RIP 158

‪The “Little” Guitar Kami of #BABYMETAL ‘s #Kamiband has passed away in the METAL GALAXIES. We hope that he is now with his GUITAR MASTER A.Holdsworth and enjoying an epic guitar session with him. ‬ ‪We are the one‬ ‪Together‬ ‪We're the only one‬ ‪You are the one‬ ‪Forever‬ ‪#RIP #THEONE ‬

Mikio Fujioka, guitarist for the Japanese metal-pop fusion group Babymetal, has died at the age of 36, according to an official post from the band. Numerous sources including Metro.co.uk and NME report Fujioka died on Jan. 5 from injuries sustained after falling from an observation deck on Dec. 30, though this has not been confirmed by the band.

Sayonara, Smiley Guy. I don't know that I've ever seen anyone who appeared to enjoy playing the guitar more.

Sad, 36 is way too young. RIP.

DAMMIT.

158 is dead and you cannot GET Billy Joel onto a Helicopter. Stevie Ray Vaughn dies... but I swear if you stuck Tim McGraw into a room with 12 kilos of heroine he'd come out with 3 double albums and a dozen garbage singles with over-rated pop stars.

DAMMIT.

Billy Joel helicopters all the time to his regular gig at MSG.

Was Fujioka investigating network of pedos in Japanese music industry? Too soon?

Very sad..guy could play the hell out of a guitar too. Very talented. RIP.

What information did he have that could have led to the arrest of Hillary Clinton?!?!?

Blogger Dave January 09, 2018 5:04 PM  

Did he leak information on Bannon "stepping down" at Breitbart?

Blogger Wynn Lloyd January 09, 2018 5:05 PM  

Very upsetting. I will pray for him.
He's had his own style. That's for sure.

What a great band. Sucks to lose him.

Very sad. Thanks to Vox for pointing out BabyMetal (one of my favourite secret pastimes now), and RIP to a very talented man. Thoughts and prayers for the rest of the band.

A terrible shame. I had 158 in whiteface shredding on the teevee just seconds before I saw this post.

RIP.

A friend of mine teaches music, and it seems to be turning him into a bit of a race realist. He frequently comments that there's just something innate that shows up much, much more often in his Asian pupils where they not only "get" music on a level unattainable to those not born with "the gift," they also enjoy it and love it in a way he just doesn't see from his white students. Very interesting.

RIP, Little One.

Blogger Fenris Wulf January 09, 2018 5:50 PM  

Very sorry to hear that. He reminds me of the guys I work with. I've been fortunate to work with some virtuoso guitarists and I learned a lot about music and tone in the process.

Part of that is just early Tiger Mother "why you no doctor" forced exposure. I had an office mate whose wife taught piano. She only took new students under age six and refused to take non-Chinese students because she knew the parents would force her pupils to practice.

Years later the resentment fades, but the skill doesn't (if you keep playing), and you need to have the skill to "get" music.

of course it does. That's because its a japanese man and you're a marine.

Blogger Ingot9455 January 09, 2018 7:02 PM  

@12 @14 Supposedly, 'perfect pitch' or some level of it, is more common in Chinese due to growing up with a tonal language as their birth language. Might be related.

Guessing that he was a secret ((pedophile)) too? That seems to be the theme here lately.

Sgt. 58,

Not speaking about this particular entertainer, but ...

The Japanese entertainment world is just as overflowing with trannies as the American one is. Of course, they start 'em young as it is part of the ambitious and Satanic crowd's way of doing things. The transhumanist, transgender agenda is nothing new, it's just on steroids now.

And they have lots of fake deaths, too, though nothing could compare with America and Britain. People are blinded by idol worship and can't see that their heroes are not what they seem. The West doesn't have a cuckservative/wimp/SJW problem, it has a spiritual one.

Blogger Revelation Means Hope January 09, 2018 10:39 PM  

What a shame. The Kami band blew away many other wanna be metal bands.

And I don't think there is anything asian about "getting" music. How many billions of chinese and Indians and other asians alive today? How many countless millions play classical instruments? And how many are cranking out fantastic classical music symphonies?

Right.

Being heavily into the classical music scene in silicon valley, where it is about 85% asian, 8% jewish, and the remainder are white and other minorities....there is nothing inherent in this beyond the so difficult puzzle of early exposure and parents who have high expectations that their kids are going to practice and keep playing even when then want to quit sometimes.

What's disgusting to me is how the white people have degenerated from what we once were. Our expectation is two hours of daily practice. Nothing magical about it.

Well you can always listen to that horrific garbage they played during the college National Championship at halftime. Fortunately I was taking a break from the game when that happened.

OT: The Meghan Markle thing is really shaping up to be a horror show for the British royals. I wonder, can love overcome? Well, my the most cynical side of me asks that question, and it knows the answer pretty much.

How do you fall off an "observation" deck? Don't they usually have some form of safety measures built in? I am sure I am not the only one that recalled suicide rates in certain regions after reading about this tragedy.

Kami band is great, Mikio was fantastic. He had so much fun, and it was infectious. This is terrible news. All of Babymetal will be in mourning, and so am I.

RIP Mikio Fujioka. May God bless him, and may he be long remembered for the joy he spread.
