Sorry to disappoint you, but Hyde used Botox a lot lately.

Hey nb,  :P

How do you know this? I see no evidence of botox on his face at all.  He looks older, aging, has wrinkles.  Sometimes they don't show up because of so much makeup but they are there and face shape is identical to younger days.   Poof please!  :P :D

Also,  intercostal neuralgia can be caused by anxiety or severe stress, which totally lines up with his situation back then.

That could be, however, I still think the physical abuse is what caused it.  From the book...


pg. 28 -  Until when do you plan to continue being such a bad disciple?!” Masaya kicked my
back. The violence and abuse continued for many hours, until they decided to stop and I completely
gave in. That night, it went on for over three hours.



pg. 29 - Yet, Moritani kicked my back and stepped on me very
heavily.
With the impact of her stepping on me, for a brief moment I opened my eyes and saw the cuff
of someone’s pants and they removed their slippers. These were Masaya’s feet. Many, many times,
he hit me in the head and face with the slippers, the tingling pain echoed on top of my head
. Then,
Masaya yelled together with the others. “You’ve seen that person dead, now you’re disturbed,
bastard! The future of egoists in a visual rock group like X Japan is suicide! You know that, you beast!
If you don’t participate in our
trainings, the same will happen to you! Get this through your head!” Many hours passed, still with the
abuse and violence.
But in the end, I was unable to cry or scream.

pg. 55  - The atmosphere in the
flight was relaxing, but I had pain from being kicked on the back the previous night, the usual pain in
my chest, and throbbing pain in a part of my face.
As I tried to withstand these pains, I stared at the
window, thinking in nothing else but how I would plan my escape. (But, no matter which way or how
I escape, there’s no doubt that Moritani would go after me...)
When I closed my eyes, I saw her evil expression.

Toshi / Toshi's Injury
« on: February 17, 2019, 12:28:47 PM »
I was looking for info on the band and ran across this article.  I strongly suspect these injuries were caused by the beatings from HoH and not stress. 

Quote
Vocalist Toshi developed intercostal neuralgia around November 2009 and was unable to sing or tour as a result until 2010. Later, it would be known that this was due to his life situation's stress at the time. Meanwhile, Yoshiki's recovery and rehabilitation from his neck surgery continued and continues. The band's projects including the new album and any tours, therefore, were on hiatus until their promotional video shoot in Hollywood January 9th 2010, which was held on top of the Hollywood and Highland mall and open to the public.

Toshi announced in a subsequent press conference that he had left his religion, and accused its leader and his ex-wife of taking all his income for over 12 years, filing fraudulent tax returns and taking out loans in his name without his knowledge. For a while, Masaya still owned many of Toshi's official properties and necessitated that Toshi change his stage name to Tosh 1 as well as not have his own online sites for around a year until the legal matters were settled.

Intercostal Neuralgia
What is intercostal neuralgia?
Intercostal neuralgia is neuropathic pain involving the intercostal nerves. These are the nerves that arise from the spinal cord, below the ribs.

Intercostal neuralgia tends to cause thoracic pain, which affects your chest wall and upper trunk.

What are the symptoms?
The main symptom of intercostal neuralgia is burning, sharp, or shooting pain. This pain may be felt:

around the ribs
in the upper chest
in the upper back
Additional symptoms in these areas include:

a squeezing pressure sensation that wraps around the chest from front to back
tingling
numbness
The pain might feel worse even when doing gentle physical activities, such as deep breathing or stretching. It might also intensify when you laugh, cough, or sneeze. Some people also notice referred pain in their shoulder blade or lower pelvis. Referred pain is pain that you feel in an area other than the affected one.

Intercostal neuralgia caused by the shingles virus (postherpetic neuralgia) can also make your skin itchy and extremely sensitive, even to clothing.

Symptoms of more severe cases of intercostal neuralgia include:

involuntary muscle twitching
loss of appetite
paralysis
muscle atrophy
pain that feels like a lightning bolt

If the album is done and electro formatted, then he can't insert another song on it unless he has everything cut and pressed, again.  Right? I think it's lame, too.  And the new XXX song won't "go" with the older material, anyway.  Lame, lame, lame!

Hahahaa, thank goodness.  Hyde better stay away from that stuff.  The way his face is shaped as it is, I think it would be a disaster if he used Botox.  I think a person could tell in a heartbeat.   Then he's ruined forever.

On his dream collaboration choices, Yoshiki revealed that at the moment, he is working on great music with his friend, Marilyn Manson."

This is also quite sad because I bet we're gonna see Yoshiki with MM sooner than we'll see anything X related...

Sorry to disappoint anyone but I can't stand MM!  >:(

"I have played Madison Square Garden with my band X Japan and I've performed concerts at Carnegie Hall as a solo classical artist, but playing my composition 'Miracle' here at Radio City Music Hall with Sarah Brightman is definitely one of my most exciting moments. I'm really thankful to Sarah," he said.

Says it all.  X Japan was nothing to him compared to Sarah Brightman.  SMH @ Yoshiki.  Fuck off!

You're welcome, Kasumi.  That video I posted with Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Bon Jovi and a whole lot of others (I saw Toshi singing, too) was the one from the article.  If you watch it, they're near that temple.  Again, Roger said:

"I remember we did one tour, we went everywhere. We went to places like Kanazawa and lots of cities. And sometimes we'd just go to Tokyo and Osaka. I went once and did a concert with two of my heroes, Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan. We did a concert by a big temple outside Osaka, that was fantastic. I think I did a song with Yoshiki."

26
There is also the flip side of the single of Foreign Sand called Final Destination featuring both Roger and Yoshiki.

This looks more like what Roger was talking about.

Queen have played Japan in what seems like forever.  This song is written for their 1st trip there, I believe.

https://youtu.be/mIrZpsoxuOo

"Teo Torriatte (Let Us Cling Together)" (手をとりあって Te o Toriatte) is a song by Queen from their 1976 album A Day at the Races. Written by guitarist Brian May, it is the closing track on the album.

The song is notable for having two choruses sung entirely in Japanese, and it was released as a single exclusively in Japan, reaching #49 on the charts.[1] (The B-side was "Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy".) This song features a plastic piano and harmonium, both which are played by May. They brought in a local choir to sing the chorus at the end. On the album, the song is concluded by a one-minute instrumental intro featuring a Shepard tone melody, which is actually a reprise of the beginning of "Tie Your Mother Down": this was intended to create a "circle" in the album, typical, for example, of Pink Floyd's albums.

29
First time I ever saw Yoshiki was this video or another of the same song.  Toshi as well.  And that was when the song was first released as it was announced on the Queen forums.  So that started me off looking into X Japan and listening.

In the mean time, I am going to post Hyde's range, here, from The Range Place because they do change things around on that site or move sites and when they move them, they don't appear to bring previous ratings with them.  In other words, I posted Toshi's when I found it and then they moved.  Toshi's ratings are no longer on the new board and I can't locate the old board, anywhere.  So here goes.

Hyde’s performances are always high energy. Hyde very rarely sounds uncomfortable in any of his registers, both his low notes and his high notes are very strong.
