    RIP Johnny Halladay

    No mention of Jimi in this obit
    http ://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-42247551


    Here's a clip of Jimi doing "Ma Poupee Qui Fait Non". I don't know why I always thought this was associated with Johnny Hallyday. Apparently its Michael Polnaroff. But here it is anyway, what the hey.

    Video of Jimi Hendrix in a smoke ring contest with Johnny Hallyday. My apologies for not being able to find a link that will play directly without required registration. Even though a YouTube search brings me directly to this clip, I can't get a link for the clip that doesn't require registration. Weird.

    Here's Johnny doing "Hey Joe". (No reg required.)

    And another later "Hey Joe" with even more Jimi influence.

    I'm afraid the best quality will require registration as it comes from INA (National Audio Institute).

    Here is a great Johnny Hallyday introduction from France 24 English TV :

    NEW YORK TIMES NEWSPAPER - DECEMBER 7, 2017


    Q - You said “the people who raised me.” That would not be your parents?

    A - My father left my mother when I was six months old, and my mother was a model and she couldn’t take care of me. So the sister of my father took care of me, and she had a daughter who was a dancer, who was married to an American named Lee Halliday. They took me on tour with them. My name is Jean-Philippe Smet, but I took Johnny Hallyday because they called me John. I was raised by an American.

    Q - Is that why you’ve always been drawn to American rock? And do French interpretations of American songs?
    Photo

    A - Yes. My favorite musicians are American. In the early ’60s, Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent. After that, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and after that, Rick James a little bit. And Jimi Hendrix.

    You know, he was my opening act for a while. I discovered him in London at a club one night. I was with Otis Redding, and we were eating at the restaurant of the club, and we heard that incredible guitar. We went to see who was playing, and it was Jimi. I was about to start a tour in Europe, and I needed an opening act and said, “Do you want to do it?” And he said, “Yeah.” So he toured with me for six months, and we became friends.

    After he did “Hey Joe,” he said, “I have a version I’m not using. Do you want it?” I said, “Yeah.” I went to London and recorded “Hey Joe” in French, with Jimi Hendrix playing acoustic behind. It became a No. 1 hit for two months.

    After that, he became — well, you know about Jimi. He started to take all those drugs, and then he died. One thing I miss in my life is Jimi. Jimi was one of my few best friends. I hate drugs for that. Drugs take all the good fellows I know.

    Re: RIP Johnny Hallyday

    FROM THE FRENCH BOOK - "Johnny" Rock Life By Frederic Quinonero 2014

    Jimmy and Johnny, a friendship fantasy In the documentary

    A king to be sad, Johnny Hallyday says the difference between patronage and friendship: friends don't exist, says, it is advertising, it doesn't mean anything. Friends that wants to say something. The journalist and historian Emmanuel Berl agrees: Johnny is right. It was the idea of Plato, Montaigne, and a little of Levi-Strauss But it depends on the companies that friendship becomes possible, or impossible, Johnny takes pleasure in telling of the story, he likes to embellish situations and invent amities, as if his glory were not enough. France loves the legends, even if some of the face easily to arguments that are concrete and verifiable. Thus, one can recall without too much overflow from the framework of the historic meeting and the alleged friendly relationship between the two artists with the same initials: Johnny Hallyday, and Jimi Hendrix. And to do this, solicit the arbitration of a man, Yazid Mano, specialist Hendrixien undisputed in France, and let us rely on the outcome of an investigation thoroughly conducted by his care.

    Everyone agrees on the date of the meeting which would be Thursday, September 29, 1966. That day Johnny Hallyday is in London, with its musicians. the addresses at Olympic Sound Studio, in the suburb of Barnes, the last sessions of The Lost Generation. Arrives five days early to New York with his manager Chas Chandler (former bassist of the Animals) Jimi Hendrix jam in the evening at Blaise" Club, with the Brian Auger Trinity. And Johnny, accompanied by, among others, Giorgio Gomelsky, and The Hallyday, coming to dinner in this club after his day of recording The opinions differ, however, on the place of the meeting, some witnesses placing the event at the Cromwellian Club, 3 Cromwell Road, a few hundred yards of the Blaise"

    In a recent interview with Yazid Manou, Giorgio Gomelsky confirms, however, the Blaise" and it undertakes to confirm his version, for the obvious reason that the producer, spent in the bars and music clubs, is the press fastener of this club. -Johnny and myself were not at the Cromwellian and Brian Auger no more, as far as I know, he said to Yazid Manou I was producing Johnny Hallyday. We left the studio at around 23 hours and I took the gang "French Blaise" for dinner. I was not very familiar with the Cromwellian but I know that the restaurant was too small to host all the French team. In addition, a press clipping of the time, miraculously found, corroborates the concert of Brian Auger with the Blaise" the famous 29 September. Of which act. Everything seems complicated in the reconstruction of the moment that the lovers of rock agree to call history, except the obvious: an agreement is reached this evening between the clan Hallyday, on the one hand, Jimi Hendrix and Chas Chandler of the other part. One may think that the meeting has been caused, how to Yazid Manou, Since Gomelsky knew that Johnny was preparing a new show and that, with The Hallyday, its artistic director, he was in search of attractions for the first part, let us not forget that, since his return from the weapon and a few shows played in the dirty half-empty, Johnny
    Hallyday has the firm intention of hitting a great shot!

    Dazzled by the virtuosity of this young guitarist is totally unknown that plays with his teeth, Johnny and Lee want to commit: I've never felt such a shock since Elvis Presley. Jimi, this is tomorrow, the future, the future. This mutant giant plays the rock the most wild. He announced the rematch of America In England and the decay of the *Swinging London" , is amazed Johnny When, therefore, he must act quickly, because the mini -tour starts on the 13th of October, in Évreux (cinema Novelty) and Nancy (movie Rio) the 14 has Villerupt (hall) 15 and finally to Paris, Olympia, the 18 for a Musicorama broadcast on Europe No. 1.

    Chas Chandler played his role of manager, accepting the offer, while the group is not yet fully formed: Only Noel Redding, the bass player, was hired the same day, in the afternoon, during a hearing at Birdland (off Jermyn Street, Soho) the lack of the drummer, Mitch Mitchell, who will be drawn at random the next day or after next day reminds Yazid Manou Thus was born, in an emergency, The Jimi Hendrix Experience. A group of legend, even though few people were aware of it in the moment. For proof, in his account of the entertainment given to the cinema of the Novelty in Evreux, the reporter for the Daily Eure Flash describes the recent discovery of Johnny Hallyday. He was a singer and guitarist to the hair broussaileuse, bad cocktail of James Brown and Chuck Berry who contorsionne for a good quarter of an hour on the stage while playing, sometimes the guitar with the teeth.

    Alain Lambert nineteen-year-old in 1966 and a resident of Evreux, present at the Novelty, at the first public of the Hendrix Experience. He remembers: It was a cinema, with a balcony to the former, and a capacity of five hundred seats around. I came to see Johnny Hallyday because I loved him, but I enjoyed especially the English musicians he had at the time, namely Tommy Brown and Micky Jones. And this is the way it has been able to enjoy in the first part of a large, Black, afro hairstyle, who wore a jacket in suede with fringes and I have found the name, written in felt-tip pen on a white sheet, at intermission. Being myself a guitarist, to a more modest level, I immediately spotted his entrance on the stage of his splendid Fender Stratocaster white and I remember that immediately he mounted the potentiometer of the amp. I was very impressed by his performance. And I yelled at them with a friend musician, which called him a clown because Jimi was playing with the guitar in the back and that he had bitten her the ropes! Me that my marked forever. I did, however, not understood at the time it was going to become a huge star, otherwise I would asked him for an autograph. As he passed in front of me at intermission to go for a drink in the bar!

    Certainly there is a deep respect between Johnny Hallyday and Jimi Hendrix, and a mutual admiration. Chas Chandler will speak in glowing terms the showman French and speaks of the influence he could have on her foal: Johnny Hallyday was a master of the manipulation of the public. Hendrix and I had a habit of sitting in the last row in the dirty and say: Look what he's doing, look at this! * And even if Hendrix knew all the tricks of the trade, a certain way, look a French put a little grace in these *tips* and *tricks* was helping him to improve his behavior in the scene. There was a lot of advantage. Frankly, the *number of the Hendrix Experience the entire basis of the number - is advantage of this tour of Johnny Hallyday, it is no doubt That is - on the other hand of friendship today claimed by Hallyday Referring to the mini-tour, the late Ticky. Holgado has this comment enthusiastic during a television show 203: We had a great time, because every night there was Hendrix, who was there. I remember at the time people said: *oh, there, there, it's strong, And then, in the hotels in the evening, it was unplugged. With the acoustic guitars. It is one of the most beautiful memories of my life s Nancy, the two singers find themselves to dinner at the cafe Fo, Stanislas square, which is surrounded by Chas Chandler, Lee Hallyday and musicians. A sequence, or we see them both blow rings of smoke is immortalised by the filmmaker Claude Goret, sent by TSR to film The Return of Johnny After the concert of Olympia, it would seem that Johnny has finished the evening with Jimi, Chas Chandler and Micky Jones, Whisky Galore, in the rue de Seine. Legend tells that Jimi Hendrix made an ox in the box Le Tchoo-Tchoo, the Robinson Village, the entertainment complex created by Johnny in Plessis-Robinson. Johnny say that Jimi stayed in Paris for four days after the Olympia and stayed at home.

    My point of doubt concerns only the relationship they would have after the October 18, 1966, evidenced by Yazid Manou According to me, Hendrix and Hallyday are seen at four concerts, and then may be crossed, because Hal, often went to London to record. But it stops there. Furthermore, no person other than Johnny does not speak of these meetings later. And again! He speaks of his friendship with Hendrix that since 1993 This year, to celebrate fifty years Hallyday, Universal unearthing of its drawers a taken new of Hey Joes, on which Jimi Hendrix, allegedly came to visit the studio recording, have played acoustic guitar intro. This treasure is then burned onto a CD, offered as a bonus in a book collector I've never believed in this story, " says Yazid Manou I've done various searches, I listened carefully to the title that I sent to all specialists in the world, all formal: this is not Jimi plays! How to imagine such a thing: Jimi playing three seconds of intro, and then basta? Not to mention that his managers Chas Chandler and Mike Jeffery, watched over him with vigilance! How do you explain that the two celebrities were found together in a studio and as ever no-one has pipé mott? Neither Chandler, nor the producers of the halyday, or the musicians present that day! Yazid Manou doubt as to the truthfulness of the words of Johnny Hallyday when he said that his friend Jimi Hendrix was asleep in his home during his visits to Paris: It is known all the time, and Jimi came in France. And there came not alone, because it was always for professional reasons. No, all this does not hold. And since Johnny was so buddy with Jim, why did he not come to the October 9, 1967 to see at Olympia, and then again in 1968 so This belated awakening of Johnny compared to the left-handed gifted adds to the doubts of the specialists Hendrixiens My goal is not to put Johnny in trouble, however, points out Yazid Manou

    I respect him too much for that. We can understand that the time helping it to confuse some of the events and that everything is confused in his memory, with all that he has lived! For example, when he says in Claire Chazal that Jimi and him have been running for a year, it is a blunder adorable. But the thing that I believe to be essential, and it deserves to be told and repeated because many do not know or have forgotten, is that Jimi has a lot to Johnny. Johnny gave him his chance, the opportunity to make his first concerts in the world with Experience! This is not nothing. And this is the same as it! should be borne in mind, and not the pretended friendship of the two artists. Johnny should insist on this point, instead of trying to enliven a relationship, which everyone cares about, The reality is quite as beautiful as that: his name is historically associated with that of Hendrix. And nobody can do anything to change it To this, huge respect to Johnny Hallyday!
