In our traditional section, the singer tells for whom change cars every three years, where he travels only by taxi and how it captured the current car, that changed the habitual way of life.

Mark got a driver’s license in 25 years, after graduated from two universities, including GITIS. While driving had dreamed of since childhood. “I played with his collection of toy cars, I even had a model of “the Seagull”, which was considered a kind of chic, — says the singer. I also dreamed of becoming a bus driver. Something alluring was to open the doors with one button…” When mark went to driving school, he already knew what car to drive. “Dad’s at work, sold “Lada 2110” colours “wet asphalt”. It’s something we bought specifically for the study, was a pity not to scratch or hit when parked… But I had a very good driving instructor. Thanks to him, I just sat behind the wheel and drove off. And drove very carefully: no accidents, no scratches. While that happen, I would not be upset. I have in this respect, the European mind. For example, in Paris, walk along the sound, and the drivers are not particularly worried if there is a scratch. And we have this mentality that even a small scratch on the bumper — a reason for excitement.

For me, the main thing is nobody hurt”. The second car Brand was the Suzuki Swift, also with manual transmission. Mechanics, according to Tishman, helps to really feel the car. “In recent years, Moscow has changed a lot, became a pedestrian, and I like it. I use a Bicycle or taxi, if you know that it would be difficult to Park. In that sense I’m not insecure. The city changes, and the psychology of people, alas, do not. The man on the machine goes to the center of Moscow to the restaurant through the small alleys. He will suffer to find a Parking spot, not taxis. Although, of course, your car is very convenient, says Tishman. — For me it is and dressing room, and an office and a Studio for rehearsals. My car’s got everything you need: a bag with sports clothes and sneakers, a suit on a hanger — for performances. Was storage drives, but now I listen to music through your phone or USB flash drive”.

Mark says he wouldn’t change the car, if she’s okay. But his father is convinced that it should be done every three years. So the singer appeared Toyota Auris, then a Mini Cooper… “Honestly, for dad it all! says Tishman. Machines I sell are in very good condition with low mileage, because you often use a taxi or service car. And here is where I do a yearly trip in his car — to Murom on the Day of family, love and fidelity. I’m the only artist that never since the Foundation missed this holiday. Driving usually sits my Manager or friend, because as soon as I arrive, I immediately go to act and must be in the form of”. Now Mark has a Genesis, and it is a completely new experience: “my Two last cars were small, quick, maneuverable, has squeezed into narrow spaces. But I said, “mark, what about comfort? You’re an artist and should go nicely” — and advised Genesis. Of course, this car need to travel with the driver. And here I am now a passenger. Never thought I would be so comfortable in this quality! Now I am not worried about Parking on the road behavior of other drivers, and focus only on their business, on their work. In Genesis I like the panoramic roof, comfort seats, perimeter cameras, elegant stereo system with excellent sound and the fact that the cabin is spacious, lots of air. I immediately noticed that my car give way, not undercut, skip ahead. Even hurt: well, you “meet on clothes”! And sometimes the machine becomes a rehearsal hall: put demo and singing and rehearsing. My driver was already used to it, but the people on the street turn around, smile”.
