What is the exact meaning, in English, of Quoi ma gueule?

PS. RIP Johnny

That's a tough one to explain and even more to translate.

I'm not a specialist of Johnny Halliday but here's what I think: it is a defiant response that implies that someone objected to Johnny Halliday's face or to what he looked like and he replies by saying basically "what, you got something to say about my face? Go on, say it!".

I am inquisitive and found this page.

"gueule" is normally use for animals mouths. It is also used as a slang term for human mouth or face.

"Qu'est-ce qu'elle a ma gueule?" would be something like "what's so disturbing about my face", but you should find something more colloquial: I don't master English enough for that.
