Patrick Esposito Di Napoli
Early life and education
He started making music in the 1970s, sometimes writing his own lyrics and melodies.
Di Napoli wrote the song "Séropositif Boogie", which appeared on the band's first album in 1993, about living with HIV. He had contracted the virus from a tainted needle. He died on November 13, 1994, of complications from AIDS.
Les Colocs paid homage to him by using pictures of him during live shows. They dedicated their final album, Dehors Novembre (November Begone) (1998), to Di Napoli. It is considered their best album. (The title track, written by lead singer Dédé Fortin, expressed the point of view of a dying man).
