Lady Gaga and Bill Heresy
Bill: I did take a break and go down to Yokohama Arena for Lady Gaga’s concert in Summer 2010. That was really a packed, colorful, fun spectacle. Lady Gaga is phenomenal. She’s got a great voice, can really dance, plays several instruments, and has endless energy and a wonderful warm stage presence. On top of all that, her fashion is original, off the wall, and really works for her. It’s easy to see how she’s earned international recognition and fame in such a short time.
Her concert was one of the very best I’ve seen in a long time. It’s too bad she couldn’t get to the New Lex, but we did have her entire band and dancers drop by a few times and party into the early mornings. They were all great people.
The legendary Dr. Eugene Aksenoff is called the celebrity doctor as he takes care of most of the superstars who need medical attention when they’re in Tokyo. Patients at one time included Brad Pitt (just a cold), Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga, who’s rumored to have gotten a quick shot in the butt! (But you didn’t read it here!)
