing on my album World peace is none of your business. He listened, but declined - a wise man, indeed !
    Music lasts longer than life, and Charles Aznavour is music : now, today, tomorrow and always.

      He had fascists views at the end of his life , even though he was the son of immigrants, anyone sees any similarities?

      This probably means Morrissey will cover one of his songs on his upcoming cover album.

      Probably an obscure b-side, like “Mon petit cornichon d’amour.” A fitting tribute.

      We’ll have to wait and see.

      Not entirely unexpected, but what a voice. I’m embarrassed I haven’t gone out of my way to listen to more of his stuff.

      Some of that 60s and 70s French pop is pure gold, but my rusty and now limited knowledge of the language sometimes let’s me get the gist.

      I wonder what it was about men of that generation that meant even at a young age they looked old? You see it in clips of D-Day where you see nineteen year olds charging off landing craft looking forty. Perhaps it was those bloody great machine guns aimed at them.

      Here’s Bill Haley at just thirteen years of age...

      Probably.

      Only Jacob Rees-Mogg seems to be keeping the tradition alive.

      Morrissey mentioned him at his concert in Belfast in 2015 when listing people he shares the same birthday with.
      The song I am most familiar with is "She" which was his only British number one, beating The Sparks apparently. I quite like Elvis Costello s version too.
      He covered a lot of taboo subjects in his time which would appeal to Morrissey no doubt.

      I know, I saw it too. I was trying to find that rude version of Rainbow that they recorded for the staff Xmas party (allegedly). You know the one...

      Reckon that "message from Morrissey" was written by an intern in the El Segundo office. Blikey you foreigners are lost.
