こいつにオオハマリ



こういう音だけは、一生聞かないだろうと思っていたはずが、完全にやられっぱなし。

体が勝手に揺れる始末。

Acid JazzやらHouseやらジャンル超越してるわ。

踊れてなんぼだよな、結局。

Afro BeatやGospel ,Latin,bossa,Funk ,Jazz,Hip-Hop。。。。

おれの心をワシつかむ音楽がこの世にはまだまだ溢れている。

No Music No Life

R.I.P GURU

Nujabesに続き、今度はGuruが亡くなった。

昏睡状態から抜け出したという情報がTwitterで話題になってから一ヶ月くらいたっただろうか。

悲しい。

しかし、今回はなんだか気がかりな事がある。

それが↓のメッセージだ。

じっくり読んでほしい。



以下はGURUが亡くなる前にファンの為に書いた手紙です。

俺グールーは世界中のファンのみんな、友達、愛する人達へむけて手紙を書いてます。
私は1年以上いろんな治療をうけてずっとガンという病気と戦ってきたけど、どうやら負けてしまったようだ。私の命を奪ったこの病気から子供たちを守る為の非営利団体Each One Countsも立ち上げた。今この手紙を涙を流しながら書いている。でも悲しみの涙じゃない。私のすばらしい人生に対する喜び、今まで出会えたすばらしい人達との出会いに対するものだ。私の親友ソーラーには本当に感謝してる。病気が発覚してからずっと一緒にいてくれたのはソーラーだけだ。自分で自分の世話ができなくなった後いつも俺の世話をしてくれたのはソーラーだった。ソーラーとソーラーのファミリーが俺のファミリーだ。自分の家族にも、友達もファンのみんなも私がソーラーの事をそれくらいリスペクトしてるってことをわかってほしい。息子のKCにも自分ですべてを判断できるようになるまでは私の信頼するソーラーに従うよう伝えた。私の元DJには今後私の名前を使って一切のトリビュート、イベントをする事を禁止する。この事は弁護士にも伝えてある。彼とはもう7年間も何もしてない。私の死を機に彼と何かをする事は望んでいない。GangStarrとしての活動、作品には誇りをもっている。同様にJazzmatazでの作品にもとても満足している。ヒップホップ・ジャズというカテゴリーを引っ張ってこれた自分のリーダーシップを私はとても誇りに思ってる。私の人生の最高の時間に作ってきた音楽が今後もいっそうそれに見合った評価を受ける事を望んでいる。

I, Guru, am writing this letter to my fans, friends and loved ones around the world. I have had a long battle with cancer and have succumbed to the disease. I have suffered with this illness for over a year. I have exhausted all medical options. I have a non-profit organization called Each One Counts dedicated to carrying on my charitable work on behalf of abused and disadvantaged children from around the world and also to educate and research a cure for this terrible disease that took my life. I write this with tears in my eyes, not of sorrow but of joy for what a wonderful life I have enjoyed and how many great people I have had the pleasure of meeting. My loyal best friend, partner and brother, Solar, has been at my side through it all and has been made my health proxy by myself on all matters relating to myself. He has been with me by my side on my many hospital stays, operations, doctors visits and stayed with me at my home and cared for me when I could not care for myself. Solar and his family is my family and I love them dearly and I expect my family, friends, and fans to respect that, regardless to anybody’s feelings on the matter. It is my wish that counts. This being said I am survived by the love of my life, my sun KC, who I trust will be looked after by Solar and his family as their own. Any awards or tributes should be accepted, organized approved by Solar on behalf myself and my son until he is of age to except on his own. I do not wish my ex-DJ to have anything to do with my name likeness, events tributes etc. connected in anyway to my situation including any use of my name or circumstance for any reason and I have instructed my lawyers to enforce this. I had nothing to do with him in life for over 7 years and want nothing to do with him in death. Solar has my life story and is well informed on my family situation, as well as the real reason for separating from my ex-DJ. As the sole founder of GangStarr, I am very proud of what GangStarr has meant to the music world and fans. I equally am proud of my Jazzmatazz series and as the father of Hip-Hop/Jazz. I am most proud of my leadership and pioneering efforts on Jazzmatazz 4 for reinvigorating the Hip-Hop/Jazz genre in a time when music quality has reached an all time low. Solar and I have toured in places that I have never been before with GangStarr or Jazzmatatazz and we gained a reputation for being the best on the planet at Hip-Hop/Jazz, as well as the biggest and most influential Hip-Hop/Jazz record with Jazzmatazz 4 of the decade to now. The work I have done with Solar represents a legacy far beyond its time. And we as a team were not afraid to push the envelope. To me this is what true artists do! As men of honor we stood tall in the face of small mindedness, greed, and ignorance. As we fought for music and integrity at the cost of not earning millions and for this I will always be happy and proud, and would like to thank the million fans who have seen us perform over the years from all over the world. The work I have done with Solar represents a legacy far beyond its time and is my most creative and experimental to date. I hope that our music will receive the attention it deserves as it is some of the best work I have done and represents some of the best years of my life.





と、いうわけだが、DJ PREMIREに対して死ぬ間際にここまで書くだろうか。

SOLARが牛耳ってる感がぷんぷんしとるのはおれだけか?
