TOSHI to Take a Break: Announcement Made in Blog

2009-11-04
blog / X JAPAN

On October 30th X JAPAN member TOSHI announced in his blog that he will suspend all activities due to intercostal nerve pain. TOSHI sent a message to his fans. "I've become seriously ill and have a bad case of intercostal nerve pain. I'm also having trouble talking. I need to take an extended break to recover. I will come back as soon as I can. I'm looking forward to the day we meet again!" On the official website of his management agency the reason for the long break was given as "Becoming ill from extreme amount of stress caused by being slandered for years."

TOSHI postponed all in-store events that were to be held on October 24th. It was clear from the blog entry made the same day that TOSHI was very angry. He heatedly claimed that from over 10 years ago 'a bunch of vicious lawyers and evil reporters' have 'spread baseless rumors' about the healing seminar backed by TOSHI and that has caused his intercostal nerve pains. Also, he talked about how he and his 'friends' were sued, and that he felt the court's decision was 'absurd' and 'unacceptable'.
