I feel really bad for all the people who were going to travel to Paris to go see them. ._.;;

I was hoping to go see them at MSG, but I guess I'll just have to wait and pray they play there some time while I'm still in college!

But I really hope Yoshiki feels better.

Boy would that suck to buy concert tickets only to find out that the singer is sick. Kind of funny in a way, but not funny because the guy is sick.

Irony isn't always nice, this is a example of that.

The last two years Yoshiki has been working A LOT. I hope he takes better care of himself and recovers fully.

I can't say I'm that surprised - I had a friend who went to one of his concerts in Japan this spring, and he apparently fainted on stage towards the end. According to her, he'd been pushing himself so hard that he was unable to attend the dinner they'd held for the international guests. My thoughts are with him, he sounds like a really decent guy.

That is actually drummer/piano not singer. If you have ever seen any of their live DVDs it is no surprise considering just how hard Yoshiki pushes himself. On the Violet UK DVD there is a part where Yoshiki's finger starts to bleed as he is pounding on his piano.

I've heard of Yoshiki injuring himself several times. He puts superhuman effort into his music. I hope he recovers soon.

You should hear the sudden backlash from angry "fans."

....I don't understand how immature people can get, the guy is sick right now, isn't that more important than tickets right now?

Fangirls nothing! Smile I'm a 50 year old metal and rock fan and X-Japan's one of the best bands I've ever heard. I'm really sorry for the guy because he works so hard. Best wishes to him and I hope he takes the time to recover fully.
