Not sure if it's mainly because the forum is kinda quiet or some people might just haven't heard yet, but Yoshiki wrote and produced a song for an idol group SixTones from Johnny's.

Half of it is out on YouTube.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for the information.
The song is quite ok. I think it's funny that Yoshiki wrote a song for a boy band.  ;D
What do you think? Do you like the song?

I like some parts of it (the piano arrangements mainly) but the drums felt kinda weird, not sure why. I don't really know whether it was him playing the drums, but probably not.
I personally prefer it to the song that he wrote to the Korean boy band Trax (like 14 years ago almost?). But the full-length studio version isn't out yet so we'll have to see.

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

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

There is recording of Yoshiki singing. But I think somewhere he admitted that he can't sing (but I'm not sure though).
