About Michel Polnareff

Known for his eccentric nature, French pop songwriter Michel Polnareff created a buzz for himself in the early to mid-'60s when his debut single, "La Poupée Qui Fait Non," rocketed to the top of the French charts, but it was the early-'70s release Polnareff's that cemented his reputation as a legend in French pop. Polnareff was raised in Paris somewhat as a child of the arts -- his mother, Simone Lane, was a dancer and his father, Leib Polnareff, was a musician who played sideman to many, including (under the name Léo Poll) Edith Piaf. Through the '90s and into the 2000s, he continued to release new material. ~ Gregory McIntosh
