A street in Lyon will bear the name of the mother of Jean-Michel Jarre, France Pejot
Jean-Michel Jarre evokes the memory of his mother, the Resistant France Pejot, who will give his name to the future west vault of Perrache.

Wednesday was the birthday of the mother of Jean-Michel Jarre, who would have been 104 years old. France Pejot was born on October 17, 1914 in Lyon.
In an interview with our newspaper about his new album, Equinoxe Infinity , the musician talked about his mom's memory. "I recently learned that the mayor of Lyon had decided to call one of the streets of the city [ed. the future pedestrian crossing of Perrache], by the name of my mother. I am super happy with all of this. It's a funny feeling, but it's extremely moving to imagine that people will live and love each other in a street named after my mother. "
And when it is pointed out to him that this homage has finally been a long time coming, he points out a paradox: "At the same time, between my father, my mother and me, it is she who of us three is the least known, and c she is the one who gave her name to a street in our city. How touching. I think that my mother, in good Lyonnaise that she was, would certainly find that it is not necessary, and even exaggerated. Fortunately, we are not going to ask him his opinion [laughs] ".
