After a heavy fall in his Paris apartment last January, Dave, who had been hospitalized, returned to the stage. For the occasion, the artist confided in the magazine “We Two”.
The interpreter of “Vanina” notably explained that retirement was not for him: “A singer who retires does not exist. Overall, there is no retirement for artists. When you do a passion job, it’s very hard to quit. Hugues Aufray, who is almost fifteen years older than me, doesn’t do it, neither does Line Renaud! The best time is when you’re on stage. After two years without concerts, I am ready. »
If it’s a pleasure for him to go on stage, Dave also does it for the money: “To tell you the truth, most entertainers did not have pay slips until the 1980s. I haven’t put any money aside for retirement. So I have to keep working. »
The one who celebrated his 78th birthday last May even confides: “I have an air hostess friend whose retirement pension is exactly double mine! »
In 2020, Dave had also agreed to participate in “Mask Singer”, there also in particular for the money. He did not hide it: “It is certain that if I accepted this program, it is because it was in full confinement. When we are confined, there is no concert “, he explained during the show L’instant de Luxe for Télé Star.
