  Japanese music stars form band 'to make the world rock' TOKYO (AP) — Four of Japan’s biggest rock stars formed a new band, The Last Rockstars, in a race against time to preserve the spirit of rock music. “We’ve come together to start this challenge for the world out of Japan,” Yoshiki of X Japan told reporters Friday. Dressed in black, Yoshiki, Miyavi, Sugizo and Hyde announced their new group onstage in Tokyo, saying the idea developed naturally. Sugizo, guitarist for rock band Luna Sea who also plays with X Japan, said he feels the defiant spirit of rock music needs to continue, noting that the members are getting older. Aside from Miyavi, who is 41, the others are all in their 50s.

As a result of these discussions, the audience interest in Germany has so far been significantly lower than in the past world championships.
