What do you like doing on the banks of the Rhône river?

I really like this spot and the way it's been laid out. I think they've done a good job in its rehabilitation and it's really pleasant. The views are cool and I often come here in the evenings.

During the day, I also like to come here and have lunch. Moreover, for the pleasure of playing my guitar here. Usually, you'll find plenty of people about in the early morning or even the late afternoon. People often come over to see us, probably because this is a perfect area for meeting people. We generally meet here and stay for an hour or two before moving on to somewhere else. And usually people will come over to see us, asking us to sing some song or another. In short, it's fun.


When is the best time to come for a stroll along the river banks?

You should come and have a drink on a Saturday or on Thursday evenings. There are always people about and there is plenty to do. And in the evenings, the quays look amazing with the lighting. I think it is a very special place. I had an evening session here the day before yesterday, we were here until three o'clock in the morning, playing the guitar and singing along with people. I love playing outside here, because you can meet lots of people. I don't know what it is exactly, but the atmosphere is just incredible. It is very different from playing music all alone at home in your bedroom.


And, what brought you to the riverbank today?

I came here today because of the fine weather. I don't know why exactly, it's something I just love doing. I  used to go often into town to play just about anywhere. I generally play music with my friends - three or four of us usually get together with guitars and play together. But today, they've left and all of a sudden I've just found myself on my own.
