Dédé Fortin's death... 10 years today

Watching Musimax, I realized it's been ten years to the day that André Fortin committed suicide in his appartment in Montréal... I was too young to remember his death, but I have been a fan of his and Les Colocs since elementary school... he is a big part of Québec patrimoine, he is still missed.

RIP Dédé

I remember being a little kid and thinking 'tassez vous d'la' was a hilarious song. Now i know what it means and I still think it's a hilarious song. RIP

So he didn't die? Nice, I guess I'll commit suicide too if it doesn't involve death

Keep the classless comments outside this thread guys. There`s nothing funny about someone`s death.

R.I.P. Dédé. It was a sad day when you left everyone and we shall always remember you.

never heard of him or the band...then again i dont hear too much french music here in Ontario on the radio or otherwise...

i stopped following french music when i was a kid...and that was in the time of Vanessa Paradis and Mitsou....

the closest of anything i've heard 'lately' is some french young girl thats a blond that sang something that made it into a commercial...i think it was some phone commercial

Mais j'suis heureux parce qu'au moins j'meurs l'esprit tranquille
J'vais recommencer mon autre vie d'la même façon
J'vas avoir d'l'instinct, j'vas rester fidèle à mon style
L'entente parfaite entre mon coeur et ma raison

L'harmonica c'est pas un violon, c'est pas éternel
Et pis ça pleure comme si c'était conscient de son sort
D'ailleurs à soir je me permets de pleurer avec elle
J'attends un peu, chus pas pressé j'attends la mort


André Fortin - Dehors Novembre (1998)


His death left a gaping hole in our musical scene. Rest in peace.

No offense, but why would you bother writing a post like this? You're in a tribute thread for a musician who was well respected by many...

Anyways, RIP Dédé.

Haha, yeah you made it but i remember tricolore posting in it. I'm really a big metalhead. Melodic death is probably my favorite genre, but I'll listen to anything that's good. I listen to cowboys fringants (plus rien is on my WMP right now), Ratatat, Daft punk, Led Zeppelin, some RHCP.

You can say what you want about Dédé, but he was a great writer, and the music by Les Colocs carries a lot of meaning.
