A Big Day for Death

Guitar Wolf bassist suffers fatal heart attack

Hideaki Sekiguchi a.k.a. Billy a.k.a. Bass Wolf of Japanese psychobilly band Guitar Wolf passed away this morning. He was 38. A punk trio obsessed with flames, leather, and motorcycles, Guitar Wolf signed with Matador Records in 1999 and released Jet Generation, supposedly the loudest album of all time. If bleeding eardrums aren't your idea of quality mourning, hunt down a copy of Wild Zero, the greatest Japanese rock 'n' roll zombie flick featuring Guitar Wolf ever made.
