From Mike Stern

To all my friends in Japan and all my friends at Yamaha,

I want to extend my deepest sympathy to all for the ongoing tragedy you are experiencing from the earthquake and Tsunami.

Your courage has inspired me and I'm sure the rest of the world in the face of such great adversity. This courage that you display does not surprise me.
I've had the pleasure and the honor of playing my music in Japan many times, about 30 or more trips. Every time I've been in your country the people have
been kind, thoughtful, sensitive, hard working and very courageous. I know you will get through these very hard challenges that are in front of you. Your
strength is always an inspiration to me, to my friends in the United States and to the rest of the world.


Mike Stern
