The True Story Of My Life Written By Myself In Bad English I was born as Anna Gerasimova in Moscow, 19 April 1961, a week after Gagarin's flight; the heroes of my childhood were Gagarin, Fidel Castro, The Three Musketeers and Winnie the Pooh. I loved books and dreamed to become a great writer. I loved singing, too, and attended a children's choir. Playing piano was not my strongest point; several years of training caused a severe allergy for classical music. At the age of 13 I got my first guitar, the cheapest acoustic monster made in USSR, and taught myself some chords. To be honest, my skill hasn't improved a lot since then
