Something to add, Toshi got arrested last year for hitting little kids.  He also tries to sing at local bars and clubs.  It's sad to see an artist with world class abilities singing gigs that arent even close to what he can be singing.

X Japan is the greatest rock band ever.  What other band is/ was as versatile as them.  I've never seen a band or heard of a band that can top X.  Yoshiki is a genius and Hide is/was unstopable on the guitar.

Sorry, I got a heated up there cause X Japan is so great.  Anyways, I think they are awesome :x

Hey, sometimes the little brats just need a paddlin'.  Who better than a makeup clad, long haired, high pitched screaming V-Kei singer?

That shit would scare me straight - so no need for the "Toss the salad" man. :P

Don't feel like you have to apologize for being such a big fan of theirs.  We're all fans of our own fave artists/groups, and we're not ashamed of it.  Totally agree about what you said about Yoshiki-san and Hide-san.  When the two of them and Toshi-san worked together, FUCK it was magic!!!  Their type of greatness will never be seen again.

I've been to that museum before. (I went for my friend who asked me to get stuff from there) It was 2 years ago and I already noticed there weren't many people....

I love X-Japan, i think Art of Life is a masterpiece.

I want to visit the hide museum before it closes, hopefully ill go in july.

I have a question tho, do you pronounce 'Hide' as Hi-De the japanese way or 'Hide' the english way?

It's pronounced Hee-De.  At least that's what I was told and that's how I've always pronounced it.

Holy shit man.... I've been there twice and that place is fucking awesome!  I can't believe they are going to close it down.  But it's true, both times I went there only about a handful of people were there.  The first time I tried to go, they were closed for maintenence.  I don't see how that place needs it but yeah.  Shit, I really need to go there then before it closes.

RIP Hideto Matsumoto

Hm. Hard to say the best ever, what with the beatles, etc, and other old bands .. rock's a very large category and it's hard to make such sweeping generalisations, especially in the face of literally billions of Beatles/Stones fans.

Certainly the best heavy rock band. Certainly the best rock band in the last 30 years. Certainly my favourite. Certainly there will never be another band like them, ever.

"Hee-De"???!

It's pronouced the japanese way, as you'd expect, "hi-de" with "hi" as in "hit" and "de" as in "dead".

Anything else is wrong!

i believe "hee-deh" or hee-day" is the correct pronunciation.  The japanese "i" is pronouced like the english letter "e". So "hi" is pronounced "he" (as in male) not "hi" (as in hello)

from: http://wiki.theppn.org/hide

"hide [always spelled with lower case 'h'] (pronounced hee-day, not to be confused with L'Arc~en~ciel's [1] HYDE"

I'm not sure if this is what you were getting at, regardless, X owns  :)

Yoshiki-san is BACK!!!  He was on HEY! HEY! HEY! recently.  Dunno what for yet, haven't finished DL'ing it yet.  Gackt was also a guest on the same episode, apparently.

Finally got around to watching that HEY! HEY! HEY! with Yoshiki and Gackt.  Man, just watching them eat all that food made me hungry, and Iron Chef Sakai personally made one of Yoshiki's chosen dishes!!!  :w00t:  :w00t:  :w00t:  
Fuck I wanna get some of that Yoshiki-brand curry and X-Japan wine!!!

Not to be the jackass that bumps old threads, but today marks the 8th year anniversary of the passing away of Hide.  Still resting in peace, I thought I would use this time to bring up old memories of our fandom?  Continue to rest, Matsumoto san.  I still remember how damn good you were.
