    When I first heard BABYMETAL I thought it was a kitsch track act. After a few videos of seeing the Kami band actually playing that stuff I thought was sequenced tracks, they earned my respect. Everyone in that band is an ass-kicking machine. I am sorry to see Mikio go.

    Plenty of love and respect here. He's sorely missed in Japan. Truly a genius on his instrument. Thanks for sharing the vids.
