    Russian artist/bard

    Short time ago I bought a CD from Russian DVD with the bard Aleksandr Gorodnitskij. As I have just started to learn Russian I don't understand a word of it, however I find it interesting to listen to him. It seems as if he has been in the trade for a long time. Can some of you tell me anything about him?

    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.
