Do Japanese fans still buy Yoshiki's lies/nonsense? I'm curious.

Also, why doesn't Yoshiki simply release old stuff to stay relevant? :-X

There's still so much fantastic X material that has never been officially released:
- Kyoto Sports Valley '88
- Nagoya Rock Wave '90
- Rose & Blood Tour '90
- X with Orchestra '91
- Violence in Jealousy Tour '91
- On the Verge of Destruction -3 Days- '92

I just don't understand Yoshiki's logic.

On the same subject, consiering how big is X Japan, I'm always baffled how their CDs are nowhere to be found.
I mean, if Blue blood and Jealousy weren't not rereleased in 2007 (I think ?), there'd be none of the album available at a normal price (even in Japan).

My guess is that the fans who decide to leave probably have mostly left already. People who stay probably just really don't care how much longer they have to wait.

Also in terms of releasing the old lives, i personally really would like to see more releases too, especially X with Orchestra and Rose and Blood. However, it's also true that he's very strict with editing the live footage (for example it took him like several years to release on the Verge of Destruction, and did he ever release any official live recordings post-reunion?), and realistically he probably just doesn't have the time. I personally just hope that if for example NHK does a documentary or something related to X Japan, hopefully some fans can just pressure them into signing something with Yoshiki and release some X with Orchestra footage on their end..

was watching junk story last night. Saw how hide was so adamant on giving other staff members and spread beavers same footing as him, like travelling in same car,train living in same hotel, being super close to them and allowing them (actually even asking them) to play in front of him or do anything on stage. Remember, that was just a BACKING LIVE BAND.

And heres our Yoshiki, doing the exact ditto opposite even though it was supposed to be a normal band

on the other hand, trying to read Yoshiki's mind is quite difficult. Nobody really knows what he's up to. Take a look at this: https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2020/01/28/business/x-japan-yoshiki-eyes-cloud/
what's this for? Is his next step turning X into a computer firm?  :D

I mean X technically doesn't have "members". They are legally just musicians hired to play a bunch of lives for a certain amount of time and to appear for tv shows and stuff. It's just Yoshiki and he owns literally everything and he has the right to do anything about X himself alone, so I think others don't talk because they don't have the right to talk.

He should've been the main singer for that band  :D

I don't think he can sing at all. LOL

I haven't been listening to Yoshiki's side projects with other bands because just as many other people I'm really fed up about the unbelievable delay of the album and I'm not really in the mood to see him playing around with us, but you can recognize from miles away his overall touch in the melodic structure. The lyrics are also Yoshiki-esque and they literally speak volumes about how much he's tired about people who put on a facade to interact with him. He should've been the main singer for that band  :D

Is it possible there's some type of NDA in place? I never realized how difficult it was to deal with speaking to people about a subject until I signed one myself.

it might very well be. After all, everybody who's involved in the band management never made a single piece of information about its status slip out of their mouths besides Yoshiki himself... Talking about being secretive  :-X
