Origin of the name "B'z"

The origin of the name is a subject of debate among fans, though two explanations have come to light via fan sites, interviews with B'z, and fan discussion. One story says that the band almost went with A'z. This served two purposes: to illustrate their everything-from-A-to-Z variety and to have them be first on alphabetical lists. But because A'z sounded like AIDS, the group decided to use the letter next to A, which is B. During their appearance on a Japanese music program, they were asked why they didn't choose A'z. Koshi Inaba answered, "The pronunciation is not good," supporting this explanation. The other recently revealed explanation is that B'z is short for The Beatles and Led Zeppelin, two of their influences. Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS or Aids) is a collection of symptoms and infections resulting from the specific damage to the immune system caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). ...

-> The showcase 2007 is an unofficial tour they made this year. They visited a few cities (3 to 5) and played to small audiences. A rumor says that this tour was for a practice for the next Live-Gym tour in 2007 or 2008. They played a lot of their old songs. Many of them were rarely played live including their new English song, that was released with Burnout Dominator's soundtrack, "Friction". It is said too that they covered Creedance Clearwater Revival's (CCR) hit song "Have You Ever Seen The Rain".

BZ (3641 words)
The LD50 (lethal dose to 50% of an exposed population) for BZ is estimated to be similar to that of atropine, which is approximately 100 mg.
While BZ was produced at the Pine Bluff Arsenal in Arkansas between 1962 and 1965, it was discontinued from the chemical arsenal in the late 1960's because "its effects on enemy front-line troops would be varied and unpredictable"(WWW1).
Thus while BZ is structurally similar to atropine and scopolamine, and is often compared to the two in terms of its physiological and psychological effects, the possibility exists that pronounced pharmacological differences exist between BZ and other anticholingerics which could limit the value of the comparisons.
3-quinuclidinyl benzilate : BZ (3762 words)
Because BZ is odorless and nonirritating, and because clinical effects are not seen until after a latent period of 30 minutes to 24 hours, exposure could occur without the knowledge of casualties.
Metabolism of BZ would be expected to occur primarily in the liver, with elimination of unchanged agent and metabolites chiefly in the urine.
Clinical effects from ingestion or inhalation of BZ appear after an asymptomatic or latent period that may be as little as 30 minutes, or as long as 20 hours; the usual range is 0.5 to 4 hours, with a mean of 2 hours.
