among yourselves friends and colleagues call him the "great and terrible." He himself considers himself a super-professionals, who may be foreign stars level Liza Minnelli and Charles Aznavour.

And it's all about him - about Alexander Gradsky recently exchanged "fifty dollars."
- Alexander Borisovich, many gossip in the world of the stage of your creative competition with Joseph Kobzon...
- No competition is not in sight. Just one of your journalistic fraternity once wrote that if I said that no one can sing in our country. Besides me and Kobzon?
- This is - the truth
- I said otherwise: "Apart from me here at all to sing no one can develop? That Kobzon feel the difference?
- What is your relationship with Pugacheva?
- That are such at the moment there is no.
- It is said that you criticize the texts of many of his colleagues...
- The principal difference between my work from others is that I compose vocal compositions on good texts - Nabokov, Eluard, Pasternak, Mayakovsky, Rubtsov, etc. and any group gladly taken even for the most ridiculous captions under certain melody. For me the main thing - the meaning of a word.
- They say that you completely refuse to appear in advertisements, but your appearance is very textured...
- We can do without compliments. I just know how many requests, such as Pavarotti for such recording. I think I'm at least.
- You obsessed fans?
- From such a relationship can not escape artist. In the end, around my name for a long time there is a certain aura of rumors...
- For example...
- What Gradskij not care about the opinion . surrounding
- And you really do not care?
- If I am in the concert will come just two people, I as an artist in front of them a statement. And then you think: what do I do
- You - a good family man
- Now - yes??
- You can ask about the amount of your wives?
- So many times you have been officially married?
- Three. And for the first time the marriage lasted a week and a half.
- It is said that you were the spouse of Anastasia Vertinsky...
- Correctly say.
- it is also said that you fascinate women alone the sound of his voice...
- And my mind what to do?
- you're fighting for your own harmony?
- Trying times.
- What three things in life a man you You think the main?
- And why - only three? They may be twenty three. For a man, the most important thing is, pardon the bytovizma, "worth" of women on his person or not. And if it is - a real man, then this very problem he must solve for themselves every day, from morning to night.
- And you this very problem for myself decided
- Yes, that it does not distract me from my work. Otherwise, life is very hard. With potency - a vital and creative - I have no problem.
- Without which you can not do in life?
- Without singing. This I found by experience, when I realized that I could compose music and write poetry, but it was not the most important for me. Without having to not sing, can not live.
- Your life credo?
- Treasure own professional reputation. She I have no matter, like these things to someone or not. I value my own authority, and try not to drop it. Although the temptation to fall now oh how much! I did not care about, will remember me or not. Hence the sense of responsibility for everything that I do. I would like people to remember the man and artist who could and could sing.
- You at every concert singing "We Were Young"?
- This means that the youth still left?
- I will answer string poet Dobronravova of this song - "youth pushed also immortal." While we sing - we live.
