Marty Friedman lives in Japan now, because apparently it’s easy to get laid there if you’re white, so no further explanation needed.
But aside from bringing the luckus to the radies (oh snap! racism!111), he’s also behind the number one album in the country — called ‘Gift of Smap.’
You’re probably wondering what Smap means. Well, apparently it’s a pop group.
“The song is ‘LA+Love And Peace’. I have played guitar on a few No. 1s before, but this is my first songwriting No. 1 anywhere! The lyrics were written by Satomi, who wrote the fantastic ‘Yuki No Hana’, which I covered on my first ‘Tokyo Jukebox’ album.“
Explained Friedman, even though no one asked him to.
There is so much WTF coming from Japan, it’s not even funny. At least Marty has a job, right?
