Maksim "Max” Fadeev (Russian: Максим Александрович "Макс" Фадеев) was born on May 6, 1968 in Kurgan, Russia. At the age of 5 he went to music school in Kurgan. Already at 15 he joined Kurgan Institute of Music on two faculties simultaneously: conductor-choir and piano. At 17 he was seriously injured; this was the same time when he wrote his first song, “Dance on broken glass” («Танцуй на разбитом стекле») which was followed by myriads of others. Right then Max thought of artist's career for the first time.
