The sheer amount of artists this man inspired...! I'm pretty sure a good portion of the bands I listen to wouldn't be as we know them without You. Fuck, the music scene just wouldn't be the same without him. Rest in peace.

Shit....this one is heartbreaking and tragic. I just watched a few of his livestreams he did recently and he was amazing and on-point as always. I even got to say hello to him via the live chat during a steam just to send him some love from a fan outside of Japan. He actually read it, since it was one of the messages in English, and responded a bit.

I'm sure we all have our favorite songs by him. Song of a Lunatic is mine and the extended live performance is one of the rare cases where I believe it rivals the actual studio version. The CD release of this concert has this song going on for longer at 12 minutes and every second of it has always been magic to my ears.
 


Rest in peace Yuji!

That's so crazy, he was rockin' out like a king, then only 2 days later......

I was SO surprised to find he was in good condition a few days ago, how did it come to this... life is so terrifying sometimes.
