In the history of domestic hits, "White Eagle" blended with a crunch French bread in the song "How delightful evening in Russia." Her singing still, like the song "Because you can not" (to be beautiful so). Meanwhile, the founder of the team - a businessman (he was the first performer of hits) Vladimir Zhechkov - admitted: "As I sang, not like anyone, not even my wife. People do a lot because of his complexes. "White Eagle" became my whim. I wanted to sing - sing, I wanted to fall in love - in love, wanted to paint - painted ".
At first, few people realize that the pop artist created a serious businessman who in 1991, together with Sergei Lisowski organized advertising agency "Premier SV", engaged in the development of the media business. A group he and unwound: beautiful videos, loud advertising campaign and yet the intrigue: no one knew the performers in person - they just heard.
In 1999, when the popularity of "White Eagle" off scale, Zhechkov finally appeared on television during the New Year's concert on ORT channel. And soon the band announced a tour of Russian cities. Over the years, the band changed several soloists compositions. the team's popularity over the years began to decline, but the group still exists and sings along with new songs "How delightful evening in Russia."
Zhechkov left singing after a family tragedy in 2002, when she died in a car accident daughter Hope. "My husband always wore a pectoral cross - says his ex-wife Natalya Talasbaeva. - When I got out to the identification, he jerked his neck, as if the chain choked. I tossed in the bushes with the words: "I no longer believe" - and began to cry ... ". With great difficulty, she dissuaded Vladimir suicide. After the death of the daughter of the couple parted, Vladimir, having lost interest in the band, went to live abroad.
