If I were to write up this review for a Japanese website, there would be no need to do any history or back ground on Tomoyasu Hotei. With millions of record sales under his belt, famous does not explain his stature in his home country. Contrast that to what may well be the smallest show he has performed in years with just a few hundred present at The Lexington in London.

I first heard of Zakk Wylde back in the eighties when he recorded and toured with rock legend Ozzy Osbourne. Zakk then went on to form a short lived blues rock trio Pride & Glory. Since the demise of that band Zakk has forged his own musical path with Black Label Society. Bls as they have become to be known are returning to play a UK Tour next month. I managed to secure some time with Zakk while he was touring in the States last week to have a chat.
