This is a translation from the french wikipedia article. I have also added extra material as i went. This desperately needs more citation and the situation of his death (time/place) is all but missing. I am not knowledgable on the subject of Chanson or Piaf and, outside of a little web searching, all is taken from the French article. Improvement welcome but be prepared to get a book out from the library or alternately: be a French speaker and search L'internet! Thanks. Sillyfolkboy (talk) 01:24, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
