..& of cause

  • JacqueJacque

    He was once a member of the French Resistance
    but spent more time sampling the Calvados than fighting the enemy.

    After the war he found fame as dazzling virtuoso
    of guitar and toured the world with his own special fusion of
    lapin jazz, bunny rock and
    animal magic
    (hence the overpopulation of rabbits throughout Europe).
