Style Icons: Male »Claude Francois

Claude FrancoisHe is considered the Elvis Presley of France, honest. He brought the American Rock and Roll sound to France in the sixties and ran with it — all the way to sequined orange suits, amazing backup dancers, and fantastically absurd choreography. When I first saw this video all I could think was yes, yes, YES! This is how I would perform if I were a singer only with Alice Cooper blood and guts theatrics thrown in.

Nicknamed Clo-Clo by his legions of fans, Francois left those fans terribly heart broken when he died electrocuted in his bath tub at the age of 39. Here and here are more videos to watch to make you fall in love with Clo – Clo like I know you will.
