But this does not mean that if you want, for example, to play heavy, you need to throw away your acoustics and run for an electric guitar.

Strange hobby, escape from home and other facts from the life of the “Prague nightingale” Karel Gott
He was one of the few foreign performers who were listened to with pleasure in the Soviet Union. Concerts with his participation invariably gathered full halls, and the audience sang along with Karel Gott, godlessly distorting Czech words and not at all embarrassed by this. In July, the “Prague Nightingale” celebrated its 80th anniversary, and two months after the anniversary, he informed his fans about his terrible diagnosis. October 1, 2019 Karel Gott left this world.
