R&E-Conrado Pesinato (E)

ZERO: What do you do to keep physically and mentally fit while on tour?

Conrado: To keep mentally fit, I try to listen to a lot of music. I constantly change between Bjork, Iron Maiden, Deep Purple, Jeff Buckley, Steve Vai, Jimi Hendrix and Sepultura. It all depends on my mood.

R&E-Beth-Ami Heavenstone (E)

ZERO: What concert inspired you to become a musician?

Beth-Ami: The first concert that I went to was Yes and Peter Frampton. It was an outdoor festival and it was unbelievable. Not only was I inspired to become a musician, but there was this amazing comradery that occurred between all of the audience.

R&E-Graham Bonnet (E)

ZERO: What’s it like to be in Japan?

Graham: It’s always great fun here. I think that Japanese fans are the best fans in the world and the most dedicated. I’ve met people on this tour that I’ve known for about 30 something years. They are a great rock n’ roll crowd and always have been. When I first came here with Rainbow in 1980, I was so surprised how into rock music they were.

R&E-Yoshiyuki Mitani (E)

ZERO: When did you get interested in English?

Mitani: When I was a teenager, I loved 70’s British hard rock like Black Sabbath, Uriah Heep, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple. I wanted to visit the UK and I found a government student exchange program to study English in the UK. So, I went to Tokyo from Kyoto to take the exam. There were about 150 people who were chosen from all over Japan. When the examiner came to the class room, he said “Good morning” in English.

R&E-Kenjiro (E)

ZERO: When did you start studying English?

Kenjiro Murai: As is normal for Japanese, I started studying English from the first grade of my junior high school. I also had to take French at my school so I studied the alphabet in French at the same time. After that, I studied in Philadelphia, U.S.A. for a month and did a home stay when I was in first grade of my high school. We had to go either the US or France depending on your major. So, that was my first experience to speak in English in daily life. However, I couldn’t communicate so well.

ZERO: Are you interested in speaking English?

KENTARO: My dad always said to me, “You should speak English in the future.” I was studying at an English cram school when I was in sixth grade. I was too young to be interested in studying English or even music at that age. All I had on my mind1 was playing baseball. Even now, I only use English when I email Ninezero. That’s all.
