In this day and age of all these new supergroups coming out from Rock Star: Supernova, to Damnocracy, to a few others that's in the works. It shouldn't be a surprise that this craze has reached over to the Far East even. It looks like Yoshiki (formerly and now recently of X JAPAN), Gackt (ex-MALICE MIZER), Miyavi, and Sugizo (ex-LUNA SEA) will be touring America shortly after their performance at the Anime Expo next month. They've announced the name of their new Japanese supergroup.... Skin. Dunno who's gonna be doing what in the band other than Yoshiki on drums, Sugizo on guitar, and Gackt doing vocals most likely. Miyavi looks kinda out of place with them as he's the youngest member of this group.

A lot of you don't know much about the musicians I'm spectulating, but Yoshiki has had his hand in a lot of American music in the past couple years. He is responsible for discovering Osaka psychos Dir en grey, which have been discussed here by myself and alien_nation. Those of you that love the Kidneythieves song that was on Queen of the Damned... they were signed to his label Extasy International. He owns what formerly once was One on One Recording Studios, now dubbed Extasy Studios North, where a lot of bands recorded like Metallica, Madonna, etc.

Yoshiki's also collaborated with Queen drummer Roger Taylor and Beatles producer George Martin. He also did a classical cover of Black Diamond for the Kiss Tribute album Kiss My Ass. Nicole from the Pussycat Dolls was once a vocalist for his upcoming project Violet UK, he fired her for doing the PCD. Yoshiki also has provided some score and a song for the upcoming horror film Catacombs, starring Pink. Also above for the X JAPAN mention when I put formerly and now recently. He and Toshi have reunited after 10 years of not speaking to each other and have declared that the legendary Japanese visual-kei band X JAPAN will reunite in December.

Here's a link about them: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skin_%28Japanese_band%29

Will do, cause I know I'd love to see this group. I loved Gackt when he was in MALICE MIZER, and I been wanting to see Yoshiki myself.
