1. globe is a dance-oriented Japanese pop band, formed in Tokyo, Japan, in 1995 by legendary producer and songwriter Tetsuya Komuro (小室哲哉). Originally consisting of Komuro, Keiko Yamada and Marc Panther, the group has been another triumph in a long line of successes associated with Komuro, with its singles consistently hitting the charts even to the present day. In 2002 YOSHIKI from X JAPAN joined the group, alternately playing drums, keyboards, piano and guitar.
Their debut album, globe, sold over 4 million copies, and the band was awarded the Japanese record industry's highest honor for their single "wanna Be A Dreammaker." After a two-year hiatus (in which time Tetsuya Komuro and Keiko got married), globe released a new single entitled Here I Am on June 29, 2005. A new album, globe2 pop/rock was released on August 10, 2005, in commemoration of their 10-year anniversary. Komuro also mentioned there will be some collaboration work with other artists with the artist title of globe feat. XX (where XX is the artist name), and globe extreme for collaboration with YOSHIKI.
2. globe was a hard rock formation from Hooglede, Belgium with ex-members of Billy The Kid & Crush. They made one album 'The other side' and then split up. Now, Ronald Klaassen is drumming in BON G.O.V..
