"Vladimir Semyonovich Vysotsky (Russian: Влади́мир Семёнович Высо́цкий, IPA: [vlɐˈdʲimʲɪr sʲɪˈmʲɵnəvʲɪt͡ɕ vɨˈsot͡skʲɪj]; 25 January 1938 – 25 July 1980) was a Soviet singer, songwriter, poet, and actor whose career had an immense and enduring effect on Russian culture. He became widely known for his unique singing style and for his lyrics, which featured social and political commentary in often humorous street jargon. He was also a prominent stage and screen actor. Though his work was largely ignored by the official Soviet cultural establishment, he achieved remarkable fame during his lifetime, and to this day exerts significant influence on many of Russia's popular musicians and actors who wish to emulate his iconic status." wikipedia

"Russian actor / singer / songwriter / poet / cultural icon. In his 17 year career, wrote over 800 songs and poems, played in 15 theater productions (including signature roles of Galileo and Hamlet) and 28 movies (including the national blockbuster "The Meeting Place Cannot Be Changed"). His sudden death at 42 caused nationwide mourning. Numerous monuments across Russia are raised in his memory. His importance for Russian culture is hard to overestimate."
