That Rookie Fiddler…

Probably most known as the super happy violinist in the Japanese jrock band A (エース), Anonymous confederate ensemble!

Born: January 25th.
Blood type: O

Some quotes from an interview:

Question: Could you tell us a little about your two violins? Brand/model etc. What are they key points of each?
Rookie: My two violins have names. “Adam” is a Bohemian violin over a hundred years old that I use mainly for ballads. “Eve” is an electric violin that was made just for me and I use it for the heavier songs.

Question: Was that the strangest thing you’ve ever put in your mouth? Can any of the other members beat that?
Rookie: When I was a child, I once drank bubble blowing solution. (laugh)

Question: Did you have any personal input in the design of your costumes? What are your favorite points of each costume?
Rookie: Showing your thighs is a tradition called “Absolute Territory” in VK. When told that one of the members should absolutely show their thighs, I undertook the task. There’s a lot of exposure in this outfit and it’s a little feminine but I don’t feel embarrassment.

Question: What would be your buried treasure?
Rookie: Letters and presents from Heartys! They’re more important to me than my violins. (Heartys is fans of A (エース))

You can get an insight of Rookie Fiddlers happy presence in this videoclip from last year in which he answers questions. I promise you, you can’t help but smiling when you see him.


And this is a video clip I took myself when watching A (エース) perform at Närcon, Sweden, July 26th 2012. They played the opening theme from the anime Neon Genisis Evangelion (“A cruel angel’s thesis”). I just love to watch Rookie Fiddler headbang while playing the violin and jumping around like a rabbit on crack. XD Especially after 2.25.

It was Nyanko Scandal Factory that brought them to Sweden and if you want to see more phootage from this concert, please visit: Gallery: A (ace) July 27th 2012

It would be lovely to seem them soon again, by the way. Rookie Fiddler surely puts a smile on your lips. He’s such a charming persona. ^^

And finally, here’s one of my favorite songs with A (エース). 🙂 Makes you wanna dance, right?

Welcome! This is not an actual news site but a personal blog, run by an ordinary person who loves visual kei. This is my space where I ventilate thoughts and values and shares happenings within the scene. My goal is to make information easy to access and to support artists and movements that I admire.
