A new job by Johnny Hallyday … or almost. Jean-Baptiste Guégan, his trumpeting double vocal, is about to record a record. Songs written for Le Taulier by his friend and composer Michel Mallory, which Johnny Hallyday had validated but did not have time to record.
In his house in Normandy, Michel Mallory receives Jean-Baptiste Guégan for rehearsals. Here, Johnny Hallyday is ubiquitous: gold discs surround the walls and surround their shoulders with a guitar featured by the missing star last December. With him, Michel Mallory lived "50 years of life, complicity and friendship", in his words. Between two sounds of the double, he praises the talent of the latter:
"Sings like that, it does not imitate anyone, it fell into the boiler when it was small and it is impregnated," he told BFMTV. "At the same time, he has his own talent."
Authentic and artist
Jean-Baptiste Guégan, who currently swears the jury and television viewers France has incredible talent in M6, explains: "I am singing songs that eventually Johnny could also sing, but I have my paw. They are me."
Thanks to him, Michel Mallory wants to give life to the last songs he created for his friend: "After this, you will not hear about me," he says. "It's over."
Jean-Baptiste Guégan will go to Nashville to record these last songs. The release of the disc is scheduled for the end of 2019.
