God damn it! Latest ranking as in May 2010 is not as reported below. Our man is no. 2, Arashi is no. 1. God damn it! Sorry, very disappointed at first fluke news, then wrong news, then bad news!
This is Nikkei Entertainment's Talent Power Ranking and alas, this may be old news! Thanks to Izumisano for the clarification, she said she couldn't find such news at the Nikkei site. Moreover the power ranking is done once a year only, and it was recently conducted in May 2010 which was published in April 2010. The one in question is not a specific musician chart but rather the overall industry chart as in the entertainment chart. I find that even more staggering news! More on the Talent power ranking news here. Well on one hand I am extremely disappointed that there is no such thing as most influential musician ranking but then I am happy he top the chart for over industry! Sigh... regurgitation of old news!
Could this be a joke? Is this real?
Japanese magazine "Nikkei Entertainment" recently launched in the country, "the most influential musicians in Japan," surveys for 1,000 artists concerned about the degree of visibility and calculate their influence, the result ...of Fukuyama Masaharu become music's most influential No.1.
