I'm inviting everybody to check out pretty much the most significant thing I have done so far: Stas & Alex's Magic Night Live - our humble acoustic show. It is divided into three videos for ease of perception and copyright reasons (if someday YouTube changes its policy concerning cover-versions, my songs won't get taken down too): "Here we go: My songs", "Queen Songs", "Grand finale: all the rest we got". All three are in the playlist below.

A little story behind the show and its full tracklist are below the video (click "Read more...")

View from the window of Boeing 474-8 on the way to JapanEverybody loves Japan. Even those who have never been there. I had always been feeling jealous watching documentaries about Queen's tours in Japan. I was intrigued by the fact that Freddie Mercury was so much attracted by Japanese art and culture. The opening of the "Lost In Translation" movie, when Bill Murray is going through Tokyo in a taxi has been ever thrilling for me. Why? Subconsciously, I realized that Japan is very different from any other country in the world. But how? Does the perception of Japan change after visiting it? I decided to write about my first trip to Japan, my impressions and stuff that surprised me the most.
