Alain Bashung (born Alain Baschung; ) (1 December 1947 – 14 March 2009) was a Frenchmarker singer, songwriter and actor.

Biography

Youth

Alain Bashung was the son of a Breton factory worker and an Algerianmarker Kabyle father, whom he never knew. His mother remarried, and at the age of one, Bashung was sent to Strasbourgmarker to live with his new stepfather's parents. He spent his childhood in the countryside.

Career

A multi-platinum artist, Bashung received three awards during the ceremony at the Paris Zenith, including best male artist, best album for "Bleu Pétrole" (Barclay/Universal) and best live show. He spent his career singing a pop-chanson repertoire. With 11 trophies won since 1993, he was the most awarded artist in the history of Les Victoires. Bashung, who had cancer, had to postpone several dates of his current tour. While receiving his award, he said he hoped that record companies would "remain in a human dimension by making people happy with records."

Final months

On 1 January 2009, Bashung was made Chevalier (Knight) of the Légion d'honneur. On 28 February 2009, he received three prestigious Victoires de la Musique awards for his final album Bleu pétrole. The 2009 award ceremony was his last public appearance. He appeared frail, but still performed "Résidents de la République".

Bashung died in Paris on 14 March 2009 from lung cancer at the age of 61. He was buried on 20 March 2009 in the Père Lachaise Cemeterymarker.
