Buinova father

Father - Buynov K 1 Nikolay Alexandrovich (1911), from the family of the “dispossessed” blacksmith Alexander Buinov, the owner of one of the two forges that existed in the city of Efremov in those years, was a pilot and master of sports in skiing and parachuting, shooting and football , in classical and free-style wrestling.

A military pilot, later a war hero, retired from the army with the rank of major. On the lapel of his jacket he always wore only one order - the Battle Red Banner. After the war he graduated from the Institute of Physical Culture and began to teach physical education and military science in schools and institutes. One year I had a chance to study under his supervision, and I saw that the guys literally idolized him. All the exercises - on the bars, on the rings, on the horizontal bar - my father showed personally, even when he was already well over 50. The crown number is a stand on one arm. And this despite the fact that he was seriously injured in the arm at the front (by the way, the fragments were not removed - the doctors said that they should not be touched).

Mother - Buinova Klavdia Mikhailovna (1912) (nee Kosovo), was a musician, studied at the conservatory in piano and graduated with honors. In addition to Alexander, the family had three more brothers - Vladimir, Arkady, Andrey. Everyone received an elementary music education.

In childhood, he lived with relatives for a long time in the city of Efremov, Tula region. In the 1950s, the family settled in a communal apartment in Moscow, in Bolshoi Tishinsky Lane, before Alexander was 8 years old, from 5 years old he went to music school.

An important meeting for Buinov was in his school years with Alexander Gradsky. He made his debut as a keyboard player in the group “Buffoons” created by the Gradsky city, where he declared himself as a composer. He left the group in connection with his departure to the army. He served in the missile forces in the city of Aleisk in the Altai Territory. After being transferred to the reserve, he played in the Araks group, in the ensemble Flowers.

From 1973 to May 1989, he was the keyboard player of the Cheerful Guys ensemble, in which he gained all-Union popularity over 16 years of work. As part of the ensemble, he recorded many popular songs, took part in the festival of pop music "Yerevan 1981", in the international competition "Bratislava Lira" (1985) (Grand Prix).

He participated in the recording of the ensembles “Happy Guys”: “Love is a huge country”, “We need to be friends”, “Musical globe”, “Discoclub-2”, “Wait a minute. ", Magnetic albums" Banana Islands "," Pink Roses ". As part of the ensemble he repeatedly traveled abroad: Germany, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Finland, Cuba.

In May 1989, he began a solo career. Performs with his own group "Chao."

In 2012, he participated in the Battle of the Choirs project on the Russia-1 channel.

In 2011, Buinov successfully recovered from cancer, prostate cancer, without interrupting the concert activity.

Social work

On June 28, 2005, he signed the “Letter in support of the verdict to former Yukos executives.” In February 2011, he stated that he was ashamed of this act.

For me, Khodorkovsky was - like some unknown Ivanov-Petrov-Sidorov - a man from the outside. I was far from both the economic situation and the political. Consider that "fools live in the world." In this case, it was me.

Member of the United Russia political party, member of the political council of the Moscow organization of the United Russia party.

In 2018, he was the confidant of the candidate for mayor of Moscow, Sergei Sobyanin.

For several years he was a member of the Public Council of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the Moscow Region.

Professional music career

A new stage in the creative journey began in February 1993. Alexander led the ensemble "Chao", then becoming its artistic director. From that moment he acted as a singer, composer and director at the same time.

Nikolai Alexandrovich himself, who later named his son in honor of his father, was a pilot, as well as a master of sports in several of its varieties at once.

The mother of the future singer - Klavdia Mikhailovna Buinova, as a girl of Kosovo - was engaged in music. Before marriage and the birth of sons, she graduated with honors from the conservatory, choosing to play the piano as the main specialty. It was Klavdia Mikhailovna who instilled in her children a love of music, which after some time grew up with Alexander Buynov into a full-fledged creative career. Sasha was not the only child in the family: he also has brothers Arkady, Vladimir and Andrey.

Parents not only gave their sons a musical education, but also insisted that their children look like little gentlemen. However, the family lived on Bolshaya Tishinsky Lane, and the attention of the growing up Alexander was soon drawn to the local "punks". A folder for notes, perfectly ironed trousers and an elegant beret - this is how the boy came out of the house. But after a few moments, the beret went to his pocket, the folder went to the armpit, and Sasha himself went to Merzlyakovsky, to the local hooligan.

Once the guys made carbide explosives, but for some reason there was no explosion. Sasha was sent to find out the reason for such a mistake. When the boy approached the bomb, it exploded, and its contents damaged the retina of the eyes of the unfortunate bully. Since then, Alexander almost always wears glasses.

Carier start

In the 60s of the twentieth century, Sasha graduated from music school, having studied there for seven years. Around the same time, Buinov, who sometimes had to be tied to the foot of the piano in his childhood so that he could make music, began his creative career. At first, he played in local rock groups, and while studying in the ninth grade, he even created his own group with his classmates called “Anti-anarchists”.

Alexander Buynov and music

In the early 60s of the last century, Alexander Buynov graduated from a music school. He studied there for seven years. At the same time, the Buinov family moved to Maria Ulyanova Street.

Bizarre and attractive

And just then, the future artist began his musical career - with participation in rock groups, at that time they were called vocal and instrumental ensembles. In the 9th grade, Buynov and two classmates organized the ensemble “Anti-anarchists”.

At the same time, Alexander became interested in hippings and began to go out with friends on Pushkin Square and in the Pit beer hall.

And in 1966, Buinov met with Alexander Gradsky, then a young composer. This meeting radically changed the fate of the singer. He left school and went on the first tour with Gradsky's group. Buinov played the piano. The group received the name "Buffoons."
On December 31, 1971, Buinova was arrested for AWOL.

After there was an army. Alexander Buynov was in the engineering troops in Altai. The part was located in the steppe, and it was eleven kilometers to the nearest settlement. However, for young soldiers this distance was not an obstacle and they constantly ran into the village to local girls.

As for the artist’s creativity, the Buknow group “Skomorokhi” left due to leaving the army. After demobilization, the singer continued to study music, but already in the Araks group. And then he moved to the team "Flowers". From 1973 to 1989, Alexander played keyboards at the "Jolly Fellows". It was she who brought the artist all-Union fame.

The ensemble, along with Alexander Buynov, recorded more than one hit song. In addition, the group took part in various festivals and competitions, for example, “Yerevan-81”, “Bratislava Lira”. As part of the Cheerful Guys, Buynov recorded several albums: Love is a Huge Country, Musical Globe, We Need to Be Friends, Discoclub-2, Magnetic Album Banana Islands, Wait a Minute.

Jaguar scandal

In the spring of 1994, Alexander Buynov suddenly fell into two unpleasant stories at once. One was criminal in nature. The artist saw how, near the house, they were trying to steal his Jaguar (they say that a fan gave him Buinov). The singer rushed after the hijackers, caught up and even jumped into the car. However, he saw the barrel of a gun and decided to leave for the next-best. Buinov Nakhodu jumped out of the car and miraculously avoided damage.

Political Views of Alexander Buinov

In 2005, Alexander Buynov openly expressed his position on the Khodorkovsky lawsuit and signed on to the letter “In support of the sentence by the former head of Yukos.” However, in early 2011, the artist announced that he was ashamed of his act now.

Alexander Buynov. Where love lives

“For me, Khodorkovsky was - like some unknown Ivanov-Petrov-Sidorov, a man from the outside. I was far from both the economic situation and the political. Consider that "fools live in the world." In this case, it was me, ”acknowledges Alexander Buynov.

Children of Alexander Buinov

Children of Alexander Buinov do not communicate with each other. The reason was, firstly, the age difference, as a result - the lack of common interests. But the most important thing is not even that. The fact is that the son Alexei is an illegitimate child and for a long time the father did not know at all about his existence.

Of course, the artist does not refuse help. So, when mother and Alexei lived at the same time in Moscow, Buynov even came to Lesha to attend school at his parents ’meeting.

We must pay tribute to his wife Elena, with whom Buinov had already been married for two years, at the time of the novel. She found the strength not only to forgive her husband for treason, but also to preserve the family hearth.

The son of Alexander Buinov - Alex

The son of Alexander Buinov - Alexey was born in 1987, he is an illegitimate child of a pop singer. The heir to the artist gave birth to a Hungarian, with whom he met on a tour in Sochi and they had a love story.

It is noteworthy that Buinov learned about the existence of his son after twelve years. After the concert, an ex-girlfriend with a child simply approached him and said that it was his son. Buynov immediately recognized “his passion” and prepared for trouble: clarifying relations, demanding alimony for all years. But he was surprised when Alexei’s mother stated that she simply wanted Alexander to know about his own son. It turns out that she almost immediately successfully married, the child called the dad the man who raised him.

Now Alexei practically does not communicate with his father, not because of a child’s resentment, but because he does not know him, considering his father a man who gave him his last name and patronymic.

Alexander Nikolayevich himself says that his son is similar in character to him: he is the same hooligan in childhood, and he loves music as much as Buinov.

Daughter of Alexander Buinov - Julia

The daughter of Alexander Buinov - Julia was born in the second marriage of the performer. When the girl was thirteen years old, her parents broke up. However, this did not affect the relationship of the father and daughter. Alexander helped the family, actively participated in the life of his daughter, they often saw each other.

Now Julia is married, but she decided to leave the name of the famous father so that the clan branch of the Buynovs continues. In 2005, a boy was born to a couple, who was named Alexander, in honor of his grandfather. And a year later, two twin sisters were born - Darina and Sofia.

The famous grandfather doesn’t have a soul in his grandchildren, he tries to spend as much time with them as possible, spoils them in every possible way.

The ex-wife of Alexander Buinov - Lyubov Vdovina

The ex-wife of Alexander Buinov is Lyubov Vdovina, a native of Altai Krai. Young people met when Alexander served in the ranks of the Soviet army. The seventeen-year-old girl was a beautiful brown-haired woman with green eyes. About ten kilometers had to be walked from the military unit to the village, but Buinova did not stop it. He constantly went AWOL, for which he systematically sat on his lip. The couple officially formalized their relationship with the local village council and, at the end of the service, Alexander returned home with Lyuba.

Their marriage lasted only two years. The reason for the divorce was pretty commonplace: they lived in a two-room apartment with Buinov's parents and his three brothers, sleeping in a cot. There was no financial opportunity to acquire a separate living space. Alexander invited his wife to return home to Altai for a while. Lyuba hoped that her husband would settle all the problems and return for her. However, it turned out completely differently. The singer was always addicted to nature and could not resist the temptation, falling in love with another girl. Buinov divorced with Widow in absentia.

It became known that the first wife of the singer at the age of forty-nine years died in a fire. Love went to friends' birthday and stayed there for the night. At night a fire broke out, everyone managed to jump out, except for the Widow.

The ex-wife of Alexander Buinov - Lyudmila

The ex-wife of Alexander Buinov - Lyudmila almost immediately became pregnant by the singer. The young man acted like a real man, considered it his duty to marry a girl. In 1973, a girl was born, who was named Julia.

Alexander and Lyudmila were married until 1985. The singer almost immediately regretted his noble deed. He realized that the child had never kept two people together if one of them fell out of love with his soul mate. The twenty-five-year-old guy had an affair with a woman who was much older than him. It was rumored that she was also from show business, and she also had a family at that time.

In the end, the second wife was tired of her husband's constant campaigns to the left, and they decided to divorce.

Wife of Alexander Buinov - Elena Gutman

The wife of Alexander Buinov, Elena Gutman, is a cosmetologist by profession. They met in the dressing room of the artist, where Lena was brought by her friend. Their happiness lasts for 25 years. Alexander considers the spouse to be his personal guardian angel, whom the Almighty gave him. Of course, like any other married couple, they have quarrels and disagreements. However, over the years of living together, they learned how to solve them, without bringing the situation to any extremes.

Buynov does not hesitate to admit to the camera that he always takes the first step, especially when he is not to blame. He writes letters to Alena, because at such moments she does not talk to him, she is on her knees, begging forgiveness.

Alexander and Elena do not have joint children, but they communicate with Yulia, the daughter of Buinov, and enjoy spending time together with the singer’s three grandchildren.
