If you could ask any 5 questions to any X Japan member, what would they be?
Mine are as follows:

1: Yoshiki: When you write a rock/metal song how do you write it; on piano or guitar?

2: Toshi: Your English lyrics on Voiceless Screaming and Desperate Angel are very grammatically correct / good. How much help did you have completing them? and if so, who helped you?
3: Yoshiki: Did you and Taiji really have a physical altercation and was that the REAL reason why Taiji left the band?

4: Yoshiki: Will the 1993 rerecording of Kurenai (last known unreleased recording of hide with X Japan) ever be released?

5: Yoshiki: How did it feel when you completely cut your hair for the 1st time?

I'm pretty sure he said in an interview that he doesn't use any instruments, but instead imagines them in his head.

This is my administrator color.

Yeah and that he writes down the notes, I think.

1) To Yoshiki) Of all the members you hired for X Japan, who did you get on best with? Who did you have the greatest creative understanding with? Who did you have the worst relationship with? Did other members easily embrace you as being the leader, or the boss? Or did it take numerous power struggles and arguments?

2) To Heath and Pata) What are your actual creative roles in the band? Do you help with arrangement? Suggest ideas when producing a song? Add your own affectations and style to the parts you are give? Or do you write your own parts based on the chords and key Yoshiki writes? And, do you actually even want to be part of X Japan?

3) To Toshi) Why did you rejoin X Japan in 2007? Were you influenced by Masaya and HOH to rejoin the band in order to promote Toshi Healing Music and T-Earth? How much creative control did you have over your healing music? Did you and Masaya enjoy a close or friendly relationship before you left? Do you see your future with X Japan, or working on other ventures?

4) To Yoshiki) In the olden days of X, did you write all of the guitar solos and parts? Or just the basic framework of the songs, such as chords and lyrics? Do you arrange your own orchestral parts, or work with a composer and allow him to come up with arrangements?

5) To Yoshiki) Why have you taken so long over Violet UK? Do you suffer from depression and self doubt which prevents you releasing music? Or do you just never complete your work-load and struggle operating under deadlines?

What do you mean by Yoshiki completely cutting his hair? Did he shave it all off once or are you referring to when he cut most of it off?

When he cut most of his hair off. It was a huge risk at the time and made news all over japan.

Yoshiki: Train A, traveling 70 miles per hour (mph), leaves Westford heading toward Eastford, 260 miles away. At the same time Train B, traveling 60 mph, leaves Eastford heading toward Westford. When do the two trains meet? How far from each city do they meet?

Sugizo: I've listened to Hot Rats by Frank Zappa but since his discography is so large..which of his albums would you suggest I listen to next?

I would like to ask everyone five questions!

Toshi:
- Why did you want to build X with Yoshiki instead of pursuing a different career or going to university or something?
- What is Yoshikis biggest weakness from your perspective as his childhood friend?
- What is the most fun X song to sing?
- Is there a song from X that you don't want to sing anymore, but fans keep requesting?
- Would you prefer if X songs were entirely in japanese?

Heath:
- How did you get to know hide?
- Do you prefer your solo work or X Japan?
- Are you a cat-person or a dog-person?
- If you hadn't joined X Japan, what would you be doing now?
- Do you have a special diet or something that helps you stay thin?

Pata:
- What were your thoughts as the wembley concert had to be postponed because of your health conditions?
- Are you well now?
- Why do you like cats?
- Whats your cats name? (since Toshi named his dog nyantaro, maybe you should name your cat Inu...)
- Have you ever expected that X would become so huge, when you joined Yoshikis band?

Sugizo:
- For how long did you knew each X Japan member before joining?
- What do you think makes X Japan so succesful?
- How much do you practice the violin each day?
- What made you want to be a guitarist?
- What's your favorite star trek episode?

Yoshiki:
- Were there times when you have been frustrated with playing the piano/drums?
- Who is your favorite living pianist?
- Are you aware that you performed on the same stage (Carnegie Hall) as some of the greatest pianists of all time?
- Are you ever nervous before concerts... seriously?
- NEW ALBUM - WHEN?

While I'm away, read this line again...

Cool topic! Love Kasumi's questions, lots of interesting things I'd like to know about them! My version bellow.

Question for Heath:
Do you ever eat? If yes, can you prove it to me?

Question for Pata:
Jack Daniels is the worst whiskey ever. Fight me.

Question for Toshi:
What are the exact thoughts on your head when you go live on Instagram in a pink fuzzy sweater, a single crystal earring and a bunch of stuffed animals? Your. Exact. Thoughts. It's eugh... for a science paper.

Question for Sugizo:
Give me style tips, senpai.

Question for Yoshiki:
Tell me something interesting about yourself that doesn't include any of the following facts:
1. You started playing piano at age 4.
2. Hide is dead and you're sad.
3. You like cheesecake.

*Bonus*

Question for Taiji:
You totally got the sack because you outglamed Yoshiki in at least 3 music videos, right?

Question for Hide?
If you were a psychedelic pink tapeworm how long would you be and what kind of parties would you throw in the bowels of your unsuspecting inncocent victims? Would you have made a film about it, had you lived?

Woah, I can haz admin colour.
