8. Serge Gainsbourg – Histoire de Melodie Nelson

The polar opposite of the modern PC scrubbed celebrity, Serge Gainsbourg looked like he had just crawled out of bed and stank of sex and stale booze. I was in Paris the day he died and the whole city was bathed in a spooked silence…
Rob: ‘Mental crazy guy that I relate to existentially. Met him in the Columbia Hotel in Ladbroke Grove. He arrived, bought the bar a drink and was amazed that I knew BB etc. I love this album.’
