Eddy Mitchell

Claude Moine, better known by his stage name Eddy Mitchell, is a French singer and actor. He began his career in the late 1950s, with the group Les Chaussettes Noires, taking his name from the American expatriate tough-guy actor Eddie Constantine and Mitchell simply because it sounds American. The band performed at the Parisian nightclub Golf-Drouot before signing to Barclay Records and finding almost instant success; in 1961 it sold two million records.
Heavily influenced by American rock and roll, Mitchell has often recorded outside France, at first in London, but later in Memphis and Nashville, Tennessee. Guitarists Big Jim Sullivan and Jimmy Page and drummer Bobby Graham were among the British session musicians who regularly supported him in London. For his American recordings he employed session men such as Roger Hawkins, David Hood, Jimmy Johnson, Kenneth Buttrey, Reggie Young, David Briggs, Charlie McCoy and others.
A great lover of American films, he hosted La Dernière Séance, a TV show about American cinema from 1981 to 1998 on FR3. Its format was like an old-fashioned double-feature picture show, with two movies, cartoons, newsreels, and stage attractions.
