Steve Hillage Explains Why YouTube Pulled 'Hinotori' Video
Hillage, one of the original members of the British prog rock band Gong, has released a statement explaining why the video was removed from the streaming site.
"Tezuka Productions, the Japanese company that manages the Tezuka creative legacy, demanded a change in the precise wording of the copyright notice after the end of the video. This has now been resolved. Our Japanese video production company wish to apologise for the temporary YouTube removal."
The album, produced by Steve Hillage and Rovo, is followed by concerts at Manchester Ritz (March 7) and London o2 Shepherd's Bush Empire (March 8).
Yesterday, the video, directed by Tokyo's Mood Magic, has been re-uploaded on YouTube. Watch the video here.
