Happy 51st birthday to Granrodeo’s maestro! Yesterday he visited the ESP e-zuka Museum, where he received a cake designed to look like a plate of curry, a nice card from Kiiyan and an ESP “らぶちゃき” (Love Chaki) guitar from the Ro-gumi members. The guitar is currently on display at the ESP museum, for those who’d like to see it.
