It’s been a year since fans everywhere were devastated by this sudden news:
2009.8.9 「Versailles」 Urgent Announcement: Though Jasmine You had taken time off in order to rest because of poor physical condition, we received a report that early in the morning on August 9, he died. Because of the extreme abruptness of this news, the members and staff are all dumbfounded and trying hard to accept this it. As soon as his family has been notified and updated as to the details and we receive their permission, we will further report to all of the fans. Moreover, with the current announcement, in regards to activity, please allow us to postpone it.
To commemorate the first anniversary of the passing of one of visual kei’s most notable bassists, Tokyo Hive reports that a group of Jasmine’s friends will be gathering for a live event. “Dearest You~Gathering of Intimate Friends~” is a free concert to be held at Nagoya Bottom Line and will feature 14 artists namely:
雀羅(Jyakura) / Vogus Image / 凛(Lin) / Seika’s New Band / -S- / Dolly / Freeze(Moran) / 砂月(Satsuki) / cocklobin / Sho-ka / LADY / Schwein / 侍待(muraimachi) / ジ・ハード(Jihad)
Hmmn.. I wonder why Versailles is not on the list.
To Jasmine, your abrupt passing is still a shock. But we’ll always be comforted by the knowledge that you are rocking heaven right now together with rock’s greatest individuals who like you have also moved on.
