David Lister: The Week in Arts - Would you keep your Elvis moment a secret?

You can't help feeling sorry for the French, and admiring too. For nearly 50 years they have been waiting for a French international singing star to emerge, so that the rest of the world can bow down and worship. It used to happen in the old days.
