VISUAL KEI GUITARIST JIMI PLAYING SHIBUYA 109: SONY MUSIC J-ROCKER BECCA.

Emo goth musician pretty boy with long hair, guitar pick in mouth. Jimi or James Blumer, Elec from Visual Kei band Laverite, model and blogger of Rock Japan Elec-tric, playing guitar at Shibuya 109, Tokyo, Japan.

Every so often, a J-rock idol will hold a free concert outside Shibuya 109 (the trendy fashion complex favored by Japanese teens). Yesterday, a murder of squealing gals came for a glimpse of
Man Heaven…

Japanese gaijin guitarist, pretty young male musician with earrings and long Sony Music artist BECCA or ベッカ, becca-chan live concert and pop rock showcase at Shibuya 109, Tokyo, Japan.

Doesn’t he look positively Japanese in the left photo?

All right, Jimi was there to play guitar for Sony Music Japan pop-rocker BECCA | ベッカ. The turnout was grand and spilled out into the street, making it difficult to take photos. Plus, security was ridiculously strict, lashing out at me for having a camera and refusing to let Jimi go anywhere alone… not even to the bathroom!

Still, I managed a few decent shots. Screaming teenage Japanese schoolgirl at your feet? Just a typical day in the life.

Jimi is in Becca-chan’s latest music video, “Alive,” which is getting major screen-time on MTV Japan. He’s also in the new Tommy Heavenly6 PV, “Papermoon,” – dressed as the Scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz! You can follow his musical adventures on his blog, Rock Japan Elec-tric.

    Yeah, THERE HE IS AGAIN! XDD
    I found him on Youtube, at his channel… ^^;;
    Really, it was there where I found his blog, and from that time I have been reading it… ^^ It's really interesting!! =O
    I came to know he plays guitar in his band “Laverite”…

    He's such a normal and cool guy though. I really look up to him, being non-japanese but making it so far there in the japanese music industry.

    Thanks for writing this! (^_^)

    Oh wait, doesn't he play bass too? Oo;; *confused*

  24. Posted November 5, 2008 at 5:14 am | Permalink
