The group has existed for almost 30 years. During this time, many times to change the composition of the group “on-On”: someone decided to link their lives with the teaching of music, someone just tired of the world of show business. “StarHit” remembered the brightest team members.
While in 1989 the whole country watched on TV the series “Slave Izaura”, the brilliant Bari Alibasov has created one of the most successful projects of the Russian show business group “na-na”. In the 90s, they gave more than 900 concerts a year, which is about four or five speeches a day. The fans were on duty near the houses, hotels, and were glad for even a glimpse of the musicians.
“I myself am a witness as to Volodya Natalia Politov – there was a queue of fifty girls. Which was on duty around the clock. He came out, pointed, and said, “you, you and You” and they followed him” – said Alibasov.
In this group there was always a prohibition – none of the soloists could not advertise personal life, for fans they should always be unmarried and desirable. And any sexually transmitted disease was considered a work-related injury and are paid additionally.
In the early 90-ies formed the “Gold membership” of the group: Vladimir Levkin, Vladimir Asimov, Vladimir Politov, and Vyacheslav Zherebkin, the last two still are part of the “on-On”. How did the lives of ex-soloists of the legendary boyzbenda?

Before the advent of “on-On” Asimov fried chicken in the cafe at the Kursk station of Moscow. Knowing that Alibasov has announced a set of “na-na” singer went to the audition. It took, however, was not originally in the main and reserve team, which was engaged in the Chas. But after about six months, Bari Karimovich suggested Asimov become the fourth member of the group.
Since 1998 Vladimir engaged in a solo career, released three albums. About leaving “-” the singer announced in March of 2003. After that he confessed that for a long time led a double life.
“On stage, I was a Casanova and a don Juan, and then hurried to his beloved family, – shared the artist in an interview – I even had two apartments – the first in the same building with office, Bari, decorated in ultra-modern bachelor style, and in the second lived the wife and the son of Simon”.
Along with Asimov’s family moved to Spain, Alicante.
“I was at his home. Them with Tanya a beautiful house on the Costa Brava, said “StarHit” producer Bari Alibasov in September last year. – Doing business…”
Vladimir did not give up the work, and recorded songs in Russian and Spanish, was produced by shooting videos. But the priority is always his son, his upbringing, education and career. This year Simon was twenty-two years. He is seriously engaged in sports, managed to play to Shine in one of the videos father.

A few years ago, Vladimir Asimov had a serious operation. For a long time, the singer complained of pain in the neck, after a series of tests, the doctors diagnosed a hernia of the cervical spine. Needed surgery, but doctors could not give assurances that everything will be perfect, most of all they worried that because of possible complications Vladimir no longer have a voice. Neurosurgeon clinic Hospital Clinica Benidorm worked with Azimovym four hours. Despite all the difficulties, the operation was successful. After several months of REABILITACII Vladimir returned to normal life.
With former bandmates Asimov communicates rarely.
“No, I do not feel nostalgia for the “on-On”, – admitted the singer in an interview – When he left, I thought that we will maintain a relationship after 12 years together they lived and worked. But time is prioritized differently. “Nanai” own life, I have mine. Well, congratulate each other happy New year and happy birthday.”

Alibasov has placed a newspaper ad for the group to audition, attended by hundreds of people. Including Leonid Agutin, in recognition of Bari Karimovich, he didn’t because he was already an established musician. The only person out of the crowd chose the producer was Vladimir Levkin. The singer left the band in 1998 when the contract expired with the production center Alibasov. According to the Bari Karimovich, leaving Levkin received the gift of the car Mercedes and an apartment in the center of Moscow on the old Arbat.
By the time Levkin finished a correspondence course in GITIS, began a solo career – recorded an album “Steps to themselves”, continues to write poetry, in the late 90’s, a TV presenter… All went well. Levkin but soon found out he had cancer, his girlfriend left… the Treatment lasted one year, as later admitted the contractor.
“Friends were seriously preparing an album of memory, saying that I’m not a resident, recalled Levkin in an interview. But I wasn’t going to leave! Internally kept telling myself, “No wait!”. Joined the body’s defenses to live against all odds, to cling to life.”

After his illness he continued to study music and found a new business: he started to organize charity concerts and events. Becomes Director of cultural Affairs and sport of the Russian public organization Union of social justice of Russia.
And soon met his wife, Mary. She worked as casting Director on one of the channels and, as it turned out, was a long-time fan of Levkin. In the early ‘ 90s, she and her parents lived in Izhevsk, all girlfriends would lie in wait for “on-On”.
“I have for him no interest, he told Mary in one of the interviews, We came to their concert and everything changed! When I saw the smiling blond Levkin – gone! Back home in complete euphoria and told her mother: “I will only marry Levkin!”
And so it happened: her childhood dream came true – she became the wife Levkin March 3, 2012. Fate sent a couple test – cancer is back. But Vladimir was not going to lose heart – because he was waiting for the birth of his daughter. Despite the pregnancy, Mary spent a lot of time at the cancer center with my husband. And he again managed to overcome the disease.
A couple of years ago the couple moved to his country home.
“In the morning go out on the porch with a Cup of freshly brewed coffee, sit in a comfortable chair and enjoy, – has shared with “StarHit” Levkin. – A few months of communication with the realtor and we chose the site near the Novorizhskoye highway in the West of the capital.

Later, the singer admitted: “It’s not such a love, from which blows the doors. We have a real family, we appreciate and love each other, almost never parted. Rest together, lifestyle, home improvement – all done together. My life went on like it was made of two halves. In the first group and work: a priceless experience that cannot be overemphasized, a huge success, club parties, women, alcohol , the first failed attempt to start a family… so Many mistakes and sins to atone for will have the rest of your life… As they say, passed the fire, water and copper pipes. Sure, I learned from their mistakes. In the second half – the family, the realization that there is a chance to start over, and, most importantly, it’s understanding how to survive in the turbulent flow of the Russian show-business, how to be self-sufficient, in demand artist and to represent their creativity. It was important for me to come around to the idea that I must create my own destiny, to get rid of bad habits, to leave behind the idea that everything for you will take care of always thinking producer.”
In late 2008 the singer released the first single “Faithful” has become a frequent guest of radio and teleperedach. A few years later the artist decided to pursue higher education.
“Recently he entered the law, – Sokolov told reporters in 2013, On exams happens every. For example, arrive as a teacher – ten years younger.

In the beginning the group “on-On” were not a boy band – then the soloist of the team was Marina Khlebnikova. Which has already several years of work with Alibasova.
“I arrived in the city of Saratov, it was my first tour, recalled the singer history Dating Bari. – In hotel “Volga” go to your room, and there at the window is broken glass and a broken door. Went down and asked to be moved. I was sent to another, come, and there are someone’s suitcases. I checked, and then the two men and begin to gather my things. Ask them: “would you hurry up! I have tonight’s concert, I’m a singer!”. The evening was made, and after the composer Alexander Moskvin brings me to the man and said, “Marina, meet the head of the group “Integral” Bari Alibasov, look up and see that this is the man I kicked out of rooms”.
Following the presentation, the producer offered Khlebnikov to work together and she agreed. In the spring of 1989, Bari Karimovich has created a “on-On” Marina continued to go on stage in the new group. But it didn’t last long – 1990 Klebnikov began a solo career. She was the best at many international music competitions. And mega-fame came to the Marina in 1997 after performance of the legendary “Cup of coffee”.
Privacy Klebnikov carefully concealed, for example, only after the fact became known that she was married to businessman Mikhail Maidanic. Besides the singer for a long time managed scriptfragment daughter Dominica.
My husband and Marina were separated in the late 2000s. But many years later it was registered in her apartment in a residential area in the South of the capital. For a long time Klebnikov just didn’t see Michael. Lost him and the creditors. “He disappeared with my money, and I have already resigned – admitted “StarHit” in 2014, Iosif Prigozhin, which an enterprising businessman borrowed $500 thousand – I couldn’t find him – and no one will find!”
Some familiar Milanich convinced that he simply changed his name and perhaps appearance, therefore, lives happily ever after.
“My mistake was that I brought it into their sphere of activity. – recognized Khlebnikov Andrei Malakhov in the air, “Let them talk”. – He released the album “Cats of my soul”, and I have not received a penny for it. Neither sleep nor spirit did not know about. When I saw then, some individuals and banks he took loans! And then comes the article “Husband Khlebnikova stole Prigogine 500 thousand dollars. I approached him, I’m afraid not a penny of this money did not see!”
