I decided that instead of just displaying what I thought of him as an individual, I'd give his music a listen. And like I said, (and I hate to admit it) it ain't bad. But for someone who's profession is music, it's rather odd he hasn't come out with an album for such awhile. My friend's band (in Chicago) has released 2 or 3 CD's in the time it's taken Toshi to release one, and my friend still runs his own shop full-time. I dunno, I guess I shouldn't be so judgemental. But it's difficult not to, when you look at his website.
