Les Avions was a French pop rock band formed in 1980 in Paris by Jean-Pierre Morgan. Jean-Pierre played vocals and guitar and was born on January 7, 1959., Jean Nakache (guitar / keyboards) and Jérôme Lambert (drums). The keyboardist Sylvain Pauchard also greatly contributed to Les Avions'albums for the arrangements and programming. The group disbanded in 1997 after an ultimate concert in Moscow on the occasion of the festival named 'Les Allumées'. Their best known song is the hit "Nuit sauvage" in 1986 (#16 in France),[1] but few other singles of the trio also enjoyed a significant broadcasting, such as "Tu changes" (1986), "Noël (tombe la neige)" (1987) and "Tous ces visages" (1989).
