Heard a gossip few days ago, but I thought it was joke or something :sob:

Wow what the hell…

Damn, that’s a shock. Seems he died from an accident.

Did a search for Issay on twitter an am surprised by the outpouring of love from foreign fans. Didn’t realize he had much of a following outside Japan.
