Advanced Audio Blog S6 #13 - Japanese Musicians - Imawano Kiyoshiro

Throwback Thursday
Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com! As you're enjoying a rock concert in Japan with some friends, the singer suddenly yells out in Japanese, "We all love each other, right?" When he finishes speaking, the crowd goes into a wild frenzy of applause and yelling that lasts for several minutes. After the show is over, you comment to your friends in Japanese about how strongly the crowd responded to this expression of sentiment. But apparently, the vocalist was merely paying homage to another, more popular Japanese singer-songwriter. In this lesson, you will learn about the Japanese "King of Rock," Kiyoshiro Imawano. We will explain how he got his Japanese nickname and share many more interesting facts about his life in Japan.
