In the columns of the Figaro, in last march, David Hallyday evoked the battle of her father Johnny against the disease, and confided her fear to see it die.
David Hallyday has lost his father Johnny Hallyday. A test particularly painful as it seemed to already anticipate last march, when the Taulier had confirmed that he was suffering from cancer of the lung. Interviewed by le Figaro on the occasion of his return on stage at the Trianon in Paris, the singer, 51-year-old wanted to be reassuring about the state of health of his father, but said its difficult to see him getting old. “I was lucky enough to have parents young people in their head. They are animated by passions and remain young. But I think that one becomes an adult when one loses his or her parents. It is a little the tragedy of his own life when one loses his or her parents. We become adults and we don’t want to become adult. ”
After having worked with his father on the album Blood for Blood, in 1999, David was also, at this time, the possibility of a new duo and only wanted one thing : to make up for lost time. “I’d like to do. Anyway, we spent too little time together. So the little moments that you can spend (…) I recognise this as the time saved for always. “
The announcement of the death of Johnny Hallyday, which occurred in the night from Tuesday 5 to Wednesday 6 December, David is shown to be discreet, and responded with his sister Laura, in a statement sent to AFP. “Today, we have lost our father. Our pain is immense. Thank you for the support that you bring to us and your messages, which affect us and which are very important for us. “
