Munetaka Higuchi of LOUDNESS passes away

It’s a sad day in Jrock today.

Munetaka Higuchi, drummer and co-founder of LOUDNESS, died of liver cancer on November 30th in Osaka, Japan. Seems he had been fighting heartily against it since being diagnosed in March of 2008.

He will be missed, but will continue to rock on in the afterlife.

About Hentai Tenshi

Konnichiwa minna! Hentai Tenshi desu! Douzo yoroshiku! Hajimashite? I live near the West coast, USA. Very much into Jrock and I love to take my son to any and all Jrock shows we can afford to attend! I design SD-13/ABJD clothing as 'The Munk' in the trio of 'Spun~Kei Munkey Designs'. We are also working on designing Jrock, Harajuku freestyle/punk, Goth and Lolita clothes of all kinds for Human sizes. I am a manager of a Japanese Indies band, Street Team president and overall, very busy! But, I love every moment of it! I am learning Japanese and plan to go to Japan someday soon to attend as many Lives as humanly possible of every band that I cannot see in America! One of my jobs here is to find the VK, Jrock and any other artist that catches my fancy -new and old- and interview them, write Live reports and articles to bring them more recognition! I have found a LOT of new bands, and hope to bring them to you! I also have a LOT of interviews and articles in the works, so please check back often! With that, this is your old friend Hentai Tenshi. =3
