  1. Japan virtuoso guitarist Taka Minamino RUMORED TO BE LADY GAGA’S NEXT GUITARTIST AND TO PERFORM AT THE JAPAN BENEFIT CONCERT FOR MTV…check him out at,, or on youtube.

  2. I fully support the music industry’s efforts to raise funds for those suffering the natural disaster in Japan.

    On 20th February 2010, Madeira Island suffered a natural disaster from flooding.  Our fatalities were less than 100, so its consequences were far less than that suffered by Japan.  But, it allows all on our island to appreciate a little of the hardship and trauma being felt by the Japanese.

    I urge everyone to support relief  events.
