Like a stroke of madness...
Thierry Pastor is a French singer who started his musical career at the age of 10 by taking piano lessons at the Conservatoire de Lyon.
Musical training which he will put to good use a few years later in ballroom orchestras with his brother Norbert.
It was in 1978 that everything accelerated when he crossed paths with a certain… Nicolas Peyrac, a leading singer when he offered his talents as a pianist for nearly three years.
This did not prevent him from composing for himself and this is how the enormous hit that launched him solo, "Coup de folie", was released in 1981. Hit in France but also on the Old Continent as well as in Canada.
Dazzling success brought to a halt by an accident from which he will take several years to recover.
The strength to get out of it being stronger than anything, he was reborn from the ashes in 1985 and enjoyed his second hit with the single "Sur des musiques noirs".
Which unfortunately will be his last major success this time around.
To discover or rediscover.

1981 ... a single title was enough to bring the singer One Shot into the musical Pantheon of the 80s on the French side. A title that will undoubtedly remain as one of the biggest dance hits of the decade. CO-LLEC-TOR !
1982 ... from one extreme to the other. After the mega hit Dance, we switch directly to the Intimist register. And why not...
1982 ... the tempo suddenly accelerates again. A sympathetic, rhythmic and playful title, certainly. But that is not enough to regain success unfortunately ...
1983 ... the change of year will not be enough to change the fund trend either. The singer still does not manage to find the brilliant inspiration of his very beginnings ...
1985 ... then, suddenly, 4 years after signing an anthology hit, the singer finally finds a high level of inspiration. Result, new top hit. Who this time will indeed be the last ...
1987 ... a continuation my very sympathetic faith. A style still as light and airy that works perfectly on this track
1987 ... a remarkable participation in this special Boat People Band Aid . Of course, it will not have the impact of an American Band Aid but the result is undeniably up to the task
1988 ... a nice title which literally floats in the air but that will not be enough to make it noticed by the general public. Pity...
1995 ... we find him one last time, and as a duo, for this once again light and airy title. What more could you ask for to end the adventure in style ...
