Loudness’, Minoru Niihara, Turns 57

One of the busiest men in classic metal, Minoru Niihara, turned 57 on Sunday. You know him as the current front man of Loudness (1981-1988, 2001-present), but Minoru has also enjoyed success as a solo artist and front man for other bands alike.

Earthshaker, Loudness, Ded Chaplin, Sly, X.Y.Z.→A, Nishidera Minoru, and some 50+ combined records adorn Minoru’s resume. We wish him a well-deserved Happy Birthday!
