Son of the late Johnny Hallyday and Sylvie Vartan, David Hallyday will soon release his autobiography. Indeed, the singer will retrace his existence in a book. The latter will be published Thursday November 23, 2023 in Éditions du Cherche midi. Now aged 57, Laura Smet’s half-brother was convinced by the publisher Jean Le Gall. In fact, David Hallyday wrote this work because he had “the impression that we didn’t know him“. “I wanted to tell the story of how I grew up with parents like mine, in a family like mine. How I was given this gift for music and how this art saved me many times“, he also added in the columns of Figaro. In this book, David Hallyday will notably return to the death of Johnny Hallyday.
The son of the famous singer, who died on December 5, 2017 at the age of 74, attacks Laeticia Hallyday once again in this work. “What an anomaly, what aberration, what madness than seeing his father’s death become a spectacle between two commercial breaks. Nothing, not even the tribute they claim to relay, manages to hide the obscenity of the process“, he wrote on page 237. In fact, David Hallyday had the impression that an intimate moment of his existence had been stolen from him at that moment. As a reminder, Johnny Hallyday’s son launched a legal battle against Laeticia Hallyday, alongside Laura Smet. Sylvie Vartan’s son and Nathalie Baye’s daughter were furious at having been left out of their father’s will.

Death of Johnny Hallyday: his son confides in the relationship that the two musicians had
Still in the columns of Figaro, David Hallyday spoke about his relationship with his father. “There was no competition with my father. Because one of the things that linked us was music and he was not a composer, unlike me who was a producer then a composer before becoming a performer“, underlined the son of Johnny Hallyday. “We proved it. I put myself at his service. And I wrote an album for him (Blood for blood) which was the best-selling of his career. It was a chance for him and for me. The relationship between us wasn’t always easy, but it was honest. My father always loved me. I always felt my father’s love. Sometimes he lost his way and showed weaknesses. But he always loved his children, all his children.” added David Hallyday.
