That's just how it is.

- 布袋が弾いてたなyoshikiと一触即発な感じになってhideが謝りに行ってたらしいけどHotei played with them, right?

- 横須賀の展示館まだあるん？Is the museum still there in Yokosuka?http://img.4travel.jp/img/tcs/t/album/lrg/10/17/76/lrg_10177696.jpg?20070905010201
- あいつのギターヘッタクソで聞けたもんじゃねえだろBut that guy's guitar playing was so bad, it was barely listenable, right?
- 解散前後は一番人気かもなあ林さんがあれだったせいでHe's probably the most popular member around their final days as a band.
Mainly because Hayashi-san (Yoshiki) was like that.
- あんな格好して難病のガキを見舞ったり寄付とかも結構やってたぐう聖Despite wearing clothes like that, he did visit a kid who had a disease, and was even active in charity events-- he really was like a saint.
- カリスマ的な人気があったのは1st一般受けするようになったのが2nd～RocketDiveあたりんで死亡特需でカリスマポップスターよHis 1st album had a charismatic popularity.

And then he became this charismatic pop star because of his death.

- ピンクスパイダーは死んだすぐ後に発売死ぬ前から発売は決まっていて、プロモーションとかは先取りして撮ってあったから生前のイメージがあるけど急逝で爆発的に売れた感は否めない"Pink Spider" was released immediately after he died.
It was already scheduled for release when he was still alive, and the PV was already shot, so there's this image that this song was released when he was still alive. But you still can't deny the fact that the sales only exploded because of his death.
- 今PV見ても古臭さなど微塵も感じないあんま知らんけどカリスマ性はすげーと思うわHis PVs still look new up to this day, they don't give that feeling of ancientness.
I'm not that knowledgeable, but I do think that he was really charismatic.
- インタビューやとおばあちゃんが自分よりハデや言うてたけどhideよりハデなばーちゃんてどんだけやねんHe did say in an interview that his grandma was more gaudy than him.
Then how gaudy was that granny if she's above hide in that category?

Never would I have imagined that I'd be recording Iitomo.
- お台場のhideミュみてきたI went to see the hide museum in Odaiba
- V系好きじゃないけどrocket diveは好きだったI don't like Visual-kei but I liked "Rocket Dive"
- ほんとカッコイイよなあもっと早く気付くべきだったHe was really cool.
I should have noticed that sooner.
- 普通に今聞いてもかっこＥHe's still cool even if you listen to him now
- ヨシキが神格化されてる理由が分からないバイトでライブ聞いてたが普通に下手というかあれより上手いドラマー一杯おるやん真也のが好きですｷﾘｯI don't know the reason why Yoshiki is being regarded as someone like a god.
I listened to their live concert at my part-time job, but he's not even that good. I think there are tons of drummers who are better than him.
I prefer Shinya to him.
- なお、最近のガキどもはHIDEはおろかXも知らない模様X＜バンプオブチキンとかさすがにネタだよなAnd it seems that the kids nowadays don't even know HIDE, let alone X.

- 一番ギターうまかったのってHIDEでもPATAでもなくTAIJIだとおもうわBut the best guitarist wasn't HIDE nor PATA, but TAIJI.
- エバーフリーは今聞いてもやばいこれは思い出補正ではない疾走感溢れる名曲だわさ"Everfree" is still so good even if you listen to it now.
This isn't because of nostalgia; it's just a great song that overflows with that sense of speed.
- ロケットダイヴを最初に聴いた時には、身体に電撃が走ったわThe first time I listened to "Rocket Dive", electricity ran through my body.
- 三浦の墓場にこいつの墓あるがいつ行っても新しい花が供えてあってすげーわThis guy's grave is in Miura Cemetery, but every time I go there, there's always fresh flowers offered there. It's really amazing.
