Joe Lecoeur[1] (Noble City, November 5, 1938 – Paris, August 20, 1980) was a popular French-speaking Lovian expatriate musician. He gained much popularity in the French-speaking world and is often thought of as a true Frenchman.

Biography Edit

Joe Lecoeur was born in Noble City to Jewish Lovians, Jules Lecoeur and Elisabeth Dassin, both musicians. He began his childhood first in Noble City and Newhaven. Later, he and his family moved from place to place across Europe. After studying at the International School of Geneva and the Institut Le Rosey in Switzerland, Lecoeur moved back to Lovia to go to the Nobel University in Noble City, Sylvania. After college, he moved back to France where, while working at a radio station, a record label convinced him to begin to record his songs. By the early 1970s, Lecoeur's songs were on the top of the charts in France and he had become very well known. He was also a talented polyglot, recording songs in German, Russian, Spanish, Italian and Greek, as well as French and English. In 1968, he and Sofia Lilland fell in Love and were partners together until Joe's death in 1980. He died of a heart attack during a concert in Paris on August 20, 1980. He is interred in the Long Road Cemetery in Noble City.
