My first actual wordpress site from the ground up; i.e., not taking an existing theme and tweaking it, but creating a theme from scratch to the graphic designer’s specifications. The really fun additional factor was that the whole site had to be in Russian. The subject, Anatoli Gunitski, is a legend in the Russian music scene known to all as just ‘George’. He was the co-founder of the seminal once-underground rock band Aquarium and has since become an institution as the “Starry (Old) Rocker.” He has created many books of poetry, song lyrics, plays, and newspaper columns and has had a couple of long-running radio shows. The site was a gift for his 60th birthday. Below, after the BD greeting by the Max clan, is an impromptu rendition of Happy Birthday (also in Russian) with Byronius on drums and Lance Tabor on guitar (and some other weird dude trying his hardest to stay on key while articulating all those rolling r’s in Starry Rocker):
QA feedback is welcome. Gotta be bugs. Got it out in a rush.
