|It was the summer of 2003 and MP3.com's active message board community was heating up as well -- with flame wars.
Along came Chaz Fanaro, looking to cut through the negative noise. He began to interview many of the musical artists who pitched a tent on the popular indie music forum. Others pitched in with questions of their own. July of 2003 could have turned ugly, but thanks to the interviews blanketing the forum, it became a home for insight and mutual respect.
The forums were wiped clean by Vivendi in December, 2003. The interviews live on.

The musical disease started in 1979 when Vitaly learned three chords on a beaten guitar. In 1980 he decided that he can also compose songs, not worse than the others. A year after the first band project started. They were at least four - none of them at the professional scene, and only popular in their own town district. Times were flying, and the disease soothed down in 1992, when Vitaly managed to release his first audio tape made in studio. Before that time it was all about pop and rock. The symptoms renewed with the Internet boom. Vitaly started publishing his own instrumental remixes in 2000 and regained some narrow but cosy audience. In 2001 he released his first CD under a symptomatic name - "The Old Album". The music presented here is mostly from this release.

Are you playing in a band?
I used to, quite a long time ago. I played guitars, and sang. Now I only collaborate from time to time online with the fellow independent artists.

What are your goals and what do you have planned for your music?
Good point ) - to share my music, to collaborate, to communicate... that in fact means I have no definite goal, I am fond of the process itself.
Just like a 3-y.o. child scribbling on paper - he / she observes the process of scribbles appearing on paper ) not the picture itself.
