Legend of Rock

The butt of countless jokes, Japan's tribute band scene is nonetheless large enough to support large-scale gigs such as this, attended by fans who realise their musical heroes are either too old, too dead or too past-it to relive their past glories for themselves. The latest Legend of Rock outdoor spectacle features many of the event's staple acts, among them The Beggars (as The Rolling Stones), Von Halen (as Van Halen), Mr. Jimmy (as Led Zeppelin) and the justifiably legendary Jimisen (as Jimi Hendrix). It's a bizarre spectacle, but one executed with enough affection, tongue-in-cheek humour and technical proficiency to win over all but the most ardent haters.
