About Alan Merrill
Alan Merrill was an American musician, actor and model whose professional music career dates back to the late 1960s. He holds the distinction of being the first musician from the West to actually blow up inside of Japan.
The signature song of his career was “I Love Rock ‘n Roll”. This is a track he co-wrote and originally released as the lead singer of a group called Arrows in 1975. However, the song was later covered by some very popular artists including the 1981 cover version recorded by the popular band, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts.
Between 1974 and 1977, Merrill performed together with the likes of Jake Hooker (a guitarist) and Paul Varley (a drummer), who were both members of the band, Arrows.
Both of his parents, Aaron Sachs and Helen Merrill, were jazz musicians.
His entertainment career took off while he was actually resident in Japan.
Professionally, he opted to operate by the last name Merrill as opposed to Sachs, the surname under which he began his career, as he felt the former was more marketable to the Japanese public.
He died (in March 2020) as a result of contracting coronavirus.
