X-interview translated for the first time!

Hideto hide Matsumoto

Hideto hide Matsumoto

May 2nd 1998, Hideto (hide) Matsumoto was found dead in his apartment – one of the greatest rock musicians of all time was gone.

Hence I dedicate my thoughts to this man today who still, after so many years, have such a huge impact on my life. (It’s still May 1st in Sweden, but May 2nd in Japan)

To me, hide was and will always be the number one star on the visual kei sky.

I don’t think that hide would like us to be sad, and that’s why I will try to bring some joy in our hearts, through joyful memories.

I will show you a interview with X-Japan, made just before the “Rose and Blood” tour. I don’t think it has been translated before (at least I haven’t found it) and I’m very  happy that my friend Hide (with capital H) have helped me with this. So enjoy!


Rest in peace, Pink Spider!
