Any more info on his death? (and I think the date is wrong unless someone is clairvoyant.)

Yes, sadly his body was found in a hotel room in a popular mountain resort called Karuizawa, last Saturday. He had apparently hanged himself, presumably the day before.

I've changed the date to the 16th for now.

I don't really know, but isn't it a bit rude how the biography currently is?

"Hanged himself on the 16th, October, 2009." <- currently the only thing there...

This reads like: the only meaningful he did in his life was to hang himself.
Either add something about the time where he was alive, or remove the information about the cause of death.

Indeed.

I think people should be more mindful of editorial quality. There's another artist entry whose biography consists of a single-liner on plagiarism. Please don't treat the biography field like the notes field.
