ok ok.here is the verdict with the latest single. The 1st beat is "Ring" which is a ballard (like "nigai ai" from the Brotherhood album)and it will be the theme song for a drama "asawo dakishimete." The 2nd beat is "Guilty"
This should be the final word with this single but as always come back, just in case. :)

Anyway here is some great news that I heard through the grape vine. A great source has informed us that a new single is scheduled to be released sometime in October for a new drama. The title of the song is "asuo dakishimete" but not sure yet....

Hey guys!! The new video that we've been all waiting for is out!!!! yeah! go get it. it should should rock. I have to say sorry to the people who got the Brotherhood video and didn't understand it....
In that video they seemed to be two down to earth guys who love to make music. The money that they make is crazy but it doesn't go to there heads like some artists in Japan. So if you have a Japanese friend ask him/her to watch it with you. They will enjoy it as much as you do.... bye for now.

This just in. i have listen to the bonus track a couple of times to figure out the lyrics to the song. even though that koshi is speak english very well it was hard to take in some of the song but i' pretty sure this is right. so here it is.

You can't hide you know it's true
You can't run still got many things to do
You never wanted this situation to be a birden, drag them down

Life is short too short to have fun
Life is long too long to go wrong
Carrying a heavy load it's made you cold
You've got too much on your mind it's making you old

CHORUS
Stand up in the middle of the raging river
wash away, wash away
Erase your memory of everything you love
wash away, wash away, wash away

Tak's solo on accoustic gutiar and fade out

The song all done by one accoustic gutiar. Song by Tak and Lyrics by Koshi

Oh my god!! i just got "The Mixture." It came with the CUBE that they promised so i'm happy with that!!! but i was very sursrised with the "B'z Media Player." There is a song inside the cd that is not readable on the computer without the "B'z Media Player." Unlike the "Survive" album that had a pretty bad music video that was shot in New Orleans, this one has a very cool song on it! It has no title and was sung in English. The song is very short, not even a minute and a half. so once again go get "The Mixture" maybe i'll find a way to get the song and post it for the next spotlight song!!
GET THE "B'z Media Player":www.bz-mixture.com
Click at the BONUS TRACK section of the site.

Hey everybody! This is Tom. I found out that there is something special about the new B'z cd. It seems like if you download an "B'z Media Player" at www.bz-mixture.comyou can listen to a bonus track off the cd. I have no idea how this works but that's what the site says. So if you get a chance get "The Mixture"

The unthinkable may happen! CLOSURE could be the name for a new remix album....it sounds like a rumour to me, but I am on the B'z fan Site Chat Room now...I told them and they are absolutely going bonkers here!
This could be the beginning of the end of B'z...I hope not....

Taks New Gibson Les Paul Signature Model

As you all may have already heard, Taks New Signature Model Guitar was announced at a press conference in Tokyo last week. The expected cost is 560,000 yen, and only 90 of them will be made. Tak Matsumoto is only the 5th guitarist in history to have a signature model by Gibson. As an interesting side note, it is also one of the most expensive guitars ever produced by
Gibson. For comparison, the Ace Frehley Signature Model is about $3,500, compared to the exchange rate for Taks which is about $5,200!
