Show Business Time

Back in Paris, I started working in the music industry. First as a Roaddy, a Sound & Lights technician for KCP, the company organising all big Concerts in Paris, in "Les Halles de la Vilette", Porte de Pantin in Paris, which gave me the opportunity to work with the biggest international Stars of that time, from America to James Taylor, from The Kings to The Rolling Stones, From Genesis to the Pink Floyd, From Yes to Chicago, from Frank Zappa to Weather Report, from Patty Smith to Lou Reed, from George Clinton to Bob Marley, just to name a few.

In Parallel, with 2 friends, we started Studio Bulle, a recording studio in Montmartre. (1975-1977)

Later on, we sold Studio Bulle and I joined Art & Scene, a company in Arceuil, with a recording Studio, selling and renting Sound Systems. I was the Sound Engineer, recording in the studio and in concert in Tours and Festivals accross France. (1978-1981). Best souvenirs with Trust, Culture, Patriak Abrial, Edith Nylon, Suicide, La Fete de l'Huma, Festival Elixir etc...

Among others, we installed the sound system in the night club "Les Bains Douches" where we were also doing the sound for all the Live concerts.

I was living in Montmartre, the village in top of Paris. Life was a HIT and a Party.
