Rockers re-tune for film

Musicians make time for Cannes

Beatles and Stones, punks and pop stars and fans of Cole Porter have made their way to the Croisette over the years.

Mick Jagger has become something of the regular on the Riviera, taking meetings for his film company as well as appearing on the social circuit.

John Lennon made it to Cannes in 1971 with wife Yoko Ono to screen the films “Apotheosis” and “Fly,” less than six weeks before he began work on his “Imagine” album.

Bjork made a considerable impression at the 2000 fest, when she won the actress award for her perf in the Palme d’Or winner “Dancer in the Dark.” She said at the time that it would be her first and last film role.

That same year, the male half of Eurythmics, Dave Stewart, made his debut as a director with “Honest,” which starred the girl group All Saints.

And last year’s finale, the Porter biopic “De-Lovely,” was celebrated with a party on the beach and a stage about 100 yards into the water. Soundtrack contributors warbled Porter classics for the thousands onshore in front of a big band.
