Yukihiro Takahashi – Drip Dry Eyes (R.I.P.)

The eyes in this house aren’t very dry at the moment.  We lost yet another legend today.  This time, it was the shocking, though not unexpected, passing of drummer and composer Yuki Takahashi, who made his fame as drummer and singer of the Yellow Magic Orchestra.  He first gained fame with the Sadistic Mika Band, which would evolve into The Sadistics before moving on to making solo albums, then YMO, and collaborations with British artists Bill Nelson and Steve Jansen.  He leaves a massive body of work, most of which still needs an assessment outside of Japan.
