Dreams do come true. Shintaro was once just a roadie for Dear Loving. A roadie with his own fans but still a roadie. Now however he is more than a mere roadie, he is in a band of his own! He plays guitar in Happy Trigger. He seems to be going by the name Taro now although Dear Loving fans tend to call him Shin-chan. With the sucess of his band I don't know how much longer Shintaro will be helping Dear Loving but best of luck in whatever he does. He's a really sweet guy.
