|Richard Fortus main lagi ama X Japan|| |
Ada berita tentang kemungkinan Richard Fortus dari Guns n Roses bakalan main lagi ama X Japan for some upcoming tours/ concerts.
- Quote :
Big Pat - What led up to you performing the shows with X Japan?
Richard Fortus - I've known Yoshiki for years. I'd done sessions that he was producing and I'd done some work for some artists that were on his label. I went to Tokyo to play with one of his artists for the launch of his label. Then I ran in to him at his studio while i was working on a movie score. We spoke and he told me that he'd heard that Robin and I had played "Endless Rain" while GN'R was in Japan. A few weeks later he called and asked if i'd be interested in being a guest guitarist for the X Japan reunion shows.
Big Pat - Will you be doing any touring this summer? If so,with who?
Richard Fortus - I don't really want to tour right now. I'm going to be doing some shows with the Furs and possibly some more shows with X Japan and also with a Danish band called the Storm. I played on their record and they are good friends. Other than that, i'd much rather be at home playing on different records and composing film/ads and video game scores, as well as writing with different artists.
Big Pat - You and Robin played X Japan's "Endless Rain" as part of your
guitar duet during some of GN'R's Japanese shows in July 2007. Why that
song? Who picked it?
Richard Fortus - No comment on this question.
"I'd like to thank X Japan and their fans for the kindness and generosity they showed me while i was in Japan. It was such an incredible honor to be asked to share their stage! This was an event that i will never forget. The last night especially was very magical and incredibly emotional. Hide was a star of such magnitude that nobody will ever fill the hole he left. It was an honor to be able to pay tribute to him. I hope that i am able to do more shows with X Japan in the future."
