Isn’t he sometimes referred to as the “French Elvis”? I know nothing of his music but have seen his name pop up from time to time over the years. If memory serves, Mick Jones from Foreigner was in his band in the early part of his career.

Sure, but using 50's-60's motown & Top 40 hits translated into french for you stardom is kinda lame.

This was one of his biggest hits in French speaking countries.

He did have excellent musicians on his touring bands. Paul Personne & Norbert Krieff

Sorry to hear. I wasn’t a huge fan but generally liked their music. I considered going to see them a couple of years ago in a familiar venue but didn’t pull the trigger. I believe they were playing a Who tribute on that tour. Any COD?

https://tvtonight.com.au/2017/12/vale-rory-odonoghue.html

Performer Rory O’Donoghue, best known for the iconic 70s comedy The Aunty Jack Show, has died, aged 68.
O’Donoghue rose to fame on ABC’s The Aunty Jack Show as Thin Arthur alongside Grahame Bond and Garry McDonald as Kid Eager, under director Maurice Murphy. Bond and O’Donoghue met at Sydney University, performing in revues after O’Donoghue played The Artful Dodger in a Sydney production of the musical Oliver!

Aunty Jack was created as an ABC Radio children’s radio series, to replace the long-running The Argonauts Club, partly inspired by Bond’s overbearing Uncle Jack, his grandfather Ben Doyle and Dot Strong the ABC’s last official tea lady. The cross-dressing, moustachioed, trucker and pantomime dame made her unmistakeable debut in Aunty Jack’s Travelling Show, an episode of The Comedy Game, broadcast in late 1971. It was enough to win a stand-alone series with Bond threatening to “rip yer bloody arms off” and O’Donoghue singing the theme song.

Boy's Own Macbeth has to be mentioned. He and Grahame Bond had that show on the road from 1979 through 1982 in Australia and the US. I saw it when it came to Adelaide. Brilliant show. I still have the vinyl album.

Leafs legend Johnny Bower dies at 93

Few players in NHL history were as well-liked by their peers and fans as the warm, gentle, good-natured man from Prince Albert, Sask.
Johnny Bower was a legend. He was Stanley Cup champion. He had a wicked poke-check. And he was beloved, not just by fans of the Toronto Maple Leafs, but fans throughout hockey.
The hockey world mourns the passing of Bower, who died Tuesday after a short battle with pneumonia.

Star Wars' Alfie Curtis dead aged 87: Mark Hamill reveals news with heartbreaking tweet
The London-born actor was also known for his role in The Elephant Man

Alfie Curtis, who played Dr Evazan in Star Wars : Episode IV - A New Hope, has died aged 87.

The London-born actor played a threatening drunk man in the famous bar scene during the original 1977 movie.

Alfie was also known for his roles in 1980 film The Elephant Man and the Eighties TV series Cribb.

Mark Hamill , who played Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars films, tweeted a tribute to the actor this morning.

He said: "Alfie Curtis made the Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina scene - one of the most memorable I've ever been a part of - even more memorable.

"As horrific as he was on-camera, off-camera he was funny, kind and a real gentleman.

"Thanks Alf - you'll be missed."

The cause of death has not yet been revealed.

Dr Evazan was a promising plastic surgeon whose unorthodox methods ended up harming his patients more than helping them.

A life of smuggling and piracy soon followed—which led him to link up with Ponda Baba, who liked to drink just as much as he did.

To the delight of many fans, Evazan and his partner notably popped up in Rogue One, lurching around Jedha, though the younger version of the character was played by Michael Smiley.
