When, checking out some old Japanese pop songs on youtube the other day, we found out, one of this guy I know from university, his mum is the lead singer of a late 70s~early 80s Japanese pop girl band. (She was like on TV and everything). So, we went to ask him. It turns out, his mum and one of her friend, got a record contract when they were in university, after winning a singing competition and released two albums, but left TV a few years after graduating from university. He said it is pretty weird, he still some time sees his mum's 80s performance on TV, put on Youtube sometime.
