Icon43 Cosmosquad Live in Japan

I am unlucky that I have to miss Chad Smith and Jeff Kollman band as I am leaving for Malaysia before the gig takes place.

However, I am lucky that I had a chance to see Cosmosquad solo concert in Tokyo tonite.

I think Shane was the most well known among the others as he had toured with a Japanese Pop/Rock band in the past. He was as agressive/powerful as I saw him with Glenn in Derby 2001.

Jeff !! You are the man!! His guitar play was so hot and shook the venue with his nice Strat and Fender amp combination.

Surprisingly, the band did not play any song with voice. Personally, as Jeff on stage in Japan is so precious, I expected something like Jerusalem or other song with his or Shane's singing. They could have done even some rock classics but they did their stage with only Cosmosquad songs all instrumental!!

Isn't it amazing when Japanese audience is shifting more to domestic music rather than Western music these days, the band did not flatter the audience and finished the show with their original songs!!

I think I was the oldest in the venue. There were many young fans. Probably, profit wise, I think it is very tight but I respect the band because they were doing their own best under the band name Cosmosquad while there may be a lot more pop tunes which they have collaborated in their long musical history.

Lastly, I liked your Japanese language with your wondeful bass play, Chris Maloney.
