    I know what it is, but the whole thing put together was rather, uh... strange.

    It was ripped from one of his numerous live dvds or something.

    HIDE was a massive fan of Kiss, and it was HIDE, NOT X Japan, that created the look of the original V-kei. He was a beautician by trade and just happened to be a guitar player that Yoshiki found when he was trying to put X together. The look entirely came from HIDE.

    Also, Vinnie Vincent is fucked up in the head, can't figure out if he wants to be a she or not. HIDE had a girlfriend who he was living with when he died. He lived a very normal life, so that isn't a fair comparison.

    His beautician skills were certainly stellar

    Very fair comparison. Vinnie Vincent circa 86 is very much an influence for Visual Kei.

    Except HIDE, in PUBLICLY MADE INTERVIEWS, has said one of his biggest influences was Kiss, NOT vinnie vincent.

    :lol:

    Hide can actually play guitar. Vinnie Vincent can't even get the sped-up recording right to hide his sloppy playing. Also VV didn't save Kiss because you can't save something beyond redemption.

    In Conclusion:

    Alive Hide > Dead Hide > Vinnie Vincent. :fawk:

    Two whiny Japanese triggered by Vinnie Vincent's influence on Visual Kei. :lol:

    I would, but he doesn't seem important enough to bother.

    You're grossly overestimating Vinnie Vincent as an entity. :lol:

    It was Ace Frehley actually. :yesway:

    In any case, Vinnie Vincent is terrible regardless of who influenced who. Hide's decomposing corpse is still better than any composing VV has put out alive.

    Don't bring your bigoted homophobic hate speech in here! What may be "normal" for one person may not be "normal" for the next person. So keep this a safe place for everyone and have an open mind and stop being so anti-LGBTQRBG! Do you want Trump to win????

    What is happening? At first I thought it was sarcasm. Then I was like “maybe they’re serious?” THEN I was like “maybe one is serious and one is joking, but which is which?”

    Can we just get back to worshipping our lord and savior the Ironbird?
