  • Interview with Rob Herrera, On-Camera Music Host (June 9, 2020) - Being a fan of a relatively niche band is tough, and even more so when they’re not from your country. We appreciate anyone who can bring us new content in a language we can understand, and Rob Herrera of Front Row Live Ent. is one such person. His interactions with ONE OK ROCK over the years has helped bring us closer to the band.
  • Interview with Jamie Carter, Videographer and Photographer (November 1, 2019) - Director. Editor. Videographer. Photographer. Based in London and Essex in the UK, Jamie Carter is a man with many titles. In recent years, his photos and videos have become an integral part of documenting ONE OK ROCK’s journey when they tour in Europe. Jamie also contributed to NHK’s documentary program, ONE OK ROCK World Tour Document, which aired on October 19, 2019.
  • Interview with KENTA MORI, Graphic Designer (October 9, 2019) - You may not be familiar with his name but his designs are instantly recognizable to any ONE OK ROCK fan. From those Nagisaen triangles to the recent “with Orchestra Japan Tour” logo, KENTA MORI is the man behind of some of the band’s most iconic designs. He was kind enough to answer a few of my questions about his work.
  • Interview with JulenPhoto + Tour Dreams Book Review (July 29, 2019) - The man needs no introduction. If you follow ONE OK ROCK in any capacity, you are sure to have seen his photos. Julen Esteban-Pretel (aka JulenPhoto) is beloved among the OORer community as one of ONE OK ROCK’s regular photographers. But did you know that his day job is actually an associate professor in economics in New York? Yeah, I didn’t either.
