Yoshiyuki Ran, the leader and drummer of the veteran rock band Yokohama Ginbae, died of pneumonia on July 4. He was 67.
The funeral service for Ran, whose real name is Yoshiyuki Tamiya, was held for close relatives only.
Yokohama Ginbae debuted in 1980 with the single "Yokosuka Baby," and grew wildly popular for its signature "delinquent lads" image. Their greatest hits include "Tsuppari High School Rock'n Roll," released in 1981.
