At first, Vladimir Presnyakov Sr. did not pay attention to pain in his side. The artist thought that perhaps the cause of the ailment was stones or sand in the kidneys. When the pain became unbearable, he turned to the capital’s doctors, who sent Vladimir Presnyakov Sr. for a full examination. Later it turned out that the artist had a malignant tumor. The kidney had to be urgently removed. “Yes, the kidney was taken away, but people live without it,” said the saxophonist.
According to the artist’s wife, Elena Presnyakova, her husband did not tell her about his illness, and until recently she did not know what pain Presnyakov Sr. was experiencing. “Vladimir hides everything from me. I didn’t even know what he had there, ”Elena said on the air of the program. According to Presnyakov’s wife, the spouse was very lucky to find a professional surgeon. Now the artist is undergoing preventive chemotherapy, as the body must fully recover after the removal of the kidney. Vladimir Presnyakov Sr. said that he now feels great and tolerates recovery well. Elena Presnyakova said that after the operation, special sports simulators appeared at their home. However, according to Elena, her husband rarely touches them.

Vladimir Presnyakov Sr., talking about his operation, recalled how his son, 53-year-old musician Vladimir Presnyakov, barely survived the coronavirus. In April 2021, the singer publicly revealed that he had contracted covid. The disease was severe and Presnyakov Jr. even thought that he would not survive. According to the artist, if not for his wife Natalya Podolskaya, who forced him to go to the hospital, he would not have coped.

Recall that Vladimir Presnyakov Sr. was born into a family of hereditary musicians, and his son Vladimir and grandson Nikita continued his legacy and also devoted their lives to music. In 1957, while studying, Presnyakov Sr. became interested in playing the saxophone. The artist had to do it secretly, because in those days playing this musical instrument was not welcomed. Subsequently, the saxophone became the main and favorite instrument in the artist’s life. Presnyakov was a member of the Moldovan ensemble “What Guitars Sing About”, and later joined the ensemble “Samotsvety”. When Vladimir’s son began his solo career in 1987, his father left the famous musical group and began working for his son as a saxophonist. In the future, it was music that brought Presnyakov Jr. and Kristina Orbakaite together. The couple met on the set of the Blue Light program.

According to the memoirs of Vladimir Presnyakov Sr., he found out about the romance of his son and Orbakaite only after a while. Christina’s mother, Alla Borisovna Pugacheva, did not immediately approve of her daughter’s choice. The prima donna did not like that Vladimir was four years older than Christina, but over time she adopted Presnyakov Jr. into the family. At the age of 16, Christina was already living with her lover. In 1991, the couple had a son, Nikita, but after a few years the relationship between Orbakaite and Presnyakov ended.
