VLADIMIR VYSOTSKY (1938-1980) was an iconic bard, poet and actor. His popularity as both writer and performer were enormous and virtually unparalleled during his lifetime, as his works were rich in social and political commentary, despite the stultifying censorship of the Brezhnev era. He died young, of a heart attack believed to be drug induced, and his death received only a short obituary in the papers, but his funeral filled the streets of Moscow.
