My first ruble - Alexander Gradsky

How to make money ... I had something like a performance at the dance, while I was about 13. We were playing at a dance in the school, but not in their own, but simply went to the so-called performance - before it was called "trash ". Received, I think, 30 or 40 rubles, divided at all.

When money was in his pocket, the first thing we bought was a port or dry wine, so from the moment of receiving the money first before they is spent took literally 20 minutes. It is clear that we bought wine, because the state was not in the know how musicians earn their dances. I think that this was the case, because to work, where they receive a salary, I went only later, after graduating from high school. I worked as a loader on "Mosfilm", a porter at the cardboard factory - lugging cardboard bobbin. Then Dad gave me a serious institution as a laboratory test tube grind. But there has been boring. At the same time I still worked in parallel as a musician at the dance.

And then already had a long career in which everything was different.
