METALLICA – HEAVY METAL MUSHKETERS

Fans of the legendary Metallica are so dedicated and uncompromising that they can be compared to religious adoration. Legends circulated about their booze during the tour, and journalists called the group “Alcoholic”.

Among all this confusion bordering on lawlessness, the group received its share of deprivations and tragic events – car accidents, death, broken limbs, burns. These events were a test of strength for the group. They survived and became the gold standard of heavy metal, playing “honestly and selfishly” in the apt expression of frontman James Hetfield.

From Danish Origins
It all began in small Denmark, where Lars Ulrich, the drummer of Metallica, was born. Since childhood, keen on tennis, he became the champion of Copenhagen among juniors and simply could not imagine any other way until by chance he heard the legendary Deep Purple, being at their concert. By that time, the parents decided that their son is better to play tennis in America and moved there from Denmark. A tennis racket was thrown into the closet once and for all. Drums became Ulrich’s new passion, and music did its job. Continue reading

ABBA – A POP-PHENOMENON OF THE XX CENTURY

Agneta Feltskog, Bjorn Ulveus, Benny Andersson, Annie-Fried (Frida) Lingstad. What are these names talking about? Often about nothing. But if you add the first letters of the names, you get … ABBA. This abbreviation says a lot and a lot. Yes, 4 Scandinavians turned the whole world with their songs. And this is not an exaggeration.

ABBA were the first representatives of continental Europe to win first place on the charts of all the leading English-speaking countries.

Benny and Bjorn
Benny Andersson was a keyboard player for the popular Swedish pop group Hep Stars in the second half of the 1960s. They performed remakes of international hits. The band’s strength was their live performances with spectacular shows. Fans of the team, or rather fans, were mostly girls. With full right the group was called the Swedish The Beatles. Benny Andersson played the synthesizer and gradually began to write original compositions, many of which became hits. Continue reading

Yves Montand. WOMEN OF HIS LIFE

Yves Montand took everything from life that she gave him. He was devilishly jealous. In rage, he could say a lot of superfluous, but, having calmed down, to find and pronounce the necessary words so affectionately and passionately that his beloved forgave him. They adored him for the seething frantic energy in movements and gestures, for the eyes radiating radiant light, for the tonality of his beautiful voice, for the gentle and strong hugs that give rise to the passion that turns the soul and pierces the heart.

Or did you choose?
Ivo Livi was born on October 13, 1921. He began working at age 13 as an assistant hairdresser, and then as a docker in the port. He performed as a singer in small variety shows and restaurants, and then in the Parisian Folin-Berger and Moulin Rouge.

At the age of seventeen, Ivo Levy first appeared on the stage under the pseudonym Yves Montand. Singer Yves Montan (“Montan” comes from a phrase in the peculiar Italian-French dialect “Willow, Montage” (“Ivo, go home!”), – so his mother called him home in childhood). Yves’ parents were wary of their son’s occupation, but 50 francs a week were a convincing argument for continuing their singing career. At the end of 1938, Ivo first performed songs in a movie theater before the start of the show. Continue reading
