Ah man! Sounds like he was a cool person. Although he "would put the cat among the pigeons," I do not fear him!!

Actually he was a pain in the arse, to be frank.

I can't say that his influence on some of my own comrades in the early 70s was in the end very positive but that shouldn't prejudice me or others to a whole life lived perhaps differently thereafter.

Never met him and heard that he could be ornery.

Regardless, R.I.P. Michel Prigent.
