Koshi Inaba's recent appearance on Japanese television program 「Music Station」has now been subtitled, including the world premiere of the full version of his upcoming single 「Hane」. The video found here is a condensed digest of the moments featuring Koshi (excerpted from the original broadcast which ran for four hours).

As previously covered in an earlier update, Koshi Inaba recently made a public appearance at HMV&BOOKS in the Shibuya Modi department store for a special radio interview. Today, as a holiday surprise, we have subtitled the entire 27-minute interview for all to enjoy. Because the program was a radio broadcast and we wanted to present the translation alongside the audio, we have created a video that we feel best presents the interview in a visual medium.
The interview took place during the「Happy Hour」program on InterFM 89.7, which broadcasts from inside the store. In the course of the show, Koshi premiered his upcoming single「Hane」and previewed another track from the upcoming release. In addition to the included previews of Koshi's two new songs, also be sure to stick around until the end for a special surprise. 「Hane」will be released on January 13th, 2016 and can be pre-ordered now from CD Japan and other retailers.

For those unfamiliar, Rakugo is a form of comedy staged by a sole storyteller as a performance.

I finally got around to posting about the Tak and Slash interview published in the 「Young Guitar」 magazine today! But let's make one thing clear first: They did not announce a collaboration or something along those lines. But perhaps we will see one in the future, who knows? The article starts by explaining that Tak and Slash have a lot in common: They have their own Gibson Signature Models, they have won a Grammy Award, they both released a number of no.1 albums, ... So it was about time that the two sat down for a proper talk. As it turns out, they have even more in common!
