While he was never taken seriously abroad

Yeah, I'm pretty sure nobody here knows who he is.

And a lot of people in France also never took him seriously.

Just becaue YOU have never heard of him, doesn't mean nobody else has... That's rather a gratuitous sweeping statement...

Good on him for being the French #1 Rock star! What an achievement.

Doesn't matter if he wasn't know elsewhere around the non-French speaking World. He was simply Successful at what he did, and people enjoyed what he offered - there's not that many who can claim the same.
