Where did all the colors go? ^^
Already in March, the visual kei band Souiumono announced that they might fire their guitarist Hirobucky after their one-man live at Shinjuku BLAZE at August 24th since he isn’t “skilled enough”.
There was a catch though, which was described in the March 2014 issue of “Men’s Spider”. If Hirobucky received 1000 or more petition letters/post cards with messaged like “please stay” or “you can do it” before August 24th – he will stay in the band.
The band has now announced that Hirobucky has received 1017 letters, which means he will not be kicked out.
Quite funny PR trick I believe. ^_-
