I’m very sad! Rest in peace my little Jekyll. :sob:

RIP :cry:

This is so fucking disheartening. Jekyll has been around for so long, it’s like we lost a legend. I was never really into Elm and I never listened to his past bands, but I could tell the dude was fucking committed to his craft. I remember when he posted his flyer collection on twitter and I got super jealous of rare ones he had of After effect and other small 90s bands.

I need to give Elm another try. This fucking sucks.

What kind of illness? Any details? I don’t speak much Japanese so I can’t read anything about it.

It doesn’t say anything other than he died suddenly “due to illness.” Let’s not speculate and just be mournful and remember a man who’s had a long career in the industry.
