Yoshiki: The Biggest Rock Star You’ve Never Heard Of Invades America: Music + Books: Details

September 27, 2010

Yoshiki Hayashi, drummer and creative mastermind behind Japan’s biggest rock band, X Japan, is calm amid the chaos in the VIP Room at L.A.’s Club Nokia, where he is both directing and starring in the video for his band’s upcoming single, “Born to Be Free.” He floats past a horde of extras dressed in Hot Topic Goth and stops to examine a skyscraping woman in black vinyl leggings, her face pancaked in white foundation. He says, “The corset on the vampire needs to be tighter.” No sooner does a P.A. give the corset’s three belts a good yank, prompting its wearer to gasp for air, than another one approaches Yoshiki with two pairs of fangs, and offers, “This one’s more jagged, this one’s a little sexier.” The story line calls for the vampire-cum-dominatrix to track down Yoshiki in a crowded nightclub and to sink one of these into his neck. Yoshiki studies the fangs intently. “I’ll take the sexy ones,” he says.
