Music producer Joseph Prigogine confessed that he could not believe in death soloist of the group “Tender May” Yuri Shatunov.
According to Prigozhin, he is still in shock from this tragic news.
He called Shatunov a cult pop artist who has remained so for many years.
“I’m just in shock, nothing else … I’m in shock … A young guy, in demand and popular since the 88th year. There are few artists who went (on stage) in 1988 and continued to tour, to be loved. His songs still remain relevant, they are covered by young artists. If among rock artists who remain cult, this is Viktor Tsoi, then among pop artists it is Yura Shatunov. The boy from the orphanage has become a big star, “Prigozhin admitted.
Yuri Shatunov passed away on June 23 at the age of 48, at night, in an ambulance that came to call the artist. Its director said that the cause of the death of the artist was a massive heart attack.
