"We regret to inform you that Hideaki Sekiguchi, a.k.a. Billy/Bass Wolf has passed away by heart attack in the morning of March 31st., at the age of 38."
I saw what might have been his last show!
Ahh, it's such a damned shame. This is one Rock & Roll cliche I can do without. Why is it that Steven Tyler still lives and the good ones die? It's a tragedy.
I have a video of his last performance and the smashing of his vintage fender bass. I guess he knew what was coming... somehow.
R.I.P. Billy, you bad ass motherfucker. I hope you're in a better place.
