Jacques Romain Georges Brel was born in Belgium, in Schaerbeek, a suburb of Brussels, on April, 8 1929.
Brel's close friends, including Charles Aznavour, begged him to reconsider his decision and continue his singing career but Brel was adamant that his singing days were over.
Brel returned to Brussels twice in the course of 1976 for medical examinations, but, ignoring the doctors' advice he returned to the Marquesas, in spite of the fact that the tropical climate was most unsuitable for his lungs.
