Unmistakable presence in the Japan celebrity scene. I don't know much of his work, but he seemed like he loved it. RIP.

RIP. As far as Japanese rockers go, Uchida-san was the best and wildest, along with X Japan. Apart from his alleged use of dangerous drugs in the 1970s, he was a Legend.

In both movies, he was....tough.

But didnt know he was rock n roll guy in the reality.

He was up there with Kiyoshiro Imawano in the J-rock scene, and way before X-Japan and L’arc.

RIP.

Don't know much on this guy either but he seems to have really been a super trooper in the J-ROCK scene, a serious contender. Now there are other real J-rockers to keep the flame alive, like the Asian Dub Generation, Boris and Shonen Knife. RIP and Domo Arigato for the music. Enjoy your new home in Rock'n'roll Heaven.
