~ Person


Aleksandr Geogriyevich Vasilev (Cyrillic: Александр Георгиевич Васильев) (born 15 July 1969) is the lead singer and a guitar player for the Russian rock band Splean.
Vasilev was born in then-Leningrad (now Sankt-Peterburg) in 1969. In 1993 he formed Splean (спЛин) with Nikolai Rostovskiy, which remains one of the most popular rock bands in Russia and the former Soviet Union.
When Vasilev was 1½ years old his family moved to Sierra Leone where his father worked as an engineer and his mother taught Russian at the Soviet embassy there. The family returned to Russia in 1974, but moved to the town of Zarasai in nearby Lithuania soon after, until they returned to Leningrad finally in 1980. It was then that Vasilev first heard Russian rock music. The first band he heard was Машина Времени (Time Machine}. Vasilev was enthralled and soon began learning how to play the guitar.
Vasilev served in the Soviet army from 1987 to 1990. When he returned home, he went to work at a theatre institute, where in 1993 he was introduced to Nikolai Rostovskiy, with whom he formed Splean.
