    Jon Anderson in Saint Paul de Vence

    Jon Anderson lived in Saint Paul De Vence during 80s.
    He became friend with Marc Chagall and Andrè Verdet, who also were living in Saint Paul de Vence.


    I'm going there next saturday, just for this reason.

    Does anyone can tell me the exact spot where he lived?

    Sorry I am not familiar with this village at all. It's famous I know...I guess you'll have to ask the locals for information about Jon's presence. Some may remember. The problem is that this part of France is very popular with famous/rich celebrities from all over the world and the locals will remember mostly the really famous ones, I mean bigger stars than Jon.

    Not sure you’ll find evidence where Jon lived from the locals. Maybe ask some of the old boys playing boule at the entrance to the town. I would be suprised if he actually lived Within the walls, very historic, small properties built on top of each other around narrowing streets. Very arty but probably not the place for musicians. Suspect he had a villa looking up to San Paul.

    Thank You.
    In fact I've read somewhere that he lived in a farm.
    The treasure-search is getting intriguing....
    If I find it, I'll post pics.

    The local tourist office wrote me that they have no clue about "this singer", but if I know the address, they'll be glad to show it to me on the map....
    Thank you very much but maybe they haven't heard of Googlemap yet!!!��

    I think he was living in Opio, a little village not far from Saint Paul de Vence. You should try there...

    Opio is a different village a bit further away from Nice. Wiki says Jon Anderson lived in St Paul de Vence from 1980 to 1985.

    Jon’s Opio Foundation, that operated during the 90s, used to sell his magazines, t shirts etc so it wouldn’t be a stretch for him to have a connection with the village of Opio, and believe or not, wiki is sometimes not wholly accurate. Visit both if you can.

    Others connections with Opio :
    - "Lost tapes of Opio" : a CD from the Jonbox
    - the track "Concerto Due" from "Earthmotherearth" has lyrics called "Ancient Opionian Chant"

    Re: Jon Anderson in Saint Paul de Vence

    Opio was where Jon first met Chagall, but they both lived in Saint Paul.
    I went there last saturday but I was late and arrived at sunset. I drove along the road which touches Maeght Foundation but there was no possibility to identify where Jon had lived: many villas spread in the countryside. I tried to understand where is La Colline, i.e. Chagall's house, but all I knew is that now it's a private place (maybe an agriturism?).
    So i visited the village at dusk. No way to ask, because la petanque (bowling) was occupied by some sort of market and the famous La colombe d'or and Cafè de la place, where celebrities use to meet, were both closed, as it was the cemetery where Chagall is resting.
    So, the only way Jon's spirit showed up is that the stereo of my car was playing Survival and other stories!��
    I'll post 2 photos of the town as soon as I manage to resize them to the dimension accepted by this forum.

    Roger Waters lived there too, in 1979 while Pink Floyd was recording The Wall at Super Bear.
