Soldier Of Fortune

Wow! What a band. LOUDNESS is still kicking. I saw these cats in Cleveland a couple of years ago.  Minoru Niihara is the vocalist again and lead guitaist Akira Takasaki – 高崎 晃 – is still awesome as ever. He’s seriously one of the best technical musicians in the world. Sadly drummer Munetaka Higuchi passed away last year.


Copy and paste the live video below. From their 25th Anniversary tour.. LOUDNESS with “Soldier of Fortune.”

In the meantime here’s a band called HARD ROCK SESSION, with a female vocalist, doing the same legendary tune. Anybody out there know this band?
