Fred profile 2

Fan since 1985, I discovered Madonna through one of my uncles who was a DJ and who played regularly the title “Holiday” in clubs. I finally succumbed to her charm during an English class in which we studied “Crazy for you”. Like many fans I collect her records, as well as all the magazines where she’s on cover. However, with the profusion of articles that have appeared in nearly thirty years, I can now bring myself to collect only the beautiful covers and rare or promotional records.

In 1987 I went to see her for the first time in Paris (Parc de Sceaux), it was a true revelation, stage presence and magnetism literally grabbed me. Ever since I can not prevent myself from going to see her many times when she’s on tour…

I always wanted to share my passion with other fans, that’s why I participated in the development of French fanzine “Spotlight” from 2001 to 2007. Then I realised my dream of writing books. I began with a book on all of Madonna’s live performances (Madonna On Stage), then I developed the first trilogy that discusses her discography (The Eighties, The Nineties & Millenium). Since then I published many other books in collaboration with photographers (like “A Portrait of M” by Curtis Knapp) and “Madonna – The Scrapbook” (a book of which I am very proud).
