Boris Grebenshikov in Concert, New York City
Written on Sep, 27 2017 02:09
Boris Grebenshikov, born in St. Petersburg in 1953, is the " founding father" of Russian rock. He is known nation-wide in Russia as B.G. and he and his band “Aquarium” (active since 1972) are a household name in Russia. He started in the 1970s with a Grateful Dead-like cult underground following, and his prolific career has seen him dubbed as Russia’s Jim Morrison, Russia’s Bob Dylan, and Russia’s David Bowie. And Aquarium itself can be compared in influence and popularity to the Beatles. Aquarium was immensely popular throughout the Soviet Union, but were still limited to playing at underground clubs and private gatherings and were not allowed to record in professional recording studios.
