Crush 40 Rock Tokyo Game Show

Crush 40 Rock Tokyo Game Show

Junny Baby!

This has been coming for a long, long time.

Finally! the mighty guitar skills of the legendary Jun Senoue, and the vocal tenacity of Axel Rudi Pell lead singer Johnny Gioeli have reunited to perform what can only be described as an electrifying medley of classic Crush 40 tracks at the Tokyo Game Show on the 12th of October. I had been talking to Jun about a month ago, and although he told me to keep it all very hush hush, he said there would be a little surprise for those in attendance; that being a live performance of the new title track for the upcoming Wii title Sonic and the Black Knight, “Knight of the Wind”.

Johnny and Jun crash onto stage with an extra long opening version of “I am…All of Me”, before burning rubber into their version of “His World” (which we all know rocks the hardest, sorry Zebrahead). Other performed tracks include the “Sonic Heroes Theme”, “What I’m Made of” and of course, the obligatory “Live and Learn” theme from SA2.

Highlights of the video include Jun’s infamous Sonic Adventure guitar (with the Sonic shoe Headstock), Sonic rocking out in the front row, and the hoards and hoards of hot girls getting down and dirty to a rather excited crowd.

Thanks loads to my very good friend Animegirl aka Angelidia for sticking these up on youtube for everyone to enjoy, and also to Manny from the JunSenoue.com for recording them!
