Yes, Toshi's voice seems to fit the best with Yoshiki's music. Music sounds good. Toshi sounds great as ever. Never missed a beat in ten years I believed living in LA was not a good thing for Yoshiki as well, but perhaps now it does have meaning. Took long enough though The festival was a big success. Lots of people in the US were exposed to Japanese bands. People are already asking for another one. We'll if he can handle doing everything he's up to at the moment at the same time

Political power shouldn't rule a band's life. If you need to get succes in the US or anywhere trough politics then that's the wrong place.

Don't think that the US rules R&R at all. More bands seem to come from Europe, and Japan then from the US. They seem to follow the trends more, while in other places there is more room for original stuff. Specially in Japan is creativity still flowing.
