One of France's best-loved rock stars, Johnny Hallyday, was admitted to hospital in Los Angeles Tuesday with an infection following surgery on a slipped disc and is responding well to treatment, his spokesman said.

AFP - Veteran French rocker Johnny Hallyday is responding well to treatment for an infection he developed after an operation, a spokesman said Wednesday.
   
The 66-year-old singer was admitted to the Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles on Monday following surgery on a slipped disc in Paris on November 26.
   
In a short statement released on Wednesday, his producer Jean-Claude Camus said "there was reassuring news about the state of (his) health.
   
"He is responding satisfactorily to antibiotics and the infection is under control," the statement said.
   
Camus told AFP Hallyday should leave hospital in the coming days.
   
The singer is due to resume a major tour on January 8.
