Aerosmith “We were uneasy about the radiation during Japan tour in 2011. …It was pretty scary.”

An American rock band, Aerosmith confessed that they were worried about radiation during the Japan tour in 2011. They talked to “Rolling Stone” in July 2013.


They held Japan tour from November to December 2011, when was only 8 ~ 9 months after 311.

The guitarist Joe Perry commented, “We were uneasy about radiation.” He talked, they made sure to bring Geiger counter and watched the radiation levels, which was very frightening.

He added, Japanese people are now living with it everyday though people don’t think about that in America, and CNN doesn’t really report about it.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
