This year, 43 years has passed since the debut of singer Mori Masako (56). Masako chose to stop singing when she got married to her senior singer in 1986 in which she gave birth to three sons. When she was officially separated with husband in 2005, she decided to return to entertainment industry.
One that raises a revolution both in Japan and foreign music scene, Crossfaith and one which fanbase is growing by leaps and bounds inside and outside the country, ONE OK ROCK. As their much-anticipated two-man concert at Ebisu Liquidroom ended in a big success, we got the chance to interview them! Here is the exclusive interview between Kenta Koie of Crossfaith and Taka of ONE OK ROCK.

Hello! Long time no see 😀
Sorry for the irregular update. I’ve been so busy these days that I almost have no time to read articles nor translate. Some stuff I wanna share keeps piling up in the draft, so sorry 😦
But this time I wanna share about short stories that depict the recent relationship of Mori Shinichi and his son, Taka. Idk if anyone has shared about this, but I hope you could enjoy it. Thanks a lot to 23chan for the heads up!
Mori Shinichi, Underwent Surgery to Remove Lung Tumor
from Daily Sports Gossip published on May 11
Enka singer Mori Shin’ichi (66) who made an appearance on BS Asahi program “The Interview~ Portrait of The Top Runner” broadcasted at 10th (of May), admitted that he underwent surgery to remove lung cancer 2,3 years ago. There was a suspicion that he got a cancer but the person concerned explained through newspaper coverage, “It was found to be benign from the result of the removal”
Mori said during the program, “There was tumor in the lung and the doctor told me, ‘It’s malignant’ “. He recalled further, “We have to take it off immediately (and the surgery was decided). Eventho it went well but I was shocked to know the removed tumor was around (a pack of) cigarette big. Obviously a cancer as it’s said”
Before the surgery, Mori texted his three sons about his medical condition. The eldest son who is the vocalist of a rock band ONE OK ROCK, Taka (26) begged the doctor in the patient room, “Save my father”

(Yellow part) The snow breaks when I got invited to the concert
Mori : When “Nobody’s Home” in the encore was over, I stared at him as he looked in my direction and bowed down. There were things happened as he got a rebellious stage, but it’s all gone. I was glad to know that he’s growing up.
I want to make a good music together with people of the same generation
I love Japanese culture.
And I was nervous when I met Utada
