- 1 July 2021 - 22:00 /

After long months of hesitation, Johnny Hallyday agreed to give himself up to Jean-Christophe Rosé and Daniel Rondeau in a river interview. With sincerity, intelligence and simplicity, he tells us sixty years of songs, of successes which have embraced and punctuated the history of France and the French. From Leaving the Girls to Staying Alive, with his 100 million records sold, Johnny Hallyday stands out as a great artist: a tireless worker, both embracing and anticipating the evolution of society, with an intuition and an instinct outside of the common, constantly renewing itself, in its songs as in its shows. From Rock n'roll to Elvis at the very beginning of the 60s to the grandiose concerts of the 2000s which welcome 80,000 spectators, all in the workand the life of Johnny Hallyday tells of his time: France's fascination with post-war America , cars and the myth of James Dean, the Hi Friends years, the yé-yé generation, the glorious thirties, the drugs and Jimmy Hendricks, Brel friends, Eddy Mitchell, women, Jean-Luc Godard, alcohol and the nightlife, even politics.
