According to an article in Tokyo Sports (published on October 24th 2015), Kaoru (leader and guitist of Dir En Grey) has announced that he suffers from dysfunction and nerve paralysis in his right hand.
Already back in 2014 he noticed a strange feeling in his index finger and started to drop guitar picks during concerts. He fixed it by attaching the pick to his hand with double sided tape, but when the tour was over he couldn’t even hold a pick at all.
Even though Kaoru went to doctors and tried several treatments, the weakness spread to his thumb and other fingers as well. Doctors explained that the ligaments connecting tendons and joints have become loose.
However, Kaoru seems remarkably cool about the situation and claims that he will be patient and wait for it to heal.
I truly hope it will! Stay strong Kaoru!
