 by drinking I mean Pata level drinking. Having a drink or two sometimes is not drinking. During the new year broadcast he didn't drink much and most  Asians get tipsy quite quickly anyways. While he sipped on pne or two glasses of wine, Pata drank like 8 or 10 glasses :D

Have you ever seen Pata drunk? I mean really drunk, stumbling around, hitting wrong notes, falling, dropping over onto the table?

Every time I see a video of him without the rest of X,  he is perky and talks fast, looks bright eyed, etc.  I am thinking he doesn't have that much of a drinking problem and some people can hold their liquor a lot better than others.  Maybe he's one of those.  :)

Some drunk people are different from others. Some just get slow and fall asleep, others get hyper and break stuff like hide used to do. I think Pata is a silent drunkard. He definitely has a drinking problem. Whenever you see him on videos, there is always beer or something in his hand. Always. People who are unable to spend a day without drinking alcohol are alcohol addicts, there is no workaround that title. I've seen this, I know how it looks like.

I disagree because there was a time when every single day of the week, I drank heavily.  Then one day, I just decided to stop after about 10 years of that.  I was just fine and no cravings to keep drinking.  I know he drinks all the time and one does tend to build up a tolerance to it.

Well, but he does drink, he acts like he never drinks he even said he was offered champagne and rejected it because he doesn't drink but then drank it anyway. In the most recent Toshi Radio he said he found a fancy place where they sell delicious alcohol, so now he goes there sometimes lmao

I thought Pata being an alcoholic was a well known fact? I have hear him playing the wrong notes and his playing got worse and worse over the years but his playing has been better the last couple of years. Also, wasn't his illness related to alcohol? Toshi and Yoshiki were talking during the last concert broadcast in July and they said they always have to rehearse early in the day because later in the day Pata is too drunk to rehearse, I'd say that's not normal drinking.

But back to the original topic, I agree with matsumoto, Toshi doesn't have eyes, it's obviously photoshop.

Pata should stop drinking after having these intestinal problems in 2015. Yes, indeed, these problems may have been caused by alcohol.
In the 90's he was almost like the Lemmy of X. He was never seen without Jack Daniels.

But alcoholism is about as accepted in Japan as in the Western world in the 50s. It is not really seen as a problem.


positively unsure。

Some people can stop, other people can't. Pata is pretty much an alcohol addict, and even after being in hospital, he didn't stop. But this is already seriously off topic.

Here is a gorgeous picture of 'our' Toshi without glasses. Come on Toshi show us your eyes again! They are beautiful windows to your soul! The photo is beautiful from an artistic point of view too.  Thanks to Teemeah for finding this one. I know its not 'recent' but still lovely all the same.

He has such beautiful sharp eyes in these pictures. It's sad that we can't see them anymore.  :(

I have a feeling that the glasses make Toshi feel safe and less vulnerable or perhaps its a self esteem or shame thing? Like, sometimes when we can feel down and lacking in confidence about ourselves we don't want to look at anyone directly in the eyes. Then again it could just be because he is cool and doesn't care what anyone thinks!  8)

I would really like to see Toshi without glasses just once at least. We love you Toshi! Show us your face! It will make us all smile. Give us a dramatic reveal during a concert!

I think it’s because he just created that sunglasses image. He always had them since the 80’s, then in the 90’s he started wearing them even more in concerts a lot... I don’t think there is a single solo performance by him before 1997 where he didn’t have sunglasses all the time lol and well, now we here. Besides, sometimes in his instagram posts he randomly puts the tag #MysterySunglasses haha

Ii agree with you, fluffy.   I think he feels safe behind those glasses, somehow.  It seems it all goes back to his time at HoH and what happened to him, there.

And another one, not new.  I had to do a double take on it, though, to make sure it was our Toshi. And it certainly is.   But unusual!

When/where is this photo from?? It's the first time I see Toshi with this long black hair! Looks really cool.
