Live from the studio, Giya Gagua, actor, impersonator and artistic director of the X-BB Group:
- Most people cannot sing live. Joseph Kobzon, Pugachyova, Leontiev are the ones who can, they are the true masters. Joseph especially, he can sing morning till night, round the clock. No one else can do it like him. It is a Guinness record, I think. Superb!

Moscow will be celebrating its birthday on 5 September. The music for the Gala Concert, which is traditionally taking place on the Tverskaya Square, is being recorded at Mosfilm’s Tonestudio. Young groups such as graduates of the Star Factory and the Yin-Yang Group and young soloists Svetlana Krinitskaya and Igor Monoshirov will take part, and the doyen of the Russian song scene Joseph Kobzon will uphold a long-standing tradition by leading the entire square into the Moscow Anthem.
From L. Yusipova’s article, TV Presenter Leonid Yakubovich: “My 11-year-old daughter does not know who Lenin is but she knows Nonna Mordiukova!”
But I can name actors who have given proof of great courage. Does for instance anyone know that Kobzon has the Order of Red Star for Afghanistan? Joseph got himself into spots no other civilian would ever dare to. He sang throughout ferocious bombing and artillery attacks.

From D. Tishinkov’s article, It’s Just Flying Weather for Some…
Pilot Sergei Simanovsky remembers the war in Afganistan:
- We provided security for Kobzon in Gunduz. He was not happy with the barrack he was to sing in. So he moved to another one. Five minutes later the first one was under a mortar attack. Joseph was immediately almost forcibly bundled into a helicopter and flown back to the USSR. He was fuming but was told firmly: “We only have one Kobzon!”
