Legendary heavy metal act from Tokyo, Japan. Led by guitarist/vocalist Kyoji Yamamoto, the band formed in 1975. Started out as a melodic classic/hard rock band in the mid 'til late 70's, they quickly made a name for themselves and were touring with popular acts of the time, such as Kiss and Aerosmith. Yamamoto proved himself early on as an accomplished guitarist developing the "hammer technique" long before Eddie Van Halen made it popular. In the early 80's Bow Wow changed their sound to a energetic heavy metal sound, fueled with powerful guitar riffs and fast-driven baselines.
