The Brilliant Green loses guitarist
the brilliant green announced on their official website on Monday that guitarist Ryo Matsui (38) has left the group. He did not reveal the reasons for his departure.
The band formed in 1995 and made their major label debut two years later. In 1998, they achieved their first #1 single with “There Will Be Love There -Ai no Aru Basho-.” The band was on hiatus for several years due to the solo projects of vocalist Tomoko Kawase (35), but they resumed activities in 2007. Around the end of last year, they changed record labels to Warner Music Japan.
