Will the son of Yuri Shatunov be able to sing his songs


The lawyer spoke about the rights of the son of singer Yuri Shatunov to his work.

After the death of Yuri Shatunov, who died of a massive heart attack at the end of June, all his property and rights to songs were transferred to the widow Svetlana and children: 16-year-old Dennis and 9-year-old Estella. The artist’s daughter is still small, but the son will soon become an adult, which means he will be able to fully enter into the inheritance, including he will be able to control the fate of Shatunov’s hits.

Fans of the ex-soloist of “Tender May” are worried that the legendary compositions will sink into oblivion, and seriously believe that Dennis could take the place of his father and perform them, and, as the star lawyer Sergey Zhorin explained, the young man has the right to do this now, without waiting until half a year has passed since the death of Shatunov.

In any case, if someone claims their rights to the songs or starts to prohibit Shatunov’s son, a trial will begin. While all this lasts, the heirs will enter into the inheritance, and the decision of the court will, in one form or another, become legally binding. Therefore, in this case, the son of Shatunov can perform the compositions of his father“, – said the lawyer.

True, there remains a danger that the former producer of the late artist will continue to defend his rights to the songs of Tender May, but even in this case, Zhorin believes, a solution can be found.

One can only guess how the other side will prevent the distribution and performance of these works. Most likely, they will start sending bans to concert venues, but you can work with all this, be creative”, he added in an interview with

Recall that shortly before the sudden death of Shatunov, his long legal proceedings with the ex-producer over the copyright to the hits of “Tender May” ended. The servants of Themis eventually sided with the artist, recognizing that the band’s tracks belong to him.
