Charles Aznavour: Happy 90th birthday to the Gallic golden oldie


SINCE his career began in 1933 the singer has sold over 100 million records but shows no signs of slowing down as he celebrates his landmark birthday.

When Charles Aznavour first appeared on stage in a play at the age of nine Adolf Hitler had just become chancellor of Germany, Ramsay MacDonald was the British prime minister and the average wage in the UK was £3.60 a week.

You can read the whole of my Daily Express feature on the great singer, who is 90 years young today (22nd May), here.

To be quite honest I think he is a bad singer.
His voice warbles as though under water.
