Heath / Re: Why Heath no longer provides support vocals?
« on: July 09, 2020, 10:14:50 AM »
the simplest explanation is that X members (not the historical ones, of course) consider themselves musicians for hire and they feel like they belong less than ever to a band. (Not surprisingly...) So they feel like they're allowed to overlook minor details such as background vocals.

Every musician of X is hired. Even Yoshiki. He owns the company behind X Japan but for gigs the company hires all the musicians on stage.

btw. Yoshiki is the only owner of X Japan today.

On the Verge of Destruction / Re: Missing on DVD

The first and second nights were never officially released, but there are bootlegs on the internet for a long time.

And the 3rd night was officially released, but without Rose of Pain, never understood why.

Are there any missing/wrong notes? Maybe that's the reason why they cut it? Just guessing...

tbh the forum is more alive then the band itself. but on the other hand it reflects very accurate the activity of the band

It's fascinating, that I never answered to this thread.  8)

I think tbh without his charm and stage attitude I maybe would never listen to X.

Of course the music is special Yoshiki wrote (I mention Yoshiki because he wrote most of it), but I also know a lot of bands that are okay-ish. Just because the singer is just a normal guy who can sing.
But Toshi has a remarkable voice. You recognize it everywhere.

And also he seems like such a nice guy. Without any airs and graces.

Just a cool guy

I would shoot him a message on IG to ask how he's getting along with Yoshiki, but I'm 100% sure that nobody would answer...

Albums/Singles / Re: X JAPAN New Album(When??)
« on: May 23, 2020, 11:36:31 PM »
I don't even understand what happened with Toshl.

[This is just my opinion/idea/thoughts]

Maybe he is sick of waiting all the time. I mean he is waiting for the album for 10 years too. And since everything is dedicated to Yoshiki and Yoshiki only owns all the rights of X nowadays Toshi just thought "Well, I'm bankrupt (after HoH) and I have to earn money. So I have to start working!" And then he started with his solo works.

And maybe the schedule doesn't fit around Yoshikis schedule. Toshi is 100x more busy than PATA or Heath. At least that is what I think because PATA "only" has Ra:IN and HEATH? Idk. He was into DeeJaying a couple of years ago. I have no idea what he is up to since Dope HEADz and Lynx are decreased.. His last album was 2009...

But there are rumors that Toshi and PATA are not in good terms. There was something at the "no audience gig" The "proof" is, that PATA is not following Toshi on Twitter... I have no idea. I just read it...

But the decision not to release the album is the decision of Yoshiki alone. He also gave the direction of the album and changed it a couple of times. For example it once was a best of X album with new recordings and lyrics all in english. Like Kurenei aka Deep Red and we also heard Rusty Nail with english lyrics a couple of times live... but yeah.. .bla bla bla jibber jabber...
