From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Serge Teyssot-Gay (born on 16 May 1963, in Saint-Étienne, Loire) has been the guitarist of French rock group Noir Désir until November 29, 2010.[1] He met the frontman of the band, Bertrand Cantat, at their school in Bordeaux (Lycée Saint-Genès) during the 1980s. Aside from Noir Désir, his other musical endeavours include :

  • the trio "Zone Libre", which became a quintet for 2 albums and tours.
  • the guitar-oud duo with Khaled AlJaramani known as Interzone.
  • works with writers : music and literature
  • He has also released two solo albums "Silence Radio" (1996) and "On croit qu'on en est sorti" (2000)

At the beginning of his music career, Serge favoured the use of the Gibson Les Paul guitar. However, since the release of Noir Désir's 1996 album 666.667 Club, a custom Fender Stratocaster closely resembling the Lite Ash model[2] has become his most frequently used guitar. His brand new one is a Meloduende model "Black Sword".
