Who: Kevin K
When: 20 December 1998 – Kichijoji, Tokyo, Japan
This is such a cool picture. The legend that is Mr Kevin K, cranking out the rock tunage – with a Hello Kitty soft toy listening intently. This was actually taken at a private sayonara party to signal the end of Kevin’s tour of Japan (December 1998) at a club in Kichijoji called ‘Let It Be’. I’ve got fond memories of that ‘Scene Of The Crime’ tour, which I’ll discuss in greater detail on another post, but the Kevin K Band, (which included then new boys Toni and Ricky from Detroit’s Trash Brats, and Karl Durden on skins) were in smokin’ hot form at every show. Kevin K is the real deal and it was an honour to go on tour and hang out with him. This photo captures the fun and good times had by all on the 1998 Japan Tour.
