Tag Archives: Rasputin’s daughter

June 13th “Riding the Waves with Rasputin”

I just finished an audio book called “Rasputin’s Daughter” that was pretty good.  I’ve always been intrigued with Rasputin and his roll in taking down the Romanov dynasty.   My favorite class in college was ‘Russian Culture through Film’ which featured a great Russian movie about Rasputin.

This song is kind of about the rumors surrounding his family.   His daughter did move to LA and become a Lion tamer and she was mauled by a bear eventually.    Kind of a morbid subject, but I put a little light twist on the chorus.
