*初めての方は、まずコチラ(TEXAS日記について)を読んでいただけたらと思います。
(2008年05月29日の日記より)

a0125001_441817.jpg
2006 SRV Fan Club Last Tour 全米各地はもとより、世界各国、イングランド、オーストラリア、オランダ、ハンガリー、そして日本(僕で〜す!)からSRVのファンがTEXASに集まってStevieゆかりの地を巡るという、SRVファンにとっては涙もののツアーでした。この時に出会った仲間とは今でも交流しています。特に、ハンガリーからやってきた(現在はTEXAS在住)Tommy Katonaとの出会いは衝撃的でした。最初からお互い惹かれ合っていましたから。とにかく運命だったのでしょう。彼のおかげで僕の初めてのCDをTEXASでRecordingすることも出来たのですから...




2006年のSRV Fan Club Last Tourに参加してから凄くラッキーな事が起こりまくったので、感謝の意味も込めて、TEXASの関係者のみなさんにお返しがしたいという気持ちもあります。近々、SRVの凄い本を出す予定のCraigさん(Stevie Ray Vaughan official Fan Clubのボス)、や、StevieのロードマネージャーをやっていたCutterさん、SRV Ride & Concertの運営委員のRic,Shon,etc...

日本にいては、なかなか手に入らないTEXASの情報(オススメのミュージシャン、クラブetc...)とか、知っている範囲で、みなさんにお伝え出来ればと思います。それが日本ではほとんど知られていない彼らへの恩返しとなる事を祈って...


次回から色んなエピソードが登場しますのでお楽しみに!

今年もTEXASで開催されます。SRV Ride & Concert!

僕も2008年以来、2回目の出演が決定しました。
今回はKouichi and Friends / TEXAS featuring Tommy Katonaをリリースした後なので良いプロモーションになればと思っています。

自分のBANDで出演したかったのですが、今回は Tallan Latz w/ Harless Brothers & Kouichi Moritaという形で出演させていただきます。

唯一の日本人として、誇り高く演奏してきたいと思います
個人的には今までお世話になった方々(日本とアメリカ)への感謝の気持ち、もちろんStevie Ray Vaughanに対する憧れと追悼の気持ち、そして微力ではありますが、東日本大震災の被災地の方々を応援する気持ちを込めて演奏してきます。

嬉しい事に、いつもTEXASでお世話になっている方の息子のBrandon Katonaと盟友のTommy Katonaも今回のSRV Ride & Concertに出演します。二人とも僕のTEXAS CDでも演奏してくれています。良ければ一度聴いてみて下さいね!
