Okay now...who among you was rocking out to heavy metal and hair bands with me back in the 1980s? Perhaps you remember this heavy metal band from Japan that hit the charts in the US during that time. It's the band called Loudness.
The band was formed in 1981 by guitarist Akira Takasaki and drummer Munetaka Higuchi. They are most noted for being the first Japanese heavy metal act signed in the United States, releasing seven albums, including three in the US, and reaching the Billboard Top 100.
I wonder if these guys are still playing together. They were really good!!!
