just because they both are 'different' doesnt mean they are compareable.
IMO, the new guitarist should at least be Japanese (the bands name is X JAPAN) and other then that, I just don't like Wes his guitar playing.

I don't know how much he will get to play at the concerts, but he certainly is not "the new guitarist".
yeah, I know that, but he is going to play with X, if only for 2 songs

Some things some Users and Wes wrote:

When I read the last 4 lines of that post, I wonder if you understand the significance for you to be playing with X Japan, or how many other guitarists would kill to be in your position. o_o Like, did you even hear of X before this? :/

I do understand. Yoshiki and I have been good friends for a long time and this means a lot to him. I'm honored to be able to do it.

and

Wes Borland, you of all people do not deserve to be in X-Japan.

I can think of a few people who deserve it less than I do. Anyway, I'm not "in" the band, so breathe easy guy.

I really think we should all AT LEAST wait till the concerts before judging if a guitarist fits or not in X Japan.

I'm sure every X Japan member is sad cause they all want that guitarist to be hide. But that is impossible. So just respect them and at least give a chance to their choice.

I say it again, it's a matter of taste. So I really don't see what's the point of keeping saying "this guitarist sucks". It's just an opinion and there's nothing to argue about it. But of course this is a forum, we're here to talk together, that's cool. But I really think some should just show a little more respect or just try to say things differently in order not to "hurt" people.

Now it seems that Wes has removed the comment from the myspace-site, perhaps he wasn't supposed to tell it right now.

Message from Wes:

For Hide

Playing with X Japan was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. Thanks to everyone who came to the shows. Richard Fortus and I tried to do our best with Sugizo to fill the massive hole left in the band where Hide once stood. I’m forever honored to have been part of the experience. To all the X Japan fans that didn’t think I belonged there: I’m sorry if I ruined your time. I was trying to help my friend Yoshiki in the only way I knew how. I hope you can forgive the intrusion. I had an amazing time and I think the shows turned out to be really special. There may be more to come. I’m looking forward to coming home and getting back to work on the next BLB album. Thanks, -Wes

Wow, beautiful. It's a pity he feels like apologizing for doing his best... >_< I think people complaining about this were pretty stupid.

May X be with you!

Regardless of people's perception of Wes based on his work with Limp Bizkit etc, the fact that is that he was ultimately on stage up there, and he was up on there based on a mutual respect by all the band members. Yes, I believe Wes was an odd choice to be playing with X Japan, but he played, and it obviously meant alot to him and he enjoyed the experience, so thats all that matters.

Message from Wes:

Very cool.  I still hold that he was an odd choice, but much respect to him to having written that.  Very nicely said, I'm glad to know he enjoyed it so much and considered it so important.

Wes is so right with his message, the concerts were really special, and I don't think he ruined the concert for anyone. Even if you don't like him, how many songs was he on stage? On the second day one song and on the third day for two songs (at least that's how I remember it), and from what I heard/saw X and Orgasm really rocked.
On the "more to come" note, if he would be with X Japan in Europe I would be happy to see him on stage.
