VK no longer smells like Jasmine

Jasmine You

Versailles basist, Jasmine You, passed away yesterday morning. All band activites will be on hold till further notice. Cause of death is unknown at the present time. Until the news gives out anymore info, this is all you guys get.

The VK world has lost another soul. Expect to see a lot of “hide”, “kazuki” and “kami” scenes again. I’ll honestly say I don’t listen to the band, but I did listen to Lareine, Kamijo’s old band. I’ll be honest, I won’t miss Jasmine either. I didn’t know him, and I’m sure all the J-Rock fans will cry and be depressed and say stuff how they were touched by him in some way. But let’s be honest folks, he played bass, and half of you probably didn’t even notice him till now. As we all know bassists are hardly ever noticed because the spotlight is taken by the vocal or guitarist, and unless Jasmine was “hot” (which I doubt he was), I don’t think he had many fans. You all can say I’m being mean, but you all know I’m right.

But my condolences to his family and the band members. Take care Jasmine, you’re probably happier now that you don’t have to deal with life.
