Thanks so much for sharing! From a huge gossip girl's perspective, there are actually some questions that I have if you're still in contact with him and wouldn't mind helping me ask!

For the band members' private lives, many fans now know Yoshiki's famous girlfriends Kudo and Voth, Sugizo's ex-wife and Taiwanese girlfriend, and of course everyone knows Toshi's infamous wife. However I'd really hope to get more gossip on the other band members but haven't been able to. I have heard dubious rumors about Pata being already married and having a kid, but I don't know for sure.. Taiji's private life was also interesting because most of his fans now know that he was divorced and had two kids, but no one knows who the ex-wife is, or even when exactly they got married (rumors put it at around X's debut, but was it really that early?) Given that no one has heard of what happened to his ex-wife and kids after he got divorced, I assume that they severed all ties and want to move on, but if Mr. roadie has heard of any details with Pata and Taiji, I'd really love to know! Also the fact that no one knows who hide's girlfriend was (or probably even that he had a girlfriend until he passed away), but she probably has moved on too...

I've also heard rumors that Taiji used to cook for the band sometimes, and when Heath took over he also had to do some cooking, but I'm not sure if that's credible information...

Another thing is I'm also quite intrigued as to how Yoshiki and other band members get U.S. visas so easily. I'm assuming U.S. visa process works differently for artists and celebrities, but back then they probably all had arrest records from all the drinking during indies era which could honestly really affect your visa application, and they often had to fly to U.S. very frequently for recording and stuff. How does that process even work out?

Anyways, thanks so much for sharing! Sorry for posting quite some questions  :D ;D

That might be it, sounds familiar. Thank you very much!

Now I'm off to go find that song.  :)

ps yes that's it!!!

I found a video of a live performance of this song; looks like the band is on a glass or clear stage outside of a building, high in the sky about the crowd. Could that be some kind of New Year's celebration or what?

Hey! Nice to see new people. I can totally understand how you fell in love that quickly. :D

The song you're searching for might be "JADE". The lyrics you are referring to might be these:

Quote
Oh, 'cause you are beautiful
 Your scars are beautiful, like the jade

Greetings, I'm a new fan.  I've been watching videos online for about a week; I've just fallen in love with the music!

There was a song I heard that had lyrics like "you're beautiful", and the melody reminded me of the song Forever Love, but then I search the lyrics for that, and I'm mistaken.

Maybe I'm confusing some of the songs, since they are still new to me.

Can someone help me out? Thank you!

Or if you want ALL OF THEM :twisted:, that's cool too, I can try to do one song a day or so.

That would be kinda nice...  :twisted:

About this JURIA... I have a scan of the back of Acoustic, and he's credited for the lyrics of "Circle Of Nations"... "First Small Song" and "Towards Red Earth"'s lyrics are credited to JURIA & GO...

Now... Correct me if I'm wrong, but... These are instrumental tracks... O.O

My personal fan theory is that JURIA is TAIJI himself. The songs that JURIA got credited for kinda give a hint. Plus if you've heard a bit of TAIJI's personal life around the time of DTR you might also be able to guess why I came to that conclusion :)

Even if it's not TAIJI himself, my guess would still be that this is someone very close to TAIJI that he hired to be credited for under that name.

Oh,
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.  :)

there is a hide doc? i know there are a few, but all in japanese. i would be very interested in a doc about heath and pata, they are the mysterious ones.
