He is one of the pioneers of electric sound in Japan. He was a member of YMO, a popular music group in 1980s.
I loved YMO when I was young. They were cool guys among young people at that time. Even after I grew up, I listened to their music again and again.
Time has past and young men have become old men.
Ryuichi Sakamoto is 60 year's old now. Although he loses his good looks, his musical talent never gives out.
The following music crip is the recent YMO's performance.
Recently, he often attends the anti-nuclear demonstration. The other day, he came back to Japan from New York and attended the anti-nuclear demo in front of the Prime Minister's Official Residence.
I respect his action. However, I didn't think that he was the type of man who attend such a demonstration. Almost all public entertainers keep silence about nuclear power plants in Japan.
Because they know that if they attend anti-nuclear demonstration, they will have their livelihood taken away. Sad to say, this is the bad side of Japanese society.
