Claude Antoine Marie François had a full, if far too short, life. A succession of women and successful songs/hits/singles spanning ballads to Disco. He wrote and sang the song “Comme d’habitute” that with a change of lyrics would become the perennial “My Way”.

Nostalgic memories of growing up at Willow Bog Farm somewhere in Northumberland in the 1940s and 1950s.

He even includes photos of his first end-terrace house and his current bungalow (which he had named “Graceland”) as well as his Record shop. If that article doesn’t deserve a place in my “Odd Stuff” folder, I don’t know what does.
