Anyone remembers him?
I believe he was born and raised in Egypt. He was famous in his time, in the 60's and 70's. He used to sing with four ladies which were so called "claudettes".
He died on March 11th 1978, he was taking a shower when suddenly there was an electrical failure. He tried to fix it while his feet were still under the water! I think following that day, even though most people knew before, everybody learned a good lesson: never deal with electricity in the water!
Three decades after, the French legendary singer is still alive in some people's hearts. I listen to his songs on the radio and remember them as if it were yesterday.
