French singer Mano Solo, known for his heart-rending and melancholic melodies, died on Sunday in Paris, aged 46. HIV-positive for many years, Solo's death came as a result of multiple aneurisms.

AFP - The maverick French singer-songwriter Mano Solo, whose socially engaged songs drew on sources as diverse as punk, tango and African rhythms, died Sunday at the age of 46, his family said.
  
His death came after a series of aneurisms. Solo, who suffered from HIV/AIDS, was hospitalised after a concert at a Paris venue on November 12.

The singer, whose real name was Emmanuel Cabut, was the son of the prominent political cartoonist Cabu. He began his career in the punk group Les Chihuahuas when he was 17 but later went solo.
  
He was also a painter and publisher.
