Sim from Cleveland RocksBill Wyman one of the most underrated bass players in the history of music. Killer bass on this song.
David from Sussex, NjAnother excellent book where Issei Saawa's crime is told is in John Dunning's Madly Murderous under the title "Linguistic Misunderstanding"
Matt from Boston, MaThe worst part of this is that he is now free and considered a sort of quasi-celebrity in Japan. He has given interviews where he tells what happened.
"Truth is stranger than fiction."
Craig from Melbourne, AustraliaA great, fun song. Hilarious "rapping" by Jagger. The video for it is brilliant. No one can match this band.
Eden from Bismarck, NdAlso, Issei did not bury the bones, he put them in a suitcase (If I remember right he also had parts of her body in there as well) and was going to through it in the river but realized a couple was watching him, scared he quickly hid it under a bush. Not surprisingly the couple contacted authorities.
Stefano from Old Bridge, NjIssei Sagawa's victim was NOT his girlfriend; she was a fellow college student in Paris of Dutch origin with whom he became acquainted. He was attracted to her purely based on his cannibalistic sexual fetish, but he later found out that she had had some romantic feelings for him, which contributed to his deep retrospective regret over his crime. An excellent account of Sagawa's experiences can be found in an essay by popular counterculture British psychologist/author Colin Wilson, entitled "The Strange Crime of Issei Sagawa", printed in the excellent book Apocalypse Culture II, edited by Adam Parfrey (Feral House, 2000).
David Bowie's "Space Oddity" tells the story of an astronaut who cuts off communication and floats into space. The BBC used it extensively in their coverage of the 1969 moon landing - an odd choice considering the lyrics.
