Vladimir Vysotsky was born in Moscow to a senior officer father of Jewish ancestry and a Russian mother, a German interpreter. In December 1946, his parents divorced. After a few years in the GDR, he returned to Moscow and began an acting career in 1959 and entered the Taganka theater in 1964.
At the same time, he began to compose poems and songs, about people's daily lives and their problems without any allegiance to Soviet ideology. He records his songs and the cassettes will quickly be copied and circulated from hand to hand. These songs are not authorized by the government and the singer will only be able to perform in clandestine concerts. He would have a brilliant acting career, first in the theater then in the cinema.
In 1969, Vysotsky married the French actress of Russian origin Marina Vlady. Thanks to his marriage, Vyssotsky had the opportunity to leave the USSR, to go to France, the United States and Mexico in April 1977, and to record a few records there.
Vysotsky died of a heart attack in Moscow in 1980 at the age of 42.
