"Serge needed all the love he could get"

"She's performing at a rock festival in the former Roman settlement of Avenches in Switzerland, playing to a half-full, ancient amphitheatre as a warm-up act for Lou Reed and German punk diva Nina Hagen. She plays a set of Serge's songs, scored to Arab-influenced music. For all its eccentricity, it's a beautiful concert and one she has been touring with for a couple of years. Sometimes she sits on the edge of the stage like a little girl; then she's drifting about, kissing her band members and telling stories about Serge. By the end the audience joins in with 'Comment Te Dire Adieu'. I see people crying."
