Claude François naît le 1er février à Ismaïlia, en Égypte, d'un père français et d'une mère italienne, tous deux nés aussi à Ismaïlia.
C'est son arrière grand-père, Joseph François, né en Lorraine, au pied du Ballon d'Alsace, qui s'est installé en Égypte. Il y épousa une Française issue d'une famille protestante originaire du Chambon-sur-Lignon.
Son père, Aimé François, occupe un poste de direction du trafic dans la Compagnie du canal de Suez. Une enfance heureuse dans un milieu bourgeois.
Le président-colonel Nasser nationalise le Canal de Suez : les Français sont contraints de quitter le pays. Claude François a 17 ans.
Il se trouve propulsé du jour au lendemain dans le monde des adultes. La famille François s'installe à Monaco. Son père sombre dans la dépression et meurt. Cette année-là, c'est son premier succès : Belles, belles, belles. Claude François achète un appartement à Paris, 46 boulevard Exelmans, dans la salle de bain duquel il s'électrocutera 16 ans plus tard. On his own, the boy learned to play the drums. A young Claude found a job as a bank clerk and at night earned extra money playing drums with an orchestra at the luxury hotels along the French Riviera.
With a good but untested singing voice, he was offered a chance to sing at a hotel in the fashionable Mediterranean resort town of Juan-les-Pins.
While working the clubs, he met Janet Woolcoot, an English dancer whom he married in Ambitious, Claude François moved to Paris, where there were many more opportunities to pursue his career. At the time, American Rock and Roll was taking hold in France and he took a job as part of a singing group in order to make a living. With the goal of eventually making it as a solo act, he paid the cost to record a 45rpm.
In he followed the first success with another French adaptation of an American song.
This drawing has remained very famous until now. Performing in sequined suits, François gave high-energy stage performances that had hordes of adoring teenage fans racing to the music shops to purchase his latest record or lining up to buy a ticket for his shows.
In he headlined at the Paris Olympia, a sign that he had arrived. At the end of that year Claude François created original new dance steps and Michel Bourdais drew them. For the first time, they brought up the idea of setting-up a show with female dancers. In January , while returning from a trip to Las Vegas, Claude Francois fascinated by the American shows decided to take them as a model and eventually the project of performing on the stage with a female dancer band became clear in his mind.
A dedicated professional, Claude François worked hard to achieve success producing a string of massively popular hit songs and touring constantly. With the onslaught of Beatlemania, he covered their hits in French, adjusted the hair style a little and kept his success moving ahead.
But his talent extended beyond copying the works others had made famous, and he wrote songs for himself and displayed a melodic voice doing romantic ballads.
In , François created a complete new stage act using four female dancers as backup.
In a return to the Paris Olympia he added eight musicians and a full orchestra to his backup dancers, putting on a spectacular show that filled every seat in the large theater and left fans standing in the street for lack of tickets. Divorced from his wife, in he began a relationship with France Gall, another famous French singer.
Their affair was short lived and he soon met Isabelle Forêt, with whom he had two sons in two years.
