French songwriter. He started out as a guitarist in the Ray Venura orchestra and moved into songwriting, composing over a thousand songs for Yves Montant, Jacques Pills and Line Renaud along with other artists. His work ranges from romantic ballads to such bouncy hits as "How Much is That Doggie in the Window." His "Battling Joe," was always associated with Yves Montand.

In 1956 he wrote "Pour Toi" which was plagiarized by Morris Albert and named "Feelings." In 1987, after eight years procedure, Albert was sentenced by the American Courts to recompense Gasté for 12,000 copies of the hit song.

Gasté married 8 March 1938 and divorced 22 May 1944. He married the famous actress Line Renaud on 18 December 1950.

Died 8 January 1995, 7:40 AM, Hts de Seine, France.
