He was leader of one of the best rock bands of the mid-60s. It’s sad to realize a lot of the musicians and actors I grew up listening to and watching are passing away.

Thanks, Jay, for all the great music and memories.

Sunao Tsuboi, Survivor of the First Atomic Bomb dropped on Hiroshima and An Anti-Nuke Activist Dies At Age At Age 96.

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/sunao-ts ... 7357425c04.

TOKYO (AP) — Sunao Tsuboi, a survivor of the Hiroshima atomic bombing who made opposing nuclear weapons the message of his life, including in a meeting with President Barack Obama in 2016, has died. He was 96.

Tsuboi died Oct. 24 in a hospital in Hiroshima in southwestern Japan. The cause of death was given as an irregular heartbeat caused by anemia, Nihon Hidankyo, the nationwide group of atomic bomb survivors he headed until his death, said Wednesday.

When Obama made his historic visit to Hiroshima, Obama and Tsuboi held each other’s hand in a long handshake and shared a laugh. An interpreter stood by. Tsuboi, a gentle yet passionate man, recalled he tried to talk fast, to tell Obama he will be remembered for having listened to atomic bomb survivors, known in Japanese as “hibakusha.”

I think he is such an earnest person or has the heart to feel for others,” Tsuboi said of the first sitting U.S President to visit Hiroshima.
