About Vladimir Vysotsky

About Vladimir Vysotsky - Alexander Gradsky

Write about Vladimir Vysotsky easy. I just had to sing about it in 1980 and later. Despite the strange inhibitions, I stubbornly repeated, like a mantra, line, straining at the culmination: "There willingly crowned a hero, but in the grave first upekut ..."

I noticed immediately - the public did not matter what the song, there is good, there is bad melody, it was important about it! Then, when you can not - it! And who came up with: CAN NOT? It appeared possible. It is possible, as it. To be honest, open, talented. That's why the reaction, almost every one was: "In giving!" Not "how deep" or "no matter how talented, friend!" Or "Yes, of course, he did not inept" and "giving in". And he "gave". By scoundrels and thieves, as presumptuous chiefs and their lackeys, as cowards and traitors. And then the war and the problems of the cult of personality, love and suffering from the lack of freedom, and on all his personal opinion and his own estimation, immediately becoming eyes and evaluation of many.

I often think: here VV of the event to make sure. But it is not, and we (as sadly) do not know how to treat the event, humor is sometimes not enough, there is no one to explain to us ...

All leave this life, but he had gone too early. Maybe time for yourself, for a great poet, but not for us, loving it and wanting to enjoy his art.

He has left us a lot of songs. Songs different: brilliant, talented and bad, but never "no", and for that alone we will retain the name of Vladimir Vysotsky in our enlightened souls they
