No Doubt You Rock The Blues Away

No Doubt You Rock The Blues Away

Everywhere he goes, no one can’t resist his charm, his powerful presence… and No Doubt You Rock The Blues Away Man!
Terrific Sky Blue Eyes of a wolf, a Blond Lion mane, well, a Magnetic presence, and a Rock’n’Roller in heart… yeah,  that’s the way it is.
As often said, “Legends never die”, French will go on to commune with him, for a long time to come.

Many frenchies claim: “He is our king of Rock’n’Roll in france”!

With almost 60 years’ career! so, Hats off Dude!!

Sure many people in France often laughted at him…  Whether they like it or not, this Great Personality is however about a Pure Heart, a True Soul, and ever devoted to his wide audience, as an inspirational and talented man who, in his stormy life, fought courageously for Staying Alive!!,  on many ways.

Chuck Berry: “You know sometimes I’m a rocker and sometimes I’m all a roller
I may go down sometimes but I come back to Rock’n’Roller …”

When he was a kid, or young teenager, he met Monsieur Maurice Chevalier!:)  Maurice gave him a good tip as follows:

“if you want to get anywhere in music, be sure to make a hit when you get on stage, also when it’s time to exit stage, as for the time between, just give your Best…”

Oh my! Sure he got it!! 🙂 till the end … even until his funeral worthy of a “King”!  as evidenced by this huge farewell last Saturday that was to be expected, since about one million paying last tribute to Him, as a whole day of devotion in Paris. “oh well, c’est du jamais vu!”.

He recorded about 1,000 songs, sold more than 110m discs, performed more than 100 live tours…

About 30 million spectators, more than 3200 concerts, about 696 performances at famous Parisian venues such as L’Olympia, Palais des Sports, Bercy, Zénith, Stade de France, Parc des Princes, and twice in front of the Eiffel tower.

Hey hey hey!  That says it all, am I right? 😛

He worked with biggest talents from uk, usa, France mainly. Well, to me, he remains a great singer, showman and actor!

we Hope his final days were characterised by a sense of inner well-being and restoring deep peaceful spiritual healing… and for sure, it must be! million Souls sending Him Sincere Love.

And no matter various music genres he and the band played all over the 58 past years. What matters is about last memory of his Eternal “Rock’n’Roll attitude”. In France, he is considered as “The Voice” 🙂

Not surprising that million people here and abroad Admire him, Love him… the same way the Rock’n’Roller truly loves his Audience as well. He rightly deserves such Recognition.

Many frenchies often confess that He is the one who was able,  on their own hard days to give them “ L’envie d’avoir envie” meaning  “give me the desire, the desire to feel desire” meaning to resist the trials of life, for staying alive! also the only one who was able “to light up their life!”  when listening to:

and I do understand them all!

Otherwise, That tells quite a lot about Frenchies state of mind… sometimes.

Finally what about his absolute Aim? the Aim of us all I suppose… just A Prayer of Love which may be summarized that way with “hymn of love” ; “l’hymne à l’amour” :

Alors Respect Monsieur Johnny Hallyday (Jean-Philippe Léo Smet), born 15 June 1943; died 6 December 2017. The French Rock’n’Roll attitude…

That’s all for now!

Thank you for reading, for sharing whenever possible…

Enjoy a perfect day! & We wish you and your family a restful and reflective festive season.

Bonnes fêtes à TOUS! 😉

Hail Here Comes A Brave New World

Hail Here Comes A Brave New World

Today is another day. However, the time is now and we cannot wait another day. Hail Here Comes A Brave New World!

Those who are praying all around the world achieve more amazing work than those who are fighting, now, If everything in the world is going so wrong, that means there are likely to be facing more fights than prayers.  (D Cortes)

That’s a good point.
However, how about:

Those who are doing right all around the world achieve more amazing work than those who are wrecking efforts, now, If everything in the world is going so wrong, that means there are likely to be facing more huge setback than Right actions. (Me)

On my way to local market, I met Phil. “hi! Are you Still inshore fisherman?” Indeed he still is. “How are you doing?” ,  Phil: “So-so … part of catch of the day was directly thrown away in a big trash… But besides everything’s going fine, You Got it?”  ‘not sure, but I’m gonna try.

The Day Birdsong will Turn Off

Songbirds are in danger

Passerines also called Songbirds account for more than half the earth’s birds population… until The Day Birdsong will Turn Off

At this time, nearly half of the birds disappeared the last 40 years.

Passerines species declined considerably

A great work of observation in Canada’s Boreal Forest pointed out that we’re losing common species, everywhere in the world. Since persistent decline over the last 40 years.

In France, The Skylark (Alauda arvensis) about more than a third has disappeared yet.

Based on 20 billion birds, about Half die every year during migration periods.

On their migratory routes, from the breeding area to an appropriate wintering area for millennia, now they have to face more dangers, as deforestation, a new and urban landscape

Many people are worried about the consequences, as in Utica, New York State, where team of volunteers look after birds, they are so small and are subject to predators by night.

Did you know?
