General chat / X at its peak?
« Last post by madrigal on April 30, 2020, 10:46:06 AM »
Greetings all from quarantine land!

I was feeling a bit nostalgic so looked up the X with orchestra concert on Youtube to listen to while working from home. This was one of the first live performances I heard with X when I first started listening to them some 15-16 years ago (I feel old). As I was listening I was struck by what a fantastic performance this was and it made me think... was this X at their peak? It's about half a year after Jealousy was released. I'm a big fan of Art of Life, but even that didn't sound this good live, did it?

You can find the concert here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERsYZOBa5nI

What do you guys think? Instead of discussing the decline of X, when do you think they were at their peak?
thank you so much for the blog entries, when MySpace was still a thing I didn't get the chance to read all of the entries so now I'm happy I get the chance to.  8)

in case somebody wants to archive a permanent copy of Yoshiki's blog posts, https://archive.is can be used. So it will be available even if the website is not.

Thanks for this,maybe with reading his post i'm gonna see what his thinking about
What's about Yoshikis LiveJournal?


What's about Yoshikis LiveJournal?


Is that...? Is that really his journal?  ???

No that is not Yoshiki's journal. ChaCha is the nickname of Gackt's guitarist ChaChamaru. It's a fan journal writing fanfiction in the style of journal entries from "Yoshiki's" perspective. I decided to archive on X Freaks the only remaining site with a copy of most if not all of his Myspace blog posts here: https://www.x-freaks.com/forum/index.php?topic=7737.0

Just in case that website gets deleted. I don't think it's tended to anymore so it'd be a shame for them to become obsolete if that one goes. Hopefully X Freaks will be around for a long time.
Yoshiki / Date Unknown, but at least Nov 21 2008 - early 2009

Mes Excuses

Je vous présente toutes mes excuses. Je suis vraiment désolé....

Je ne sais pas comment décrire mes sentiments envers nos fans,

vous qui vous êtiez réjouis à l'idée de voir les concerts de

X Japan à Paris et au japon.

Même si la decision n'était pas la mienne… J'en prends pleine responsabilité…

Et je ne le prends pas à la légère.

J'en ai encore le coeur serré. Je ne supporte pas la douleur d'àvoir brisé le coeur de nos très très cher fans, vous qui m'avez tant soutenus toutes ces années.

J'avais vraiment hâte de faire ces concerts mais notre companie de production a beaucoup de problèmes à resoudre avant que nous puissions recommencer notre tournée.

J'étais prêt à partir en tournée dans n'importe quelles conditions. Si nous avions pu être là, nous vous aurions offer le meilleur spectacle.

Parfois je déteste tout…Je déteste la vie…Je me déteste aussi…

Haissez moi…. Haissez moi encore…Mais je vous aime toujours.

Je me demande parfois si j'aurais du rouvrir cette porte qui

s'appelle "X Japan". Mais en meme temps, je ne sais pas non plus comment la fermer.

Avec Amour,

Hi everyone!

I just finished writing the end title for the Hollywood movie I've been working on as VUK (Now I have to finish recording it!!).

And I have another deadline for an upcoming Japanese TV film (It's about the Second World War…… and it's a 5 hour film!!!!!) by the end of this month…... On top of that….. Some people may already know about it…..

But we just added another day to the X Japan Tokyo Dome shows because of the strong demand….. I think I'm very happy about it, but at the same time I don't know how I'm going to survive for these 3 days (March 28, 29, 30th).

Well, I think that all those songs may turn out to be pretty interesting, and regarding the X Japan shows….. I'll do anything to please our 150,000 dearest fans in the Tokyo Dome. But, to be honest, I'm pretty nervous….. Because of my neck problem, and wrist pain….. You know what? At this point I just have to go for it! (Please wish me luck!)

I'm still in LA, and preparing for all those things, and again I'll read all your lovely comments as soon as I find time. Also we'll make some interesting announcements soon…..!




Regarding my neck, I started going to see medical doctors, chiropractors and acupuncturists and….. Well you name it........ I'm doing everything I can to survive those 3 consecutive shows….. And the day before yesterday, one of the doctors put some kind of heated cups on my back to suck my muscles up….. That felt very weird. And now I have bruises on my back….. hmmmm looks funny! Ha ha ha…..

Also, X Japan's management asked me to link this: www.myspace.com/xjapan2008

We are hoping that some people living outside of Japan can experience X Japan's Tokyo Dome shows.

Guess what..... I just ate one of the best ICE CREAMS I've ever had, and it's low carb..... I don't think life is that bad.....

Or I should say life is fucking wonderful !!!!!!!

I.V. X japan
Current mood: excited


I still haven't found the time to read your comments yet, but I will eventually.

Anyway, the song I wrote for the end title of "Saw IV", which I performed with my band X Japan (you know we reunited recently!), is out!!!

The song is called "I.V."….. I think you can download that song through "iTunes store" worldwide….. Isn't that cool!!!

Also we may tour outside of Japan for the first time….. I'll let you know as soon as we confirm it!

Again, thank you so much for your undying support!




You know what? Last week I went to Tokyo and did a press conference and also did an interview for "MySpace Japan".

They asked me if they could create a special X Japan 2008 page….. www.myspace.com/XJAPAN2008 Wow they did it! ..... "Thank you MySpace!"

I wonder if they can help me decorate my…… YOSHIKI page…..? ha ha ha ha….!

Ahhhh…… I still have jet lag….. I want to go home and sleep, but I have to keep recording the theme song for one of the movies that I'm working on…… I'm sleepy….. I want to go home….. mmmmmmmm

Maybe I should eat some chocolate….!!!!!

Happy New Year!

Hope you had a great holiday.

Sorry but I've been so busy, I haven't been able to update MySpace for a long time.

Well let me get to the point…… I want to talk about X Japan….. That word "X"….. "X Japan"……I tried to forget….. I tried to leave behind.

I suffered with that name for so many years, but it finally came to a conclusion…… instead of avoiding those thoughts, I decided to face it and conquer it…… Because of you…..

You made me realize what I should do…..

So, we will perform this coming march "03/28 and 03/30" in the Tokyo Dome….. As X Japan.

I love you,
