AboutMarty Friedman`s presence in the world of music, the world of guitar, and Japanese pop culture is mystifying, bizarre, and nothing short of inspiring.
Born in Washington D.C., Friedman first gained attention with the band Cacophony, which he founded with equally enigmatic and now legendary guitarist, Jason Becker. They released two highly rated albums and then he was recruited by Megadeth in 1990, appearing over the next decade on some of the most influential metal albums of all time. His breathtaking range and unorthodox musical contributions to Rust In Peace' in 1990 and 'Countdown To Extinction' two years later. made him an icon as well as helped propel Megadeth to its peak.
Since 2003, Friedman has lived in Tokyo where he has become a household name, even beyond the world of music. Since moving to Japan, hes appeared on over 700 Japanese TV shows of every variety, as well as motion pictures and commercials. He was also recently appointed an Ambassador of Japan Heritage by the Japanese Government. At the same time he continued releasing his solo albums and touring for them worldwide.
Starting in 1988 with 'Dragon's Kiss', Friedman has regularly put out well received solo records. 'Tokyo Jukebox 3' is the latest in this distinguished, ongoing line. As the title suggests it's the third in this series of albums featuring Marty`s unique interpretations of Japanese songs.
