Good luck to him.

I remember watching YMO at the Bottom Line in the Village in the mid 70s. Sakamoto has contributed a lot to music in Japan and the world. Best wishes to him.

I am only really familiar with Ryuichi Sakamoto collaboration with David Sylvian.

Yeah, Sylvian and Sakamoto in the early 80s was my first introduction to him. I subsequently went on to discover his solo work and YMO (my first exposure to YMO being the loading screen music for Daley Thompson's Decalthlon on the Commodore 64).

Anyway, Mr Sakamoto's not dead yet. Hope his remaining time on the planet is as comfortable as it can be.
