The French Elvis (2)

Forward now to 1976, and a number one, sold gold hit. In France.

Gabrielle tells the story of a love-hate relationship, in which Johnny portrays himself as some kind of chained-up sex slave.

I couldn’t track down a ‘proper’ video for this song, though I did find one with lots of lovely photos of Johnny. This one on the left is my favourite. I can’t decide whether that’s a bottle of alcohol or aftershave in his hand.

Either way, he’s clearly been drinking it.
