“Nikolai Yakimov, great and terrible, is here in person. When I saw him for the first time, it seemed to me: wow, he is a druid. As it turned out, he doesn’t only look like druid, but he also treats his guitar like one; he is a real shaman. He is a complicated man (not in the sense of deceit – in the sense of filling creativity), and at the same time – worthy; ignoring him would be a colossal mistake. ”/ Anatoly“ George ”Gunitsky
