The brother of the deceased singer of the Colocs, Dede Fortin, Réal, is exasperated.
Fifteen years after the death of his brother, he regrets that Dede is not remembered when bands play hits from Colocs.
Réal Fortin expressed his irritation Monday at the unveiling of the all programming of the Song Festival of Granby (FICG), which will be in its 48th edition. Several artists participated in the event and some of them paid tribute to him.
“When I see groups doing shows in tribute to Colocs without displaying the name of Andrew, it seems to me a lack of respect for the one without whom nothing would have been possible had he said. Even some former Colocs hide his name, trying all sorts of distractions and camouflage of misleading names of appropriating the work, “reported VAT.
Having big on heart, Mr. Fortin added: “The names of Colocs belonged to Dede and now belongs to his estate. The musicians were Colocs Dede Fortin. ”
The festival work response to the memory of the founder member of the group Colocs on the occasion of its 25th passage Granby with Mass at Dede Fortin, in his memory. Born in Saint-Thomas-Didyme, he died in 2000 at the age of 37.
