Rollins might be better.

 

But I am splitting hairs Sakamoto is a fantastic edition.

Excellent choice.

 

The news about his cancer broke out at the right time.

Agreed. He has an Oscar and a Grammy and he has considerable influence outside of his home country; don't think you can make much of an argument for the others.

Poor choice; it’s the type of pick a novice makes all excitedly upon seeing a headline without anything further.  I see well-respected DLers calling this a good pick and I know not what to say other than we shall agree to disagree.  
I hereby promise to put Sakamoto as my #1 Inverse DP selection, and should he die I will send 5 pounds of coffee to all who leave him off their Inverse teams cuz they knew better than Sir Creep.

I don’t think he is as dead cert as people are saying, but definitely a good choice.

What makes me think he’s a dead cert is the fact that in his most recent “concert” he literally had to record them in multiple different sessions rather than just a single take. That shows he’s weakening

He has stage 4 rectal cancer since at least October 2021 when he had surgery for metastatic bilateral lung cancer.As Joey said above he is losing strength and has said his last "concert" which was a compilation may well be his last.

Stage 4 colerectal cancer has a 14% survival rate of 5 years and Sakamoto has had that for at least 15 months and is clearly winding down based on recent statements.

Aah fair enough actually, I didn't know that about the concert. Sounds like he hasn't got long at all.

I’d say Harris is the best newcomer.

 

Sakamoto is actually the only candidate on this year’s DL, who I had never heard of before. Still a great pick I’m gathering, all he needs is a BBC obit or in some cases not even that!
