GLAY ????? is a rock/pop band formed in Hakodate, Hokkaido, Japan. GLAY started in 1988, when they were in high school, with Takuro as the guitarrist, TERU as the drummer and a bassist who quit when they decided to head to Tokyo. They needed a vocalist, so TERU made a tape of his singing to give to TAKURO and was immediately recruited for the part. On the search for another guitarist, HISASHI was asked to join but turned down the offer, as he was already part of a locally well-known heavy punk/rock band called ? (Ari), which better suited his taste in music.
