Hiroshi meets “God”,
chats with BUCK-TICK’s Sakurai Atsushi who he has admired for 30 years

15 April 2021



Hiroshi chats with BUCK-TICK’s Sakurai Atsushi on the Saturday, 24 April broadcast of SWITCH Interview Tatsujin-tachi (NHK Educational TV).

This dialogue was brought about by an earnest request which Hiroshi sent Sakurai of BUCK-TICK, the rock band he has admired for the past 30 years. Hiroshi first came to know of BUCK-TICK when he was a freshman in highschool, and ever since then, has thought of lead vocalist and lyricist Sakurai as “God”. He was nervous when they first met, but with Sakurai’s unexpected frankness, the conversation began to flow as they spoke about his childhood musical experiences, his lyrical world, and the messages they hold.

In the second half of the show, Hiroshi teaches Sakurai the art of camping in a mountainous area abundant with nature. The popular personality who broke out with the catchphrase, “I’m Hiroshi,” (ヒロシです) also reveals how he stepped away from TV and got into solo camping.
