Yukihiro Takahashi, drummer and lead singer of electronic music pioneers Yellow Magic Orchestra, has died aged 70.
Over on Post-Punk Monk, the blog is turning into a series of obituaries. of late It's sad and sobering.
Damn, I am truly sorry to hear that. Jeff Beck, Yukihiro, and who else? 2023 is not shaping up that great, is it?!
Such sad news.
Ever since I saw YMO at Hammersmith Odeon in 1980, I was a big fan and collected most of the YMO and solo LPs.
Yuki's all had great pop hits on them - he had a terrific voice!
"Disposable Love" is a favourite of mine.
Such a solid, distinctive drum beat and such a funky feel in everything he played on.
Sorry to hear this. What. Me Worry?, is a favorite album of mine!
