Leader of the group.(just to make sure) Impressed by Oscar Peterson’s performance, started to play the piano at the age of 18. First a beginner playing with one finger, now a unique piano player, taking charge of every lyric and music-composed for Fuumido.
First music route was heavy-metal and convinced that music other than heavy-metal is not music. Not to mention, a good driver with strong traffic ethics. A hard-headed guy for any wrong morals, but at the same time, has an unlooked-for side.
Toriguchi John Masaya
Has experience in a wide-range of music such as heavy-metal, hard-rock, and fusion, also interested in other instruments such as guitar and trumpet. Plus, has manifold hobbies such as watching movies, playing at dams and going out-doors. Biker with a large-size motorcycle license.
Formed ‘Fuumido’ in October. Watari met with Nakatomi from the recruitment notice that Nakatomi had posted at a studio in Fukuoka. The two got along well and decided to look for other members.
Finally, Toriguchi, the bassist, entered the group, forming guitar-less trio.
