Unless you are into "heavy metal", the name, Marty Friedman will not ring any bells. He is well known for his guitar skills and has played with bands such as Megadeth and Cacophony. In 1999 he relocated to Japan where his career as a musician, producer and media personality has been very successful.
So why am I telling you this?
It is a preface to the video Arutz 7 posted of his performance (his third in Israel) in Tel Aviv on the 31st of May.
His stylized version of Hatikva was a real crowd pleaser--and you don't have to be a heavy metal fan to enjoy it.
Just goes to show you, Israelis will always sing along to their National Anthem and this crowd was no exception. Not bad at all...
