Amanda Lear

Real Name:
Amanda Tapp
Profile:
Born on 18 November between 1939 and 1950 in Saïgon, Hanoï or Hong Kong, to a French-English father and an Asian-Russian mother. She was raised in south of France and moved to Paris to make a career in painting. She became a top model and one of Salvador Dali's muses. She posed as the "lady with the panther" on the famous cover of Roxy Music's album of 1973 Roxy Music - For Your Pleasure. After a brief affair David Bowie advised her to try her luck as a singer. From the mid-1970s to the early 1980s, she was a million-album-selling disco queen, mainly in Continental Europe and Scandinavia. Since the early '80s she has presented TV broadcast in Italy, France and Germany.

People discussing here whether Miss Lear has male genitals or not is totally disrespectful and inappropriate. Also this is nobody's business.
Discogs is a platform to exchange music experiences and discographies and not to discuss such topics.

I fell in love with Amanda Lear nearly a year ago upon hearing the Laurent Wolf Mix of I Just Wanna Dance Again. I bought her first 7 albums on CD as well as her Greatest Hits, Follow Me.

I must say, her voice has a mysterious hypnotic-like quality to it backed with amazing instrumentation

Amanda is also a talented lyricist and co-writes nearly everything she records. A true talent.

I was thrilled when Amanda remixed and re-recorded her old songs. Even though I prefer the originals, the new versions shine just as good.

Amanda's last album Heart did suprisingly well in Europe. Amanda has released 2 CD singles a while back called "Paris By Night" and "Copacabana". Look out for them.

She is also not a man, nor was she one ever. Those were lies, she, David Bowie and Salvador Dali created to give herself more publicity. It worked!

Amanda Lear was said to be born as male and converted to "the other side" before her music career. Well in the end we'll never get to know if these transsexual rumours are true.

Besides she was a great disco vocalist, leaving some milestones in disco history.
