“We danced to Deep Purple, Slade and Led Zeppelin” – Medvedev

Russia’s president Dmitry Medvedev, known for his love of rock music, has caught up with the top brass of the country’s rock’n’roll scene.

Medvedev and the musicians enjoyed a relaxed evening at Moscow’s Rythm-and-Blues Café, a jazz club owned by famous rocker Andrey Makarevich.

They also grabbed some beers in a Moscow bar to chat about their favorite music and what is going on in the country.

Medvedev confessed he is more addicted to working than music, while the musicians cracked a joke suggesting that it was Deep Purple songs that led Medvedev to presidency.

Indeed, there may be some truth in it, as it is their music he danced to at school discos.

“It was in the 1970s and 1980s. We listened to various music, but mostly hard rock. I was even a DJ at school discos. Oddly enough, we even managed to dance to Deep Purple, Slade and Led Zeppelin,” Medvedev said.
