Jesus, now that shit's depressing...
It's hard to accept whats happened to the singer of my favorite band. Goddamn cult fucked with his head.
Heh, and I thought Ryuichi's solo stuff was bad.

He has a place in LA (Or somewhere in CA) :) He was at one of the premieres for... Pirates, maybe? The first one... I don't remember! It was for something, but yeah.. He's going to be one of the music guests for one of the August cons

Ok... rumor has it that X is going to return! Yoshiki, Pata, Heath, and Toshi with Sugizo (LUNA SEA) filling in for hide. This news apparently comes from Heath's fan club.
They will play the Budokan on February 11. One night only. God, those tickets will go for $5,000 on yahoo auctions. And I'll be bidding on one.
Now, I couldn't think of anyone more appropriate to fill in for hide than Sugizo.  
But I just can't believe that Toshi would have any part of this. The article says he hasn't signed up yet.
Here's the site:

I would love it if someone could translate it.

ooh nice, with Sugizo. that would be pretty damn awesome... It says Luna Sea have plans to comeback too? o_O

I think it says they're doing this because they're running out of money. There's a quote that talks about Yoshiki's crazy spending in America :lol:

I personally wouldn't get my hopes up on this >_>

What?! Yoshiki whoring out his band for money? You must be kidding.
Yeah, like I said, it's all a rumor. Plus, I'm 99.99% sure Toshi would never do it.  If anything, it might just be collaboration between the two bands for fun. Although, it would be badass to hear Ryuichi singing X songs!

Someone please tell me I read that wrong and Gackt isn't the vocalist of the X reunion thing?
I literally yelled "NOOOOO!!" when I saw that. Plus, I think I threw up in my mouth a little. I've lost all faith in Yoshiki. I'm so fucking disgusted over this bullshit. God, I hope this fails and never happens.
Fuck you Yoshiki. You piece of shit.

X-Japan is my fav rock band... so the song Art Of Life (the studio and live versions) is my fav song.... I agree with mikitty.. Art Of Life is a master piece... X-Japan was unique.... one of the greatest ever...

Art of life would've been better half of the length they made it IMO, they stretched it too long and it just got boring.

maybe you're right ... The first time I listen to it I really think the same.... too long the piano solo.... no good the melodical thingy, but wait a minute... I realized that is like a metaphor of life.... All the lyrics are complement with all the music and melodical solos... so the piano part is like a part of the life itself... expresed like that.... very sad moments... desesperate... angry... confusion.... is like all the bad-sad moments we lived are there....
