I just heard the news that the Jasmine You, the bassist of Versailles, passed away this morning. I'm... in shock. When I clicked the cut to the news post, I was expecting to hear the norm "bad news" for a Jrock band: they're going on hiatus, breaking up, something like that. Not that he's actually dead.
I've fallen mostly out of Jrock, but for a band I used to love dearly, and still enjoy, this is very, very heartbreaking. He wasn't my favorite member or anything like that, but I did love him, and had done so from his days in Hizaki Grace Project. He always seemed like such a beautiful and composed person. I used to have a video of him smiling and laughing and playing with other members of the band, and it made me happy, too, to watch that. I don't know where it is anymore. I'll have to look for it later, but now, I have a hard time looking at him without crying.
I just hope he's been taken to a better place now. He deserves it. I sincerely wish his family and the rest of the band the best of luck in coping with his death.
Rest in peace, Jasmine You.
You won't be forgotten.
