Any speculation as to why he was fired?

my guess is that he was trying to weaken a bit Yoshiki's undisputable and self-centered leadership by asking him to accept all the members' inputs in composing songs (also, I think he made a point about everybody being treated equally from an economic standpoint). Basically he wanted a bit of democracy in the band, imo. He definitely didn't want X to be a monarchy, rather a shared project.

however Taiji never made a mystery about the fact that Yoshiki is "both an angel and a devil", these words are taken verbatim from his autobiography.

another guess is that there were drug related or drinking problems. I bet that Yoshiki was willing to put his life on the line to keep X as clean as possible in order to think through carefully about their debut in the U.S. at the time.

We just kept digging the ditch deeper and deeper. So during a conversation about royalties, everything was decided.

Yoshiki said, "Please quit."

And I answered, "I understand. I'll quit."

That was all I said. Yoshiki had only one reply to me.

"I'm sorry."

"according To Taijis Book. "
