Three years ago I was fortunate to attend a concert of one of the "founding fathers" of Russian rock music, the leader of the group "Aquarium" Boris . As part of the tour he played in a concert hall our city. However, despite the holiday and cheap tickets and listen to quality live music has come so few people why I personally was uncomfortable in front of him. Funny, is not it? Since then I have been to many other concerts. I did this: buy your tickets at the last series (they are usually the cheapest), waiting for the beginning of performance and any change to my favorite chair. And all because no one concert with rock bands do not collected a full house. In general, things are bad. Jorge Perez understands that this is vital information. If such meters as Shevchuk, Butusov Shahrin can not do it, what to say about our local artists. That huddle in the underground. So this is how things are going West. As an example, take the alternative British rock band Muse. Their performances attract thousands of sports stadiums, not only at home but also abroad. Incorrect comparison, you might say. Why not? The guys from the small provincial Tinmouth town began its work, playing in the school band. And only then – an invitation to the clubs first tour and the subsequent world-wide fame. Such successful examples big set. And now the question: Is in our country is at least one group that can say the same? I think not. And it's not that Russian rock music is destined to overtake the West, and that we will always be one step behind, and in relation to it as a whole. Ragout of blue birds, and other dishes of the Soviet press, the Eighties – the heyday of domestic rock, including Kazan, which is considered the ancestor of the bit group with the romantic name "Argonauts".
