I wish there were more good quality Heath fan PVs :)

Thanks for the link. Sometimes I have the feeling that I don't know how he actually looks like because we don't get enough close up of him.

In Wembley there was a girl with a big HEATH sign. I liked it :)

This! He is the member with the least coverage during concerts. I get that bassists are not as flashy as guitarists but ... they should be given equal screen time. I love Yoshiki to bits and pieces but I want more footage of Heath. And Sugizo! :D

I think, apart from the bassist being less flashy and all, taking Taiji's place musn't have been easy and thus there was a decision not to show too much of him at first? Just a thinking. Or, of course, not, I don't know x)

It's a shame since he's now the prettiest member imo (hide was n°1) and has some nice outfits kind of old days ^^

And since it's a global appreciation thread: I just love the song clock work life! <3 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nx_sI4wvJg)

ahahhah. My favourite has to be Come to Daddy, because his voice is just so quirky there and I'm like, "hell yes, I'd come to you" :P LOL. (Well, he is just 13 years older than me, so I hopefully don't look very weird when I say this :D)

He IS pretty. Though at times you can really feel he got old. all of them got old but you don't notice it that much with Yoshiki, for example. Pata, yes. I think it's the makeup that makes Heath look really pretty nowadays, the dark eyeshadow and those flirty Indian-esque hair extensions. He looks ah-ma-zing. Without make-up he is a regular almost-50 guy. :D But what i really appreciate a lot is his demeanour, he is quiet but can headbang wild when he feels like, and he has a beatiful smile (I wish he smiled more).

I watched this interview recently where he was asked about Luna Sea and he said "I don't know anything about them" and then went on telling little cute anecdotes of each member, like totally unaware of the other X japan members looking at him like: "what?" :DDD "you just said you don't know anything about them". and he as grinning like from ear to ear. SO CUTE :D It's this interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYO1_bPgtrw

Even without the anecdotes, it's nice to hear Heath talking haha It's not something we're really used to sadly...

Of course, the make-up make him prettier, that's the whole point in the end but I still think that without it he's a bit more handsome than any 50 year old Japanese guy. I agree with you about his smile! A big plus indeed.

As for the other member, of course they all aged and it's more and more visible (it's normal though). I remember when the I.V. PV got released in 2007 and I thought "Wow it looks like they just got out of the Last Live and came here" (mostly because of Toshi who looked kind of Last Live although the years after 97 he didn't look good at all, that was a nice surprise).

Now, 10 years later, they're more like 50 yo guys and I always wonder how hide would have look like nowadays!

Yeah, I guess talkativeness really depends on his mood. In other interviews I saw, even when he is given the mic, he rarely says anything other than yes or no. Maybe he needs a few shots of drink to ease up and get his tongue roll. :D I like hearing him talk, I think he has a nice voice.

I also wonder a lot how hide would look like now. I know it is pointless but still. would he have aged like Yoshiki, almost remaining the same, just with a few more wrinkles, or would he have aged like Taiji and Toshi, getting a little heavier and rounder? Altough Yoshiki probably has had some botox shots to maintain his skin.

I think Heath could do with a little more meat on his bones, like some 10 kg more could totally fit him fine. I volunteer to cook :P a couple weeks on traditional Hungarian diet and those skinny wrinkles on his face would plump out :P

Yeah, not to bash Yoshiki, but I think he's not that natural looking compared to the other but at least it's not too much I guess.

And obviously Heath could put on a little weight ^^

I'm glad it was novelty to someone else as well :D I was so surprised. It's like he has two different personalities :D (which is, to some extent, not surprising considering the band he is in LOL)
