Biography

Born Claude Moine in Paris, France on July 3, 1942, the singer, lyricist and actor is better known by his stage name Eddy Mitchell. Inspired by witnessing Bill Haley and his Comets perform at the Olympia in 1958, he changed his name to Eddy Mitchell and formed the first real French rock'n'roll group, Les Chaussettes Noires, who released five albums during their short career. In 1963, at the young age of 20, he launched his solo career with his debut album Voici Eddy... C'était le Soldat Mitchell. The album moved away from the raw rock ‘n roll of Les Chaussettes Noires, revealing him to be a multi-faced entertainer who performed rock ‘n’ roll, ballads, country music and other genres. He became a star in France and released a series of hit albums including Sur la Route de Memphis (1976), La Dernière Séance (1977),  Le Cimetière des Éléphants (1982), and Rio Grande (1993), which won  the Victoire de la Musique for Best Album of The Year. Other albums – including Come Back (2010), Héros (2013) and Big Band (2015) - confirmed his status as an icon of the French music scene. In 2014 and 2017, he formed the trio Les Vieilles Canailles with fellow French pop and rock veterans Johnny Hallyday and Jacques Dutronc for a few nostalgic performances. After the album La Même Tribu, Volume 1 (2017), he mourned the loss of his long-time great friend Johnny Hallyday. The following year, he released La Même Tribu, Volume 2 (2018), which was followed by Country Rock (2021). His 39th album, Country Rock reached Number 3 on the French charts and included the song “Un petit peu d'amour”, which was a tribute to his late friend Johnny Hallyday.
