The ONE OK ROCK formation dates back to the time when Toru Yamashita, a student, decided to form a band. He asks Ryota Kohama, a member like him of hip-hop dance group Heads, to learn bass and Alex Onizawa to join them. He will ask his classmate, Yu, to play the drums. At that time, Taka Moriuchi was playing in another local band called Chivalry of Music; however, Taka did not enjoy playing with them, and Toru insists he should join him at ONE OK ROCK instead. After signing with the label Amuse, Inc. (A-Sketch), Yu leaves the band to pursue an acting career as his parents wanted. Tomoya Kanki teaches at ESP (Musical Academy) and was already in a group that was not doing well. He joined ONE OK ROCK in 2006, but only became an official member in early 2007 >>>.
