Serge Gainsbourg needs no introduction…he was often misunderstood and feared perhaps as much as he was loved and admired and recognized as one of France’s national superstar icon. “He was our Baudelaire, our Apollinaire… He elevated the song to the level of art.” said French president Mitterand of Serge Gainsbourg. Provocative, controversial, cynical and raw witted , Gainsbourg born Lucien Ginsburg ( April 2, 1928- March 2, 1991) doesn’t leave us indifferent and his legacy lives on. “ Ugliness is in a way superior to beauty because it lasts!”
There will be a special SERGE GAINSBOURG TRIBUTE at the Hollywood Bowl on August 28th with Jean Claude Vannier and theHollywood Bowl with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra and many key guests artists to bring to life this French icon such as : Victoria Legrand, Sean Lennon & British girlfriend Charlotte Kemp Muhl, Ed Droste, Mike Patton, Zola Jesus and last but not least Lulu Gaisnbourg!
