Thanx again rafaelo and Ashemanu for the links, I´m thinking about making a donation for the victims of the earthquake/tsunami over the "yoshiki foundation", is there anybody here who got already experiences with the foundation, are they really serious? (I first thought making it over the red cross, but esp. for Germany I know they need a lot of money for their administration, that´s why I´m just searching...)

saw the nbc los angeles video and was pretty impressed by it, he got some good publicity for it but now we see how much the piano will go for, im imagining around 400k minimum to come collector/hardcore rich fan.

all going to a good place

This is so encouraging to see.  I am glad that Yoshiki, and X Japan as a whole, are committed to helping out in the relief efforts.   I have been to some of the affected areas.  The images will never leave me.  I saw things one is never supposed to see.  You cannot believe the devastation.  This tragedy will be with us forever.  Thank you Yoshiki and X Japan.

Our work continues here and we are doing our best to be of assistance to the poor animals impacted by this disaster.

We are X!!!!!

Yes, trying to help the animals.  And, in doing so, this helps people.  I pray for reunions between people and their pets.

I wonder when we will see the Piano on sale, I know there will be a lot of sad faces with people watching it, and im sure Yoshiki himself is proud of what he will be doing but at the same time sad to lose such a beautiful thing.

I'm sad for everything in Japan, homes are destroyed, lives both human and animals are missing or deceased just horrible.

Tanabata I wish you luck on everything you do

Thank you for all your kind words.

Here in Japan we are still consumed by the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear reactor problem.  Some happy stories are coming out of the tragedy and, of course, some unbearably sad ones.

Please keep Japan in your mind and hearts.

Thanks again.

Thanx for the vid, Rafaelo.
such sorrowful and painful shots..... It's unbelievable how many times Japan suffered from the terrible disaster.. T__T I hope everything will be all right and the people will get huge support from all over the world.
This band is so great not just because of their music but because they really care and don't stand aside from others' pain. Way to go, X

It's a nice video, well put together and quite moving - but perhaps a little bit too gratituous and Yoshiki-centric for my liking... I think it's perhaps a little sceptical to make a video about Yoshiki and then ask people to donate to help the Japan Earthquake relief... Why not just make a video about the Earthquake? Sure, it's Yoshiki's foundation, but all money raised is being given to the Japanese Red Cross society, it's not like Yoshiki himself is making a huge donation.

well, I could partially agree - at first glance it seems to be concentrated on him.... But I think that Yoshiki's authority\popularity will draw attention of much more people from all the world, so it really makes sense for me
