While he was never taken seriously overseas, Hallyday broke from France's classic "chanson" tradition in the late 1950s, selling more than 100 million albums and headlining 50 major tours.
Hallyday, who was married four times, is survived by his wife of 21 years, Læticia, and four children: two he adopted with Læticia, one from his first marriage to singer Sylvie Vartan, and one from his four-year relationship with actress Nathalie Baye.
