Mike Groves Loses Track Of Time In Tokyo Subway

February 4th, 2013 -Tokyo

Mike Groves (28) was found deep asleep while holding a cord on his guitar and lost a track of time in Tokyo Subway. Mr. Groves didn’t know where he was, who he was, and what time it was when he woke up. “When I woke up, the train was stopping at Shinjuku station again. I saw my watch and it said it was 9 o’clock. But I couldn’t tell if it was 9 in the morning or 9 at night because I can’t see the sun in the subway,” he says.

The incident happened when he was on Toei Shinjuku Line. He transferred from JR Line to Toei Shinjuku Line at Shinjuku station. His destination was Ichigaya, only 3 stations away from Shinjuku. This means he started to writing a song in a empty train and fell fast asleep in approximately about 5 minutes. He doesn’t remember neither what cord he was holding down nor a new song he was writing. The witnesses, a station worker and high school girls, said that he was snoring with high intensity.

Mr. Groves was exhausted from writing songs for his music project The Sound Grove non-stop for about 2 days while managing his podcast that features San Diego local musicians. “Tokyo is a rough city,” he says.
