X Japan have sold more than 30-million albums, singles and videos, headlined and sold out Japan's 55,000-seat Tokyo Dome 18 times and has started playing to tens of thousands of fans outside of Japan. The band's look and sound sparked a global interest in Japanese entertainment, especially with the Japanese cultural rock phenomenon, Visual-Kei, a movement X Japan pioneered that went on to become a catalyst for today's worldwide Anime craze.
Yoshiki, the band's leader/songwriter/drummer and classically-trained pianist, has been referred to by his first name only throughout his professional career, and is arguably Asia's most influential musical artist and biggest rock icon. According to one industry insider, "Yoshiki is to Japan what Bono is to the UK." The members of X Japan include Yoshiki, Toshi (vocals), Pata (guitarist), Heath (bass), and Sugizo (guitar).
