How is it a burn when you clearly missed something I'd already said??? wtf.

(I thought I'd alluded enough to the fact that she said in the interviews I started to translate that it really was a fast-paced, rushed job for her, implying that yes, she did do actual stressful work here--even if the songs aren't new and she's not the arranger, ummmm okay that doesn't mean she isn't the one OVERSEEING ALL OF IT--but I guess I didn't, and that's my fault)

Why Sugizo?
1. He's a good songwriter.
2. He can bring back some of that rock edge back to SR.

I think Ringo and Sugizo would make brilliant music together and that Ringo would be the weaker member/composer. Ringo has clearly shown over her entire career that she doesn't know how versatile a guitar is. She usually picks one theme for the guitar and uses it for the whole album. I'm sure Sugizo would remedy that problem. Of course, releases would be much more sporadic than now.

Hell, I'll even one up you and further mix TJ and Luna Sea. My band lineup would be:

Vox: Ringo
Guitar: Sugizo
Guitar: Inoran/Eric Zay - their clean plucking stuff really eliminates most of the need for a piano/keyboard which Ringo could play when needed.
Bass: J - Sorry, Kameda. I'm growing a little tired of your production and mostly predictable bass.
Drums: Hata.

I also thought that was really funny. Hata seems like such an earnest and hard-working guy that making fun of his nervous, pre-typed 'speech' is exactly the kind of asshole-ish thing that I would expect HZM to do (and that's not a bad thing - a lot of the funniest people I know are assholes...you just have to know how to present yourself ).

Oh Maou, you got me all excited! But I think I'd still want a keyboardist in there though. Having a piano just adds another dimension to the music. So HZM.

And since 3/5 of Luna Sea is in there, maybe they could get Ryuichi in to do a duet with Ringo. And a Shinya/Hata drum battle!

^ I disagree. He's a bit like Ukky in that he's not ideal to play lead in a band, but he's the perfect rhythm guitarist. Inoran is the only man on the planet that can compliment Sugizo's playing.

Ideal TJ line up 2:
Replace Ukky with Asai Kenichi.

Yes that will be good.
