What a shame neither Toshi nor YOSHIKI were at the service where HEATH was cremated but several friends were there along with close family.
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.
In true Yoshiki fashion the announcement has been delayed until tomorrow
wouldn’t be surprised if they announce that X Japan will not be active anymore
Watch them announce the new album for spring.
X JAPAN’s announcement today.
Longer statements from the members here
Has they said what happened? Heart problems?
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.
A farewell and flower offering ceremony will be held November 28th at Spotify O-EAST.
Sharing the media coverage of today’s farewell and flower offering ceremony. Yoshiki gave a speech remembering Heath’s time with X and played Endless Rain.
Toshi wasn’t there.
