18 rare photos of famous Russian rock musicians
Musicians playing rock music more than others seek to convey to the listener their emotional experiences, putting into the songs a lot more sense than pop-performers do. Russian rock originated in the USSR, under the influence of Western rock musicians, about which the Soviet listener did not even know. But at that time the country did not complain about heavy music and the musicians were forced to overcome many obstacles before bringing their music to the Russian audience. We bring to your attention a collection of archival photographs of the legends of Russian and Soviet rock included in history. Unfortunately, many of them are no longer alive, but their immortal songs will forever remain in our memory.
