I know hundreds, so I'll stick to my favorite: Asai Kenichi

His bands: Blankey Jet City, Jude, Sherbets, Ajico (with UA). I guess they are classified as JRock/Alternative.

Blankey Jet City inspired hundreds of other groups and musicians. Ringo Shiina said that Asai Kenichi was her idol.

If you want to find out about great rockers from Japan when they come to the U.S. and Canada, see the site http://www.rockofjapan.com

I PM'ed you.

well, to be honest i don't know much about asian music except the local music scene in our country. i know some of the local pilipino bands that are known in other countries such as bamboo is known in other parts of south east asia and grey houndz is known in the underground music scene in the US. try listening to our local alternative rock music. they are really good. heard of rivermaya?

there are alot of good pilipino music around and the bad thing is they are not that much known internationally. :cry: some are available on pilipino stores in the US or other pilipino communities in other countries.
