France's biggest rock star Johnny Hallyday has died from lung cancer, his wife says. He was 74.
The singer - real name Jean-Philippe Smet - sold about 100 million records and starred in a number of films.
He was made a Chevalier of the Legion D'Honneur by President Jacques Chirac in 1997.
The French have simply called him "Our Johnny". However, outside the Francophone zone, Hallyday was almost unknown.
