Condolence & Memory Journal

In very short time I've been aware of Mr. Fujiko's music, a week and a half, I've become a huge fan. Not only did he have the ability to shred being second to none, he had style and the ability to play BEAUTIFUL melodies, jam some great jazz licks with a bit a shredability mixed in. A true master!!!

Although I don't know much about him as a person, by watching his interaction with people, and his spectacular smile, I get the feeling he was a gentle humble soul.

Rest In Peace honorable Fujikosan. Wish I'd AT LEAST had the chance to see you play live, but would have loved to be able to sit and have conversation with you.

A beautiful soul and amazing talent! I, like so many others, just found him and was an instant fan! You can see his love for music in every performance! It feels like there is an empty space in music without him, but what he gave to the world with his time, his teaching and his talent is a blessing for all who love music. You will be missed, Fujioka-san, but honored and remembered always.

Mikio had a pleasant stage presence and was always interacting with audience even though he was in the back line of stage. His playing was a masterful. A combination of Jeff Beck tremelo arm control with the flourish of sweep picking & clear fretting. An extremely versatile guitarist who played in many genres of music. Sincere condolences to his family & young family.

Mikio, I hope you can read this from Heaven. I had the fortunate luck to see you two years ago in Los Angeles along with the rest of the band, and it was a great experience. I know you would want the band to continue and you are an inspiration to many people. I hope you jam with Lemmy, Dio and all the greats in Heaven, my friend. I'll meet you one day.
