Jarre Repairs Rift With Father
French performer JEAN-MICHEL JARRE and his father Maurice have repaired the rift that has kept them apart for more than half a century.
Maurice, now 82, left France for Hollywood to become a movie composer when 59-year-old Jean-Michel was just five years old - and the pair have had little contact until they were recently reconciled.
Jarre Jr. tells Mojo, "Things are getting better with my dad. It was pretty heavy for a while, but for the last two years things have got better between us. It sounds banal because it happens generation after generation, but I suppose we're just poor handicapped people trying to cope with the past."
