I have been listening to some very old songs  and wonder why no one has mentioned about V2 on this forum?
(I could be wrong but I searched V2 and the name of the song but didn't find any match)

In 1991, Yoshiki and Tetsuya Komuro (from TM Network / TMN) have released 2 songs under V2.
I am/was a fan from the band TMN and X Japan at that time. Imagine how happy I was to see this collaboration.
I totally love the songs they made... although the singing/ voice from Tetsuya Komuro is not everyone's cup of tea.

If some 'older' members  ;D  on this forum have watched the anime City Hunter, they should know about the band TMN because
their song Get Wild was the theme song of City Hunter.

This is the show they made back then. I still remember watching the Laser Disc hundred of time back then...  ;D

Magucathy,

I never realized that this is the music of City Hunter. I'm a big fan of it. (lol, makes me an older member? ^^)

Ha..ha.. good to know that I am not the only one who has watched/read City Hunter.  ;D
I even joined the TMN fan club in Japan when I was in high school. (I paid and my Japanese friend send me all the monthly magazines....etc)
Thinking about that, I really 'wasted' quite a lot of money back then.  :-\

I really love Takashi Utsunomiya 's voice.  If any of you are interested. I think their song Still Love Her was the ending song
of the anime.

I don't think this is true. If you are spending your money for something that makes you happy, then it's not wasted, or what do you think?

I think I still have a video of a live performance of V2.

Is nice. Nothing amazing. Eyes of Venus drums is ridiculously similar to Silent Jealousy, btw.

Haha,
I thought much the same. Not 'bout Silent Jealousy but about X in general. "Did I listened to this drum track on Dahlia or Jealousy?".  ;D
