Naoto Shibata

Real/full name:
61 (born May 10th, 1958)
Place of origin:
Japan (Hokkaidō)


Naoto was diagnosed with stomach cancer in January 2013, but survived.


In 1981 he formed his first band called "Black Hole". Black Hole also included Akifumi Koyanagi, Toshihito Maeda, Rio and Takamasa Ohuchi.
