However much we respected his songs, it was shameful that he toadied to Stalin, and as far as I am aware he was Stalinist to the end of his life.

When you sing songs of peace and freedom, it takes the edge off a bit when you support a regime that may have killed 20 million people for having a dissenting opinion.
