I really like that sequence from the Last Live. The dude smiles at Toshi ever so sweetly even though he was internally cursing the hell out of him for breaking up the band. Good guy Hide.

Happy Birthday, dear hide.  Miss you even though I never met you.  And I wish so much that you were still here with us on this earth.

Yoshiki reminds of a Barbie doll. It doesn't matter what you do, you just can't get those proportions.
Oh wait. He did have his own Barbies back in the day.

Considering that he changed his style at a pretty fast rate (his hairdo and color changed every other month between 1997 and 1998), he would probably have gone through a bunch of different styles we can't even dream of.  Neon camo Hide, hippie unicorn Hide, salad steampunk Hide, blue glitter sumo fighter Hide...  8)

I have no idea how that would translate onto a middle-aged dude, though. Unlike Yoshiki, who's all diet and exercise and botox, it seems that Hide didn't take very good care of himself. Smoking 5 packs a day, getting pissed drunk every other night and his weird bulimia thing would probably have either given him cancer or made him look like your average out-of-era rockstar mofo. Too bad because I agree with LEMONedMe, he had a strangely elegant figure, he was somehow very plesant to look at.

I don't know much about Mayuko, except that she died towards 2009. Not sure Hide did a lot more than raising awareness about her condition, telling people that donating bone marrow is cool and cheering up that poor child. Which is a lot, actually. We have a lot of celebs who kind of act as ambassadors to those causes in the West, but appearently it wasn't a widespread practice in Japan at the time. Yup, he sounded like a cool guy.

I agree that it would be something to see what he would look like, now.  I suspect he wouldn't have pink hair or use nearly as much make-up but maybe he would.  Somehow, I don't think that would be so attractive on a man of 53 as it would on a man in his early 30s, though.  Might look rather foolish.  I suppose it would depend on how he aged and what he actually looked like without that makeup compared to what he looked like back in 1998. etc.

For me, he was so damn cute near the end and damn near or WAS elegant when he was younger with his hair all spiked so high, wearing all the makeup, jewelry and elaborate clothing.

But I've read a lot about him and Mayuko and must say, I am so impressed with his behavior with her situation.   I am enthralled, even.  He was a real saint, doing what he did.  He dropped everything he was doing and transformed from a rocker into a caretaker who really, REALLY cared about this young girl whose life seemed to depend on him.  And after her surgery and her blood pressure was going so out of whack it was going to kill her, he dropped everything and ran to be by her side, again, then wrote her the song, Misery, for when she was better.  Sorta a rejoicing of her life after nearly dying.  That impressed me so much, I almost cried.  I think I did cry.  What a wonderful soul he had.  What a beautiful person he was, inside and out.  I will not forget that.  I am sure she never will, either.

Woah, can't help but wonder what he would have looked like at age 53. I liked the guy very much, even if he died when I was seven and not at all into metal at the time (duh!).

I guess he was a natural-born artist, we'll probably never really know the full extent of his talents. Hide was a great musician, a kickass fashionista, an awesome hair and make up artist, he also drew, wrote poetry, film scripts, cooked... To top it off, he had a very one of a kind physique and made a great photo model. It's insane that his work still looks modern after 30 years and that people are still crying over him after all this time. In the context of a human lifetime, 20 years is an insane amount of time. I don't feel sad that Freddie Mercury or David Bowie or any other of my idols died (humans die, you know). Yet I feel kind of sad for this guy. Something about his life seems like it was left unfinished.

The other day, while I was watching We Are X for the 100th time in Paris, a kid no older than 15 sat behind me in full Xfangirl paraphernalia and cried like there was no tomorrow when they talked about his death. Bro, if you can make a kid born way after you died cry over that, you must have done something very right in your lifetime.
