Artist story

Born in 1920, Boris Vian (aka Vernon Sullivan for its most sulphurous pounds) joined the Central School in 1939 and became an engineer in 1942. In 1954, he began singing in the Trois Baudets theater and will know a great success with his books and songs. Trumpeter, composer, performer, jazz journalist and surrealist genius writer, he launched the first rock songs in French with Michel Legrand, Henri Salvador and Jacques Canetti. He died of heart disease June 23, 1959, during the private screening of “J’irais cracher sur vos tombes”.
