Singer-songwriter (b. 1958)
He was born Roger Marie François Jouret in Brussels on 27 February 1954, to a French father and a Ukrainian mother. Aged nine, he became the singer and drummer in the Buffalo Scouts Band, a group he formed with some friends from his Scout troop, who performed covers of Rolling Stones songs.
He later formed bands called The Pelicans, Passing the Time and Hubble Bubble, as well as working for pirate radio station Radio Veronica. In 1977, he launched his solo career as punk singer Plastic Bertrand and had an international hit with "Ça plane pour moi". This led to stints as the presenter of television music programmes and appearances in films and music programmes for children. He set up his own record production company MMD, which released several albums for other artists.
In 1997, he was voted “Most Wanted Comeback Artist” in an MTV poll, and his comeback album went platinum. He has continued touring, recording and appearing on television since.
