Goodbye to the French Elvis Presley, and a resistance fighter in the war to boot !  Clearly a great man

Lollll ! Aznavour won't die this year, he came to hospital for à sore back, not something important. Plus, he was hospitalized several times before and always recover very fast and well. He has some show till the end of the year So...

Lolllll.

I was beginning to think he was immortal. Obviously not.

 

Farewell sir, you leave a huge gap on the Vivement Dimanche sofa.

I have just heard about that sad thing. Charles Aznavour died at 94. Great singer and charismatic man. RIP!  :(

With his death and Geoffrey Hayes', there is a very strange link.

In the 1970 film The Games, Michael Crawford play's  a character called Harry Hayes.

Aznavour strangely plays a Czech competitor.

All we need now is a rainbow over the Eiffel Tower today.

Also Crawfords on my list next year.

I would have said he was one of the least likely to go on this years list as he was still looking and sounding sharp.But at 94 it doesn`t take much too finish you off.

Crikey.He looks pretty good here.Certainly doesn`t look like he would die 2 days later.Must have been a heart attack stroke or some sort of accident.

If this video was posted here I would have that he would make the year. Not how it's usually used, but "chacun voit midi à sa porte".

Compared to Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis, Aznavour and Bennett both had fairly clean living.

And yet Jerry has outlasted him !

Interesting as The Guardian has him as the French Frank Sinatra rather than the French Elvis Presley!

 

Anyway I must confess he was not on my radar at all .

Reminds me of how Arthur Lowe died the day after he gave a TV interview as well.

That's very sad news, but marvellous that he went out still active and performing at such a grand age.

I don't speak very well in english, i wanted to say that in the interview he says he will live after 100, so that means that even people who is in good shape can be a good deathlisted....

Felt like the type who would go on for years yet, but given how many healthy nonagenarians the Committee picked this year, I suppose statistics reckoned at least one of them would go. Sad loss, but 94's a grand age and he seemed to be making the most of life right up until the end.
