Great interview! I mean no offense to anyone, but I didn't know that theOtaku was that popular. I just thought it was a small group of people.

I do have a few TM Revolution songs (courtesy of my bff), but I never knew too much about the artist himself. So it was pretty cool to read this. What really got to me was when he said that to make your dream grow, you shouldn't lock yourself up, but encounter as many people as possible. That really hits home... and as hard as it may for some people, it's true. You only stifle yourself when you cut yourself off from the things and people you should be getting inspiration from.
Awesome interview! =^^= I'll have to keep this one in mind.

Nice questions to ask, Bossman! :D
Heroes Season 1 was much better than Season 2...
Now you've crushed the poor guy's hopes. *laughs*
Thanks for asking these questions, and posting the answers!

Darn, his response to the 'revolution' question was so perfect. I had a question close to that one that I regret not submitting earlier. *sigh* What's wrong with me?

Wow, it seemed like serendipity when the answer of the name of ABS nicely linked to the question of 80s music!
Specifically, I was getting at the guitar-work in some of the more recent guitar bands in America and Japan. The 80s music (American pop, rock, and metal) had all these intricate guitar lines and structures, and I noticed that quite a few of the 90s and early 00s Japanese bands had a similar approach to their pop, rock, and metal.
Thank you very much for asking the question, for I now have an extra fondness for ABS and, most of all, TM Revolution. The revolution shall proceed.

That makes me proud to be the guy who gave the "revolution" question. And I also liked his response to it.
The fact that Adam actually asked that question to the guy I've appreciated for singing "Heart of Sword" just made my day.

Wow. He has some really awesome answers, you can tell they are honest and thoughtful. I especially love his answer to the "advice for young artists" question (it's like the second to last one). Thanks so much for sharing your amazing opportunity with us Adam!

Haha, the threats of prodding worked!!!
Very nice interview, Bossman. The "ABS" story is awesome, the video game bit was very intelligent, and the semi-serious "revolution" question actually produced a really great response.
I'd say this went pretty well. Good stuff!

That was really cool! Neat to hear his opinions on some of these things.
Translator: You do know his label is Sony, right?
That was pure awesomeness on the translator's part, lol!
I'd rather see in shades of gray.
