Magic (revue pop moderne) (France, June 2002, French)
On issue 62 Lee Hazlewood is listed on the cover as part of this month's content.
It's a 5 pages interview (2 full page pictures included) based on the recent double publication by Labels of the hommage CD 'Total Lee' and the CD 'For every solution theres a problem'. The questions are asked by band members from 'Total Lee' (Richard Hawley, The Webb Brothers, Tindersticks, Kathryn Williams, Jarvis Cocker, Autour de Lucie) that Lee swears he had never heard of and don't-really-give-a-damn about. From this point, it's all about his career and once again his way of turning it very acid and a bit provocative on the subject the old 'the booze, the industry, the money' attitude.
Title: 'Lee Hazlewood, L'école des fans'. This subtitle is a reference to the pupils paying tribute to the master with 'Total Lee'. 'L'école des fans' could be translated into 'Schools for the fans' and it's the exact title of a very popular french show from the 80's, with has been french guest stars invited to a come on up and sing a master's song contest among a bunch of kids. Every kid is there to sing a song of the 'artist' while the rest of the family is in the audience and is always nearly choking with silly pride. It was a Sunday broadcasting.
The pictures: 1. On a full page, Lee with the kids and their moustaches; 2. Lee now, with a cap and his sunglasses; 3. A picture you often see of him on the side making a smile with a droopy face, an open kaki shirt and a quite big golden chain around the neck.
