it can be summed up this way... 1) Yoshiki is so uncertain and shaky about the new release (be it perfectionism or the fear of not being able to keep up with people's expectations) that he deliberately chose to keep this album hidden from the rest of humanity forever. 2) Other X's members are tired of this endless tug-of-war and eventually ditched the whole project and they're willing to appear on stage only when it's needed as independent musicians. That also would explain why Yoshiki follows the other members but some of them don't follow him back (Pata being a giant example for that, pun intended).

Your point two unfortunately is wrong.

Taiji / Re: Why Taiji was fired by Yoshiki
« on: January 17, 2020, 08:17:39 PM »
I do understand your point of view. I honestly have no idea. oc I have my own thoughts about it.

I thought about someone fucked with the others girlfriend or took drugs or anything.
Another idea and not particularly my opinion, but could it also be possible that Yoshiki won't say the actual reason bcs it would show him (Yoshiki) in a bad light? (I'm not sure if this is correct English, since I'm not a native speaker). Or maybe Yoshiki also is thinking that the reason was a bit childish and he doesn't want to talk about it anymore?

On the other hand, I don't think it's totally wrong to debate the possibility Yoshiki kicked him because of business reasons or questioning Yoshiki too much. I mean, read in Toshis book. Yoshiki don't like any criticism at all and is very harsh when someone questions him or is not as good as Yoshikis standards. Look at how sad, wasted and lonely Toshi felt at the time he started dating wanku.

But yeah, idk. It's also possible Yoshiki was sick of Taijis constant complaining. And it seems he had a little backup of hide...

We'll never know.

Sorry to bump up such an old topic, but I remembered a Reddit post written by Yoshiki himself about the whole situation (here's the link https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/4a9o6b/i_am_yoshiki_pianist_drummer_and_leader_of_x/d0yim3p/ ). Seems like hide was involved in one way or another too...

No probs here to bump old topics ;)

In Taijis book it says he was fired bcs he asked for equal splits for every musician. He also said, Yoshiki is very two-faced.

So, apparently Yoshiki stated in his New Year's message that X Japan would not be active in 2020. That supposedly a number of contract issues with members and management issues have to be resolved before X Japan can resume.

this is a bummer :(

Note that I say apparently and supposedly since I am using Google Translate to read some blogs and messages from people who were discussing it. So I could be totally wrong, as Google Translate isn't great with Japanese. But it makes sense from what we know. Note that I'm not sure if he said the second part about the contract and management issues, they could have been speculating that part.

A couple of our members are quite fluent in Japanese. Maybe you want to give us some links, so we can reread it? :)

And also if this rumor is true though, at least it answers one age old question I had, which what things can actually manage to piss off Pata besides soba and Giants losing. Toshi must have pissed him off real hard cuz to my knowledge I never knew Pata could seriously get mad at anyone.

Imho it sounds really fishy.

If it wouldn't include PATA it sounds very legit, but with him? Idk... something is off... But maybe I'm wrong... Who knows?

I checked Toshis Twitter profile. He never mentioned there anything about his X Japan activities. So he hadn't removed anything. ( https://web.archive.org/web/20181011081729/https:/twitter.com/toshlofficial )

Thanks for sharing.
Wow, they sound very good! That guy looks and sounds almost like Toshi!

Haha, I agree.

I just watched their other X
cover videos. I like their Kurenai cover even more.
That girl on drum looks so cute and happy.

She really does. It seems she has so much fun playing it^^

we did a translation of Junk Story on this forum.

You can download the subs. They are synced with the movie. Two members did all the hard work

I hope we will be pleasantly surprised with this, hopefully it uncovers more than we actually know. I wish Toshi would make a documentary, actually i wish all of them would. they all seemed to have lead interesting lives.

I totally have to agree. Since I read Toshis book and cried a lot while reading it, I'm definitely more interested in a movie about Heath, Pata and Taiji. But that doesn't mean I'm not interested in a movie about Toshi  8)
btw. I still have to watch the latest Hide doc.  :)

Yoshiki / Re: YOSHIKI Life of a japanese Rockstar - Trailer
« on: November 13, 2019, 05:52:47 PM »
I'm sure I will watch this movie^^

Hopefully it'll be a reason for him to release the Album finally  8)

the pictures are from 3 books

They are the Scorebooks from each album. I also have Vanishing Vision and X Singles, but I couldn't find any useful information in that for our topic  ;) ;)

Hey bro,

sorry for kept you waiting this long. There you go:

This one is from BLUE BLOOD

...and Jealousy

and this one is from Dahlia. But I'm not 100% sure if this is for PATA, hide or something totally different. I'm sure it is something acoustic related but... Well, I just thought, I post it here too  :)

Pata / Re: Pata's guitar tone
« on: November 03, 2019, 07:06:04 PM »
I have the Scorebooks of a few albums.

There is a stagereader included. I can post it if someone is interested.

I have a drivers license... since today.  :D

waaaaahhhh congratz!!!!1111!!  8)

Released my first solo album last week (can't reveal name here because MUH privacy XD). It contains 5 new songs along with 2 of my older new songs. Every track is of different genre but the whole album is predominantly 90s style techno made with analog Synth and virtual analog VSTs. It has gotten good response till now on SoundCloud and our local music streaming app. Its doing better than I expected because it's completely instrumental.

I will surely reveal my solo stuff when I will think I am ready for global platform  ;) :)

can you provide me with a link? maybe pm? ^^

Heath / Re: Why Heath no longer provides support vocals?

Good question!
I asked that myself too a couple of times. Also he is not singing during his solo anymore.
