Today is a sad day. I awoke to the news that my friend Ryoske from the band Kemuri was killed in a traffic accident yesterday. The band was on tour in Japan and were driving to the next city when the accident occured. The drummer Shoji was also in the vehicle and is in critical condition. My thoughts, my prayers, my love goes out to the band, their families, and everyone who loved this band. I had the priviledge of producing their first record back in 1997 and wrote songs on their first three records. They were great people who had a message of positivity. They coined the phrase PMA(positive mental attitude) as their motto for the band. The crowds they attracted were so dedicated. I don't know what to say. I'm in shock right now. I will be in Japan in a few weeks and Kemuri was supposed to play with MU330 in Tokyo. Well, I just needed to share this news as it is important to me. Be safe everyone.

Peace always,
