I read somewhere he wasn't pleased with the last years of X, because he always wants to get up and tour and be active anx creative. But I'm not sure about it. Maybe it's a false memory..

That’s interesting. I mean, I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the case, very understandable but I’d be surprised that he actually said it! 😄 haha Because in X he always seems to be very passive about criticism and all that.

Yoshiki / Re: Sigh
« on: October 19, 2019, 10:53:06 PM »
That wasn’t a joke, he was saying it was ironic that Yoshiki was talking about food taste when his favorite food was McDonalds but it was serious. I heard it other times, I think the first time I heard it was a written interview probably lol

Exactly my point nb. They should all let Sugizo make the songs and they can just play them  :D ;)

Tragic commercial  :-\ I like McDonalds but was kinda shocked about this collaboration. Does anyone believe Yoshiki ever orders anything from McDonalds at all?

Yoshiki actually loves McDonalds... yup, his favorite meal is McDonald’s morning menu lol they talked about this since the 90’s, so, this one is not too bad tbh.

Let me be completely honest, I don’t have high hopes because Luna Sea’s new material is verh lackluster, aside from a few Sugizo’s songs. Songs like Rough and Yamibi are a standout, those are grata, but A Will was very lame imo and A Luv (cringe) was better but still very mediocre.

I know X Japan has release very few material, but it’s still been higher quality than Luna Sea. There’s no point in releasing a lot of stuff if it’s not good. Sugizo’s songs and his latest solo album was very good, so maybe let him lead both bands? :)

Covers / Re: Nyango Star plays drums. nothing moar
« on: October 18, 2019, 09:23:36 PM »
I’ve said this for years. Why not get this guy to play drums for X? He is awesome AND entertaining? Surely nobody would miss Yo on drums because this guy is too entertaining. Yoshiki could still play piano and X could do other songs that Yoshiki can’t (or don’t want to) play.

He’s actually good. Now he’s old enough to replace Yo-Yo! Then we could actually have a band  ;)

Aoi Yoru/Shiroi Yoru / Re: Least Favourite Performance (Aoi/Shiroi Yoru)
« on: October 18, 2019, 09:05:41 PM »
Let me revive this. Heath’s solo here was 100% better than in X Japan Returns, not my fav performance of the night but not my the worst.
On the other hand, Yoshiki injured his arm right before the concert, in an accident during practice, that’s why he had bandages. I don’t like his drum solos very much but this one was less flashy and more lackluster than the others, so this is one of the worst tracks for me.
Then, hide’s solos, always a hit or miss for me, I keep forgetting which night but one I think I liked night 1 and hated night 2. Yep.

Well, it’s just a commercial. I thought it was funny lol all of them do commercials, Sugizo did Pepsi, Toshi did some pudding shit. Why is it different? Because McDonalds?  :)

Toshi / Re: TOSHI - IM A SINGER Vol. 2
« on: October 17, 2019, 10:10:32 PM »
I said this on discord but lemme repeat this: I Am a Singer Vol 2. Same cover, but in white instead of black. MUCH CREATIVE.

Okay, love you Toshi. Anyway, I really love his cover of the Evangelion OP, it’s really good and most people seem to like it. I don’t know most of the songs but from what I’ve heard, this album seems to be more upbeat than Vol 1.

But Bohemian Rhapsody was a mistake IMO, I think he sounds good in the slow parts but the fast parts aren’t very good. I think he should’ve done We Are The Champions, his cover of that one is actually very good, would’ve been a much better choice.

The first single, the Evangelion OP,  comes out on October 23th, same day Yoshiki McBurger comea out  ;)

Yoshiki / Re: Yoshiki apologized for having dinner with Jackie Chan?
« on: June 15, 2019, 12:40:25 PM »
Yeah but Jackie Chan is not a politician, he’s just an actor, it’s not like he said something about the protests “now”. They were not even in Hong Kong.
Honestly, the kind of hatred I have seen is way too much, like Jackie Chan is Hitler or something like that, they’re even attacking other fans that say “wow cool photo” or “I love Jackie Chan’s movies!”
Yoshiki has pretty much stayed away from making any political statements, he’s also allowed to have dinner with whoever he wants and shouldn’t apologize for this. They were also DEMANDING he had dinner with Taiwan’s President instead, funny because Taiwan’s goverment has been very bad too.

There’re many things you could criticize Yoshiki about but this is not it.

Also,  intercostal neuralgia can be caused by anxiety or severe stress, which totally lines up with his situation back then.

Albums/Singles / Re: X JAPAN New Album(When??)
« on: February 14, 2019, 03:16:27 AM »
Yup, exactly right, Feudal. Besides, some people act like Yoshiki is the only that ever had problems, everyone does but they still have to work and that's not an excuse for all the lies and bait. Yoshiki shared this article on Facebook and 80% of the comments are people upset, disappointed or just saying they gave up, there're a couple of Yoshiki's fangirls saying that if we don't support 100% we are not real fans and he doesn't owe us explanations, etc. and I want to say some of the points that were made by me and the other 100 people. I mean, it's ridiculous that people actually say stuff like "It takes 9 months to make a baby, so it can take 9 years to make an album".

Sorry for the long ass post but I thought some of these were interesting, proved a point, etc.

 -  i meant no disrespect, this is the first time in ever that i replied to a post on Yoshiki's page. But telling people to reconsider their words before they speak and insulting them in the next sentence isnt practising what you preach. We've all been waiting for ages, but his tactic of baiting and baiting without giving is a bad one. At a certain point your public will get tired, restless and walk away. That is both known in marketing and psychology. It's how human nature works and won't lead to the intended result if practiced for too long. There are people voicing that fear and it might not be done in the best manner, but it is their right to do so, blocking them would create a negative ripple in a public that is already feeling negatively influenced by the marketing practiced towards them.
Best actions could be; releasing something new (music), keeping quiet about it for a while or giving the slightest bit of transparency about the situation to try and regain faith and respect from your audience.  Then again I also know that Japanese culture works different than ours and that you don't speak out against someone you look up to and remain quiet about your opinions if they might influence the harmony of others in the public negatively. However as an international artist, your fans from different countries might have different ways resulting in what we now witness.
And this also show the effect people might have on each other as a group and on Yoshiki as a person. This effect devastates me, i love Yoshiki's work and would love to hear more, but fans being torn between complaining/vocalizing and the ones telling them down because of it is ruining it all for some fans. I just want to be the one in the middle, enjoying the music, Yoshiki's posts and interaction between the fans. But the fans are devided, which is not what I would like it to be. Complaining (within measure) is allowed. Measure is decided by Yoshiki. But bashing on the people who complain is ruining things further and should be punished just as hard.

- It’s been 20 years since an album of new music was released and 10 of that it has been finished and collecting dust. Playing MSG was a great time to have released it. Playing Wembley would have been a great time to release. The documentary film release would have been a great time too.

- I just read last night that Def Leppard took 3 years to record Hysteria, which sold more than 25 millions worldwide. A few months in, the drummer, Rick Allen, had an accident and lost his whole left arm and broke his right should pretty badly, but he learned to play again with one arm and came back and did a very long tour. They released Adrenalize 5 years later, also a very succesful album but during the recording, guitarist Steve Clark died. I'm not comparing trying to say something is worse or whatever, but it has to stop. There are no excuses anymore, recording X Japan for 10+ years, Violet UK for almost 20, it doesn't take 10 years to record a good album, it's delusional to say so.

-  it's also disrespectful of yoshiki to not release the album without a valid reason. the perfect moment? is he waiting for an angel choir or Sth? he is dishonest with us. everyone will understand if the album is not ready for whatever reason. being a fan does not mean to tolerate everything. in the end even yoshiki is just a human being and not some form of god. I respect that. but I do not respect to be fooled by him.

Aside from this, many people are just saying they don't believe him or call him a liar. What is the "best time"? Like someone pointed out, it's past time, the only thing he's doing now is losing fans.

That’s actually kind of interesting

I bought a very overpriced Toshi DVD just to get the CaToshi shirt that came with it.
