Uil'yam McGaughey, Jr.

 

My zhivem v kul'ture lichnosti. Nekotoryye lyudi neobychayno interesnym. Nekotoryye iz nikh khorosho izvestny. Eta stat'ya Acerca Takiye lyudi, kotoryye zhili vo vremya moyey zhizni i moyey svyazi s nimi, yesli takovyye imeyutsya.

Ya ostanovlyus' na goroda Detroyt, shtat Michigan, i Minneapolis. Pol, shtat Minnesota. YA provel pervyye dvadtsat' let svoyey zhizni v Detroyte, a posledniye pyat'desyat let v Minneapolis-St. Pol. Imeya naseleniye v millionakh, eto bylo maloveroyatno, chto ya dolzhen byl vstretit'sya sushchestvennogo vzaimodeystviya ili lichnogo s izvestnym litsa zhili v VOZ etikh gorodakh i shtatakh. No ya sdelal, i eto moya istoriya.

Ya rodilsya v Detroyte 21 fevralya 1941 goda ya pereyekhal v shtat Minnesota v pervuyu nedelyu yanvarya 1965 goda Na sleduyushchey nedele on budet 2017. YA budu 76 let v fevrale 2017. Mnogo veshchey proizoshlo vo vremya moyey zhizni i ya khochu upomyanut' nekotoryye iz nikh. Khochu otmetit', kto zhil vazhnymi personami Togda, opyat' zhe s osobym vnimaniyem k Detroytom i gorodov-pobratimov Minneapolis-Sent-Pol. Razve ya yakshat'sya s lyubym iz nikh?

Vtoraya mirovaya voyna svirepstvovala Kogda ya rodilsya, khotya on ne byl do sleduyushchego goda, posle napadeniya na Perl-Kharbor, chto Soyedinennyye Shtaty stali uchastvovat'.

Eto proizvol'noye vybor izvestnykh lichnostey v Amerike. Spisok mozhet byt' legko rasshirena na drugiye superzvezdy. No davayte pereydem sosredotochit'sya na vladel'tsev Detroyte (shtat Michigan) i Minneapolis. Pol (shtat Minnesota), gde ya provel bol'shuyu chast' svoyey zhizni.

Nachnite s Detroytom. YA by skazal, chto chelovek s naibol'shim vozdeystviyem na etot gorod byl Genri Ford, osnovatel' Ford Motor Company. Detroyt "Motor City", shtab-kvartira trekh (ili chetyrekh) krupneyshikh kompaniy v avtomobil'noy promyshlennosti SSHA. Drugiye vidnyye deyateli ESTA promyshlennosti by Al'fred P. Sloun, Uolter Kraysler, C.E. Uilson i Dzhordzh Romni.

Kak zhitel' Detroyta v boleye pozdnem pokolenii, mne vypala chest' uvidet' nekotoryye iz liderov avtomobil'noy promyshlennosti-blizkogo rasstoyaniya. YA byl slishkom molod, konechno, vstretit' starshego Genri Ford, no ya videl yego vnuk, Genri Ford II, v debyutantka partii yego docheri v 1961 godu moy otets byl nachal'nikom otdela svyazey s obshchestvennost'yu Assotsiatsii proizvoditeley avtomobiley, a pozzhe vitse-prezident po kommunikatsiyam American Motors Corporation v 1950-ye i 1960-ye gody. Moy otets organizoval dlya American Motors sponsirovat' teleshou Disneylenda. On byl blizkim soratnikom Dzhordzha Romni, oba na AMA i American Motors. Tak chto ya kogda-to znal sem'yu Romni dovol'no khorosho.

V drugom meste, v Detroyte, u nas byl izvestnyy na mezhdunarodnom urovne bokser Dzho Luis, kotoryy stal tyazhelyy ves chempiona. My dolzhny byli Areta Franklin, pevets, Stivi Uander i Dayana Ross iz Supremes. U nas byl Karl Milles skul'ptorov: takiye, kak VOZ i Marshall Frederiks byli svyazany s Krenbruk. Moi odnoklassniki v shkole Krenbruk vklyucheny romanisty Tomas McGuane i Edmund Uayt. YA poobedal i govoril pozzhe Val'ter Reuther With v Putney School v Vermonte Kakaya doch' Royter i moy brat oba uchilis'.

No ya pokinul Detroyt v nachale 1960-kh godov, vo-pervykh, chtoby postupit' v kolledzh v shtate Konnektikut, a zatem provesti god v Yevrope, i, nakonets, poltora goda v N'yuarke, shtat N'yu-Dzhersi, prezhde chem otpravit'sya v Minnesote v yanvare 1965 goda, gde, kak ni udivitel'no, ya ostavalsya Bol'shuyu chast' svoyey zhizni.

Aktsent zdes' delayetsya na izvestnykh lyudey. Charl'z Lindberg vyros v Little Falls, shtat Minnesota. (On rodilsya v Detroyte.) Billi Grem Yego kar'yera nachalas' v Minneapolise. No yest' chetyre cheloveka, shtat Minnesota, svyazannykh s Kotoryye v posledneye vremya dostigli natsional'noy reputatsii stoit upomyanut': Bob Dilan, Garrison Keillor, Robert Blay, i rok-zvezda Prints. YA podkhozhu k ikh obsuzhdeniye s lichnoy tochki zreniya.

Bob Dilan

Bob Dilan zhil v Minnesote, i stal izvesten kak muzykant nemnogo ran'she vremeni. Pervonachal'no iz Hibbing, ya uchilsya v Universitete shtata Minnesota v uchebnom 1959-60 godu, prezhde chem upast', chtoby nachat' muzykal'nuyu kar'yeru. V 1965 godu ya posetil odin iz yego zhivykh vystupleniy v Minneapolise.

V protivnom sluchaye Dilan prakticheski ischezli iz kul'tury i razvlecheniy stseny. YA perezhitok burnykh 1960-kh godov. V etom godu, zagadochnym, kak nikogda, Dilan byl udostoyen Nobelevskoy premii po literature, no ya otkazalsya ot nego iz-za drugikh obyazatel'stv. Kak i mnogiye drugiye, mne bylo odinnadtsat' let ocharovany muzykoy i svobodno myslyashchey lichnosti Dilana, no, po krayney mere v moyey oblasti opyta, ya ischez so stseny postepenno.

Garrison Keillor

Garrison Keillor, VOZ sdelal vypusknik Universiteta Minnesoty (v 1966), razrabotal neobychnuyu kar'yeru na radio v kachestve prem'yer-sozdatelya i ispolnitelya na "Prairie Home Companion". Eto raznoobraznyye shou s muzykoy i yumorom, kotoryy, proizvedennyy v shtate Minnesota, transliruyetsya na natsional'nom urovne. Eto yavlyayetsya rezul'tatom shou, kotoroye Keillor proizvoditsya kak student universiteta. Tam net drugogo shou, kak eto. Sam Keillor stal orakulom v kul'turnykh i politicheskikh krugakh.

V to vremya kak ya slushal chasto "Preriya Domashniy Kompan'on," YA nikogda ne poseshchal kakiye-libo iz yego vystupleniy. YA Vstrechayushchiyesya Keillor sebya na obshchestvennykh meropriyatiyakh i s nim razgovarivala neskol'ko raz. No moi otnosheniya vo mnogom kak otdalennaya pochitatel' lichnosti i remesla Keylora.

Robert Blay

Robert Blay, avtor bestsellera "Zheleznyy Dzhon," poet kakogo-to razlichiya. YA imel chest' imet' regulyarnyye i chastyye personal kontaktirovali s nim v techeniye 25 let v kachestve chlena "sufiyskoy" peniye gruppy, organizovannoy v 1992 godu, chto Blay gruppa v nastoyashcheye vremya vstrechayetsya u sebya doma Blay v. Robert Blay nedavno ispolnilos' 90. Sleduyushcheye zasedaniye budet sufiyem v nedelyu.

Prince

Prints, vsemirno izvestnyy rok-muzykant, umer ESTA proshlogo aprelya (2016 g.). Yego dom i shtab-kvartiry v Paisley Park v Chanhassen, shtat Minnesota, byl prevrashchen v khram. Eto Primerno v mile ot togo, gde ya regulyarno poseshchat' religioznyye sluzhby.

YA lichno vstrechalsya ili videl printsa dvazhdy, oba raza v 1990 godu ya nikogda ne poseshchal kakiye-libo iz svoikh kontsertov. Naibol'shiy interes dlya menya yavlyayetsya otrochestvo assotsiatsiya printsa s goroda Minneapolis, gde ya seychas zhivu.

Otets printsa zhil v techeniye dvukh let (1990-1992) v mnogokvartirnom dome (1707 Glenwood avenyu) cherez dorogu ot moyego doma v Minneapolise. Togda otets pereyekhal v dom okolo shesti kvartalakh ot menya (539 N'yuton-avenyu Yug), gde ya prozhil yeshche desyat' let, prezhde chem pereyti k Chankhassen, chtoby zhit' v dome svoyey znamenitoy syna. Sam prints byl chastym gostem v dome svoyego ottsa v te dalekiye gody.

POETOMU, v to vremya kak ya ne mogu govorit' s vlast'yu muzyki printsa ili zhizni personala, u menya yest' lakomyye kusochki informatsii o nem, kotoryye mogut byt' interesny. Operatsiya zapisi iz moyego obshcheniya s printsem ili yego okruzheniye Poyavlyayetsya v http://www.billmcgaughey.com/prince.html.
