Career[change | change source]
He became famous in the early 1970s. Early in his career, many of Higelin's songs were blacklisted from French radio because of his controversial left wing political beliefs, and his association with socialist groups.
He began attracting popular attention through his live concerts, typically held in smaller venues, and released his first solo album, in 1971.
