Former MEGADETH guitarist Marty Friedman, who moved to Japan in 2003, asked his “good friend” Steve Lukather to do a little jam with him, a short arrangement of one of Marty‘s all-time favorite Japanese songs, “Sukiyaki”. Friedman says, “Japan has always been, and will always be, a unique, wonderful and inspiring place for both of us.”
Check out the resulting track in the YouTube clip below.
Friedman recently announced plans to auction all of his guitars from the MEGADETH era and donate 100 percent of the proceeds to Japanese earthquake relief efforts. He said in a statement, “I have NEVER sold ANY of my guitars before; this is the only way these guitars will leave my possession. I urge you to please spread the word and most of all BID HIGH. You will be putting a huge deposit in the ‘karma bank’ and have some pretty cool guitars to show for it. DO IT!”
