X JAPAN's HEATH passed away at age 55

What a shame neither Toshi nor YOSHIKI were at the service where HEATH was cremated but several friends were there along with close family.

RIP Heath

and they made sure when they visited the body they would be at separate times so they didn’t bump into each other apparently. Just sad.

Sexx George from Ladies Room made a comment remembering Heath, as well as addressing the harassment he & the members of X have received since Heath’s passing.

One thing Geogre mentions is how Heath hated conflict, and that’s one thing I’ve seen a few times - how he was a unifying force in a lot of ways. It’s really unfortunate to see so much bitterness arise within the fandom, and even seemingly between the members again, in the wake of his passing.

Has they said what happened? Heart problems? :cold_sweat:

They did. It’s in the first paragraph on the official site.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of XJAPAN’s esteemed bass player HEATH after his battle with colorectal cancer, on October 29th, 2023, at the age of 55.

I am so sorry, thank you buddy.
Why are young people dying from cancer or other illnesses? Its so unfair… while murderers and rapists are healthy until 95… the world is truly an unfair place.
