Hi, oil on canvas has been on constantly in my office this week and the memories of the final tour have come flooding back. How did the inclusion of Masami come about and do you still keep in touch?

Masami and I first worked together as members of the Yukihiro Takahashi band in summer ’82. It was after this that he was invited to play with JAPAN on our final tour. We sometimes connect through various events/friends but not for some time now.

  1. Thank you Steve for replying to my question. My daughter, Alexia who is 7 loves your work. Looking forward to hearing the new work with exit north. Be well.

  2. I thought you recorded Rice Music with Masami prior to that tour, in London, around the same time as the Akiko album? They were all in the UK to record and promote the CBS Japanese album releases.
