Japanese music magazine, PATI PATI 2011 Nov Issue
Congratulations! CNBLUE’s major debut in Japan!
The theme that suits this issue’s cover and feature story so much is “rock”. It isn’t just about music, it’s a symbol of the soul too. What does this word mean to these four persons?
Yonghwa – Legend.
Enchanted by Bon Jovi, known more about SKID ROW and Ronnie James Dio. Just as many rock bands have become legendary, I hope CNBLUE will become a legend one day.
Jonghyun – Oh~ROCK & ROLL!!!
Having seen Eric Clapton, I fell in love with the guitar and music. Having seen Oasis, I fell for the genre “rock”. Having seen Noel Gallagher, I realized the lead vocal doesn’t have to stand in the middle, and the position of the guitarist can be a very cool one. And whenever I listen to their music, I always think of this: Oh~ROCK & ROLL!!!
Minhyuk – Thousands of times, tens of thousands of times.
The rousing cheers of the audiences and their moving with the rhythms is the first thing that comes to my mind. How the band members unite with the audience, which are tens of times bigger than the stage itself, thousands of times and even tens of thousands of times more numerous than them, this is “rock”.
Jungshin – Not a special thing.
“Rock” isn’t anything special, just something for everybody to breath together and enjoy together.
