by Boule Noire
Kidding around during a session in Alabama with musicians from the Muscle Shoals Horns, George Thurston started loudly singing a tune in French. No one understood what he was saying, but his vocal style was so impressive and dynamic that it led to his first record as a vocalist. Released under his own name as the disco era was gaining steam, "Aimes Tu la Vie Comme Moi?" became an instant club hit in Quebec, and, during a promotional tour, a television host introduced him as Boule Noire. The Nickname Stuck.
