Biography

(1988 – present)

Formed in 1988, B’z are guitarist 松本孝弘 and vocalist, 稲葉浩志. Over the span of twenty-five years, B’z have released 18 albums, 6 EPs (including a Korea-only release) and 50 singles, with 15 of the albums and 46 of the singles consecutively debuting #1 on Japan’s Oricon Chart. B’z have sold over 80 million CDs in Japan alone, making them the best-selling artist in Japan’s history.

Under the recommendation of Steve Vai, B’z were inducted into the Hollywood Rock Walk in 2007 as the first Asian artist. As a world acclaimed six-string virtuoso, Tak Matsumoto joined legendary guitarists Jimmy Page, Joe Perry, Ace Frehley and Slash, to become the fifth guitarist in the world to have his own Gibson USA signature model, the ‘Tak Matsumoto Les Paul.’ In 2010, Matsumoto released TAKE YOUR PICK with jazz guitarist, Larry Carlton, and won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Album at the 53rd Grammy Awards last February. Koshi Inaba’s solo efforts include the studio album, Hadou, which was also released in 2010 and debuted number one on the Oricon album charts. Inaba also appeared as a guest vocalist on Slash’s solo album last year.
Besides releasing a long line of number one singles and albums in Japan, B’z are known for their dynamic live shows. They began 2010 with a sold-out dome tour in Japan, including 4 nights at the famed Tokyo Dome with 600,000 fans in attendance.
