Died on June 11, Françoise Hardy left a big void in the French cultural scene. Quickly, speeches flooded in to discuss his life and his work, and in this regard, Christophe Dechavanne’s words did not go unnoticed. An honest opinion to say the least from the PAF star.

With Françoise Hardy, a part of French culture is disappearing. It must be said that the Parisian was one of the last survivors of the yé-yé era, which gave birth to a true cultural revolution and who embodied the France of the Thirty Glorious Years, as carefree as it was alive, as happy as it was inventive. . But that time is over, and the death of the singer reminds us of it.

In recent years, the poor artist was going through real torture, as she was seriously ill. At the RTL microphone, she testified a few months ago:

My life has become so difficult that sometimes I wish I could leave in my sleep.

Christophe Dechavanne’s tribute to Françoise Hardy

On the set of “Quelle Epoque” last Saturday, the set obviously did not fail to mention the sad news. It was Christophe Dechavanne who was the most moved, with tears in his eyes:

Françoise Hardy barely died, Line Renaud starts: “She didn’t…”

She was an extraordinary artist, she made her mark through a thousand things, whether it was her musical art, whether it was her clothes, she was really influential, including in England in the 60s and 70s.

Patrice Carmouze’s acolyte, who never misses an opportunity to point out that he has now made what he calls his “coming out from the left”, however, was keen to highlight the political ideas divergent from Françoise Hardy’s:

She was a wonderful woman who had become a little tougher politically in recent years, but she was extraordinary.

Indeed, the interpreter of “All the boys and girls” had put subjects such as anti-white racism on the table, affirming that it is indeed a reality. She was also very hostile to the demonstrations against pension reform, supporting the movement.

Defining herself “neither right nor left”, she had also questioned Emmanuel Macron regarding a law on the end of life. The President said he was upset, and had actually undertaken to launch these major works, before the dissolution put a damper on the initiative.

An independent and confident woman in who she was and in her comments, even the least consensual, Françoise Hardy undeniably leaves a great void. And like Christophe Dechavanne, we can ultimately only be relieved to know that she is at peace, far from the suffering that plagued the last years of her existence.
