babel_noize, this is really good to know. actually i think the reason AYA was never a real success is because she is a girl who really did heavy and agressive music, unlike all female rockers in general, specially in Japan. I mean, i love Shiina Ringo, Stereopony, YUI and stuff like that, but we would never see them playing a song like 1999 or Shelter. And the only live video of AYA that is available on Youtube show a really raw sound, which is not usual too for popular artists. Let's hope for the best, would be amazing, specially knowing she is not dead.
