The Day “La Musique” Died. Let the Litigation Roll

Fall 2019

The Robins Kaplan Spotlight

When French rock-and-roll legend Johnny Hallyday died in 2017 at age 74, 1 million people lined the Champs-Élysées for his funeral, and “Merci Johnny” lit up the Eiffel Tower. Fifteen million people later watched his hero’s tribute in Paris. Known as the “French Elvis,” Hallyday, born Jean-Philippe Smet, is credited for bringing rock-and-roll to France. In his remarkable six-decade career, he rubbed elbows with industry legends Jimi Hendrix, Keith Richards, Fats Domino, and Jimmy Page, to name a few.
