1976 ... the first steps of a little unknown man who will simply become one of the greatest composers of this end of the 20th century on the French side. Difficult to imagine at this stage what awaits him ...
1977 ... for the moment, it's very nice but it is clear that there is still work. Let's be patient ...
1980 ... then comes THIS title. He simply signs here one of the most beautiful ballads of the decade and of this end of the XXth century quite simply on the French side. THE huge title that will really reveal him and that will unleash a truly extraordinary talent
1981 ... a new ballad my faith very sympathetic but which does not equal the previous title. An inspiration that fluctuates with the years ...
1981 ... we find here a level of inspiration which corresponds to him much more. He confirms, title after title, a potential really above average ...
1982 ... a very pretty Elsa and an inexorable rise in power. As paradoxical as it may seem, it is for others that he will produce some of the most emblematic titles of the 1980s ...
1983 ... another XXL class ballad of which he has the secret. But his style is too typical "70s" and faces a competition which, her, is from the 80s !
1985 ... another sumptuous title which once again shows the artist's outstanding talents as a composer. MA-GIC !
1986 ... an inspiration that never falters from an Iota. It's just a shame that he remains confined exclusively to the Intimist register while he is going to write Dance hits that are among the most emblematic of the 1980s for others
1989 ... the tempo finally accelerates and finally foreshadows large-scale Hits Dance to come. See you the next decade !
1990 ... the huge title which will make this ephemeral duo one of the most famous of the decade on the french side. All good little guys !
1990 ... the duo of shock repeats and produces this second hit which will be the subject of one of the biggest parodies of the Inconnus
1991 ... the famous parody in question. A pearl of the Inconnus as they knew so well how to produce them during their delirious shows. E-SSEN-TIAL !
1991 ... the ultimate title of the 2 accomplices. A duo of a formidable efficiency and which will really have been one of the outstanding phenomena of this crossing of decade
1992 ... new duo but this time charming, on a nice ballad which works my faith very well once again
1993 ... a new demonstration of an inspiration which is constantly regenerating and which produces, decade after decade, surely what we do best in terms of Intimist ballad. Unfortunately, this will not allow the singer to get back to the lead pack ...
