Did You Know?
That Jacques Brel knew he was dying is pure fantasy, not to say other words that might easily be deemed offensive. Brel died in 1978 of pneumonia while he was cured for a recurrence of his lung cancer. Between 1974 and 1978, after he had surgery on his left lung, he and his woman alone embarked on a round-the-world tour by boat which eventually led them to Hiva Oa in the Marquis Islands where they settled down. In the years that they spent there, he used his private airplane to help the isolated community bringing them goods from the main island, carrying people to hospital visits, and so on. He also managed with his French filmmaker friends to open up an open-air cinema theatre. Not really the moribund life-style. See more
