Recently scored a modest hit, "Pattaya Pattaya", where he's actually living.
[b]Compiled part of his autobiography:[/b] (written in 2008, march)
Lou debuted in the late sixties with the song "Mais que fait ma soeur dans la machine à vapeur" (which means: 'what's my sister doing in the steaming machine') in an open song contest in his birthplace Lessines (Belgium).
He travelled all Europe in his free days to find musical "kicks".(was working for the national telephone company of Belgium, RTT and bought even holidays from his colleges)
He had a lot of success in the seventies with his first band, [a14045]
The group was formed in the beginning by two people, [a253947] and [a266373] (well known by the hit [r=606438] of the band [a296490])
The funny percussionist Pipou joined the band later and many hits like "Copacabana, [r=574394] and [r=670399] (1.2 million sold in Mexico) where born.
Lou bought a small house in -at that thime almost unknown- Miami Beach , where he would later become neighbour to [a266349] and Elle McPherson.
During the late seventies he composed and recorded the mega hit [r=375051] but didn't want to bring it on television and find a drummer from a small band of his birthplace named Roger Jouret, renamed for this record as [a67618].
He composed several titles for this artist (as can be seen on [r=615409]) and moved to Jamaica where he formed the group [a234725] , [r=727077] was there first hit.
In a discothèque in the center of Brussels he met Sonia Dronier who became one of the "Bananas" for a while and later assumed the alias [a112881].
By coincidence Lou found the legendary French artist [a5951] in the dressing room, fooling around with Sonia, later the trio became friends and worked together. see release: [r=788133]
Lou had a grave accident during 1996 in Cuba (fell off a balcony at 6 meters height). He revalidated and is still living in Pattaya (Thailand).
