TAK MATSUMOTO GROUP COME BACK COME BACK

MESSAGE

from ERIC MARTIN

I have been a singer/songwriter for most of my life. I have had the greatest honor and opportunity to perform over a hundred times Japan. The heart and soul of this country is unique ..I will forever treasure the wonderful memories and the Fan friendships that I’ve made with all the Japanese people throughout my career. It’s been 20 years since I rocked the stages of Japan with the legendary guitarist Tak Matsumoto and my old friend and bass playing showman Jack Blades from Night Ranger. We had a blast last time , it’s still gives me a spark and a smile… I can’t wait to see my friends again and sing for all of you TMG fans … ”We’re back with the Tak, Jack and Eric Attack”!!

from TAK MATSUMOTO

Hi, how've you been ?
I hope all is well with you.
Actually, I have an idea of TMG reunion in 2024.
It's been exactly 20 years.
What do you say ?

I love it! I am in!!!!!!! It will be so much fun ( Jack )

It’s great to hear from you and I think it would be a wonderful reunion ( Eric )

On November 22, 2022, it all began with this exchange. After 20 years, a Japanese-U.S. joint hard rock band is back in action. We'll be touring the country with our new album. Whether you saw us 20 years ago or it's your first time, TMG is ready to rock with you!

from JACK BLADES

TMG two! well, it’s about time. I have often thought how blessed I am to have played with some of the greatest guitar players of my era, Brad Gillis, Ted Nugent, Tommy Shaw, Neal Schon, Doug Aldrich, and of course Japan’s own, my friend Tak Matsumoto.
When Tak called me and suggested we do TMG Ⅱ my answer was:
“Well it’s about time!” Eric, Tak and I had so much fun writing, recording and touring with TMG Ⅰ that the thought of not doing TMG Ⅱ was never an option.
Well it’s about time.
Japan and the world get ready because here we come. After rocking everywhere for the last 20 years with our own bands we are back for the Tak Jack and Eric attack!
And all I can say is: “It’s about time”!!!!
Japan here we come.
