On Thursday, November 9, former Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman will return to the Japan Foundation in Los Angeles to participate in another public question-and-answer session, "Ask Marty Vol. 2: An Insider's View Of Japan Through The Eyes Of An American Rockstar".
Those wishing to attend, can reserve their spot now at the Japan Foundation Los Angeles web site.
"Marty Friedman will expose Japan to you in ways you’ve never contemplated. Please send in your questions to Marty on five areas of life in Japan: language, music, lifestyle, manners, food, or any other burning questions you may have, and he will answer them as candidly as a rockstar possibly can!" reads the Q&A announcement.
Friedman's love of Japanese music and culture led him on a remarkable journey, from his early success as Megadeth's lead guitarist. After moving to Tokyo in 2003, he became a fixture on Japanese television, appearing in hundreds of programs, commercials, and even films. In 2017, Friedman was appointed Ambassador of Japan Heritage in recognition of his deep understanding and appreciation of Japanese culture. He is the first foreigner to ever receive this honor.
