Sadly, it appears Yoshitaka Azuma died of pneumonia in October.

http://www.asahi.com/obituaries/upda...211300209.html

"Yoshitaka Azuma, composer and synthesist, died of pneumonia on October 11 at the age of 64. A funeral was held privately. He is survived by his son Shotaro.

He was active in the folk group 'Itsutsu no akai fuusen'. Amongst his work after the group's breakup, he provided music for the NHK program 'Kokuhou e no tabi' and for the opening ceremony for the Kyocera Dome Osaka."

What a shame, I'll always remember Panzer Dragoon's soundtrack as one of the highlights of the Saturn era.

I'm not a fan of expiredate, expiremonth, expireyear values in the history page
sounds like food, or meat

AZUMA's birth year is given as 1947 in Tokyo Dungeon, but every other profile I can find (like this good one) gives it as 1948 so that seems right.

I don't know where the specific April 12 birthday comes from though, it was added to JP Wikipedia without a source.
