He may look like a punk rocker, but he is all ロックンロール (rock 'n roll). I grabbed this shot will in Osaka-jo koen (大坂城公園 ) during hanami (花見). This group of classic rock 'n rollers would grab the set and go at it for about 40 minutes and than take a beer break while their friends filled in their spots. They played great covers of American Rock 'n Roll in both English and Japanese. These die hards kept the myth going that when something comes to Japan it becomes timeless and unchanging. All I can say is Rock on you Gods of rock m( _ _ )m Rock On!
In less awesome news, I updated my Flickr! account with new photos. They are definately worth a look.
