aus Wikipedia, der freien Enzyklopädie

Ronnie Bird (born Ronald Méhu; 24 April 1946 in Boulogne-Billancourt, Hauts-de-Seine) is a French singer.


As a student, Bird attended Lycée Claude Bernard until he had an argument with a teacher. He debuted his recording career in 1964 with Decca, with the title track Adieu à un ami, which was a homage to Buddy Holly. Despite his evident ability and the apparent success of songs like Elle m'attend, Où va-t-elle ?, he ended his artistic career after 5 years.

He is also noted for participating in the French production of the musical Hair between 1968 and 1972 . Moreover, he wrote the lyrics of the song, Precious Things, sung by Dee Dee Bridgewater, in a duet with Ray Charles, which saw success in 1989.

The song Le Pivert (the woodpecker) was prohibited from being played on Radio-France because of, according to an internal memo, its "vulgar attack on good taste". The memo was published in Charlie Hebdo.
