Thursday April 28, 2022, Yves Bigot went to the set of It’s up to you to evoke the one he rubbed shoulders with and on whom the book is dedicated “Michael Berger“, released on Friday, March 18. If the pianist knew himself with heart diseasehe did not wish to consult a doctor before his death, as revealed by the director of TV5 World : “He always had three or four projects at the same time, plus two or three more in advance. The idea of wasting time getting treatment, or even possibly being arrested, did not fit into his plans at all.“.
Yves Bigot on Michel Berger: “He was under incredible pressure”.
At the time of his death, Michel Berger knew a real turning point in his career and was on several big projects. Indeed, Yves Bigot recalled: “There was this duet album with France Gall. The tour was scheduled for the fall. And there was the presentation in London, when he had been working on it for almost 20 years, of the English version of Starmania“. For Fabienne Thibeault, who collaborated with the artist, her many disagreements with France Gall would have caused great anxiety in him.
Finally, Michel Berger knew “a parallel love story, which complicated things“and above all had to deal with the illness of his daughter Pauline, who was cystic fibrosis and who knew she was going to die soon. Finally, Yves Bigot explained that the interpreter of A few words of love “was under absolutely incredible pressure“. It’s probably this pressure who is responsible for his heart attack and his death, five years before that of his daughter Pauline.
