Alain Bashung: Cimetière du Père-Lachaise #3

1947 – 2009'

Alain Bashung (or Baschung) was a singer-songwriter and rock musician. He comes from a Breton mother and an Algerian father (whom he never knew), and he was particularly popular in the eighties. His surname is from an Alsatian his mother married shortly after his birth. His 1991 album Osez Josephine was made in collaboration with Jean Fauque, the title track from which Delphine de Vigan took the line 'Plus rien ne s'oppose à la nuit' for her the auto/biographical work on her mother.
