Okay so, yesterday when I was trying to fall asleep I had this thought.  So..I know that the story is that the nickname „Pink Spider”  was given to hide by Yoshiki, and that's cool, but.... Is there any actual proof that he did give the nickname to him?

interesting fact about that song: while in the refrain "pink spider" is written in an unambiguous way (
ピンク スパイダー),  the last line in the lyrics (桃色のくもが 空を流れる…) contains the word "kumo" that could be ambiguously refer either to a cloud or a spider. So the meaning of the phrase would be "a pink spider/cloud flows through the sky"...

Yes
雲(cloud) and 蜘蛛(spider) have the same pronanciation.
But he in his song, wrote “kumo” with hiragana alphabet.(くも)
As you see, he did a pun.

I've always liked that aha, but I became curious where the nickname comes from as I've always heard that Yoshiki had given the name to him... But from what source did this information come from, if anyone can know?
