Rockin' Hard in the Land of the Rising Sun: Marty Friedman

Rockin' Hard in the Land of the Rising Sun: Marty Friedman

One of J-Rock's most surprising superstars is an American guitarist whose driving, wild style made Megadeth one of the most compelling Metal bands of the '90s. His passion for J-Rock eventually led him to live and shred there, eventually ending up marrying a Japanese musician himself. His name: Marty Friedman. But you can also call him Hebimeta-san. (ヘビメタさん, Heavy-Metal-san.)
