Yuri Shevchuk is a famous Russian poet and singer. He has a lot of politically engaged songs. He started to sing in 1979. In Soviet Union, his songs were banned by the KGB a lot of times. His songs awaken a strong feeling, it is a call to take active civil position and disobey with injustice. But this man gets easily angry and in the past he had a strong alcohol addiction.
In august 2010 Russian primary minister Vladimir Putin invited several artists to an official lunch in the Kremlin (the Russian government residence in Moscow). When the meeting was started, Shevchuk began to criticize the governance politics. He did not cry or yell, but he said some unpleasant things to the prime minister in a very calm voice. Putin was shocked. He asked “I’m sorry! What’s your name?” So Shevchuk said “I’m Yuri, a musician”. It was a very emotionless answer.

For example, a few days later Bono invited Shevchuk to sing with him and he did not ask “What’s your name?” Actually at the Moscow concert Bono sang fist verse of “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” and then he said “Probably, You know this man” and asked Shevchuk to singing this song with him.



So Shevchuk has a low EQ, hasn’t he? Or maybe he’ll be next Russian president.
