Konstantin Stupin: biography
The musician was born in June 1972, in the family of a military employee. It happened in the city of Orel, where Constantine still lives.
At school, he was a real hard-hitting bully, but,thanks to the rolling bass, the guy was taken to the school ensemble, and he became a full-fledged performer. In addition, from this small team, Stupin was able to form the Night Cane group. This name was chosen quite by chance. He was influenced by the film, viewed by a talented musician.
Konstantin Stupin, whose photo reflectsthe state of his soul, did not get on with his studies all the time, even from a vocational school a young man was expelled because of a permanent absence of classes. He did not even serve in the ranks of the Soviet Army.
The young talent was noticed and picked up on time. The bustle of sponsors helped the guys from Orla to perform in the capital at the festival. And it happened in 1990. But the performance of the regional musical team almost broke. Its participants were completely drunk, but the jury heard the songs that they performed, and gave the children a chance to rehabilitate themselves in their eyes.
Drugs and prisons
Konstantin Stupin, whose biography did not promisehe did not feel good, yet he was able to restore his spirit and continue his musical career. This was not stopped even by drugs. But let's talk about everything in order.
After performing in Moscow, the musician decides to feel the effects of heavy drugs. It is worth saying that he used marijuana earlier, but it did not create that pleasant effect, as before.
It so happened that law enforcement officers found stashed narcotic substances at Stupin. This was the reason for his first imprisonment.
The second time the guy was put behind bars because of the theft of vehicles. In total the musician spent in prison for nine years, which could not but reflect on his work.
In the intervals between rest on bunks Constantineattempted to revive the former team and actively participated in local festivals. In those moments when the participants of the "Night Cane" came on stage, everyone froze and quickly filled the space in front of the stage, abandoning all their business. But this creativity did not bring income, and besides music, the talented poet could not do anything, so he often went to robbery.
Last imprisonment for the frontman of the "Night Cane" ended in 2013, after which he was no longer able to revive his native band and began his solo career.
Informal "highlight" of the performer

These were actions that would be considered out of the ordinary in a cultural society. But this was the informal highlight of the artist's work. And fans of the group perceived it as a tribute, they just came to delight, despite all the indecency and inconceivability of the musician's actions on the stage.
Some of Stupin's compositions, despite hisprescription, sound very good even now. The end of the group's activities upset many of his fans, but they say that the man is not going to forever forget about his work.
