GUITAR WOLF are
Guitar Wolf – Seiji
Drum Wolf – Toru
Bass Wolf – Hikaru
Guitar Wolf’s maxim has always been…
SEIJI says : “There are rules for the rock and roll band. First, the band has to have looks. Second, fighting spirit. Third, action. There is no fourth and fifth. Sixth, technique. The band is not qualified to stand on the stage if they don’t have anything to watch at all. Even if the band can play the music well technically, there’s nothing there if they don’t have something special to catch people’s eyes. Stir people’s heart and your own! ”
AND for those who came in after the advertisements … this is the Japanese band that got The D4 to Japan in 1999, took the Transistors from Rangiora on a mammoth US tour in 2012, created mammoth human pyramids on their 2013 tour, spent Christmas Day 2005 with famous NZ artist Henrietta Harris and her mum, had noise control close down their first Auckland show in 1999 not to mention shows in Japan and USA with Joan Jett, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, The Cramps …
Guitar Wolf’s 30th Anniversary Jett Rock And Roll NZ tour … not for the faint hearted ….. and in case you missed it
