# 1 This Week – – – G L A Y

Another # 1 single for GLAY.  The four man J Rock phenomena has over forty hit singles since 1994.

Teru, Takuro, Hisashi, and Jiro  release another major hit with “I am xxx.”

Officially, the name “Glay” is a deliberate misspelling of the word “gray” and represents the style of music they play: a mixture between rock (black) and pop (white) However, it is thought by many English-speaking fans that the misspelling of the band’s name may actually have been due to a genuine error.  The Japanese language does not distinguish between the retroflex (“r”) and lateral (“l”) phonemes of the liquid morpheme.
