About HIDE

After starting his career as lead guitarist for the metal group X-Japan, Hide (real name: Hideto Matsumoto) went on to become an iconic musician in Japan during the 1990s. During his short solo career, he experimented with everything from catchy pop/rock sounds to hard-edged industrial, released two highly successful alternative rock albums and a number of equally successful singles, and co-founded an English-language side project. His death at age 33 shocked fans around the world; he remains one of Japan's most beloved and influential artists. ~ Katherine Fulton
