Footage From X Japan's Reunion Concerts With Fortus

Monday • March 31, 2008

Professionally filmed video footage of reactivated Japanese rockers X Japan's March 28, 2008 concert at the Tokyo Dome in Tokyo, Japan can be viewed below.

Performing with X Japan at the band's three reunion shows at the Tokyo Dome this past weekend were Guns N' Roses guitarist Richard Fortus and former Limp Bizkit and current Black Light Burns member Wes Borland.

Commented Borland in a posting on his MySpace blog, "Playing with X Japan was one of the coolest things I've ever done.

"Thanks to everyone who came to the shows.

"Richard Fortus and I tried to do our best with Sugizo to fill the massive hole left in the band where Hide once stood.

"I'm forever honored to have been part of the experience.

"To all the X Japan fans that didn't think I belonged there: I'm sorry if I ruined your time. I was trying to help my friend Yoshiki in the only way I knew how. I hope you can forgive the intrusion.

"I had an amazing time and I think the shows turned out to be really special. There may be more to come."

X Japan's influential lead guitarist Hideto "Hide" Matsumoto committed suicide in May 1998.

Fortus and fellow GN'R guitarist Robin Finck played X Japan's "Endless Rain" as part of their guitar duet during some of GN'R's Japanese shows in July 2007.

X Japan's new song, "I.V.", topped iTunes' daily charts upon its release on January 23 in both Overall Sales and Rock categories.

X Japan is the first Asian artist to chart high worldwide on iTunes and the Billboard music site Billboard.biz.

Regarding hide's death...

From Wikipedia:

While authorities deemed Matsumoto's death a suicide, several of Hide's friends and colleagues stated that they believed it to be an accident, among them X Japan co-founder Yoshiki Hayashi and former X Japan bassist Taiji Sawada. This notion is supported by the fact that no suicide note was left and Sawada theorizes in his autobiography, that at the night of his death, Hide may have been practicing a technique to relieve upper back and neck pains which guitarists can suffer from continuous use of a shoulder strap. The technique involved was practiced by the X Japan members during their touring days and required the use of a towel and a door knob or handle. According to Sawada, Matsumoto may have fallen asleep in his intoxicated state, becoming caught and strangling himself.

"I'd like to thank X Japan and their fans for the kindness and generosity they showed me while i was in Japan. It was such an incredible honor to be asked to share their stage! This was an event that i will never forget. The last night especially was very magical and incredibly emotional. Hide was a star of such magnitude that nobody will ever fill the hole he left. It was an honor to be able to pay tribute to him. I hope that i am able to do more shows with X Japan in the future."
