    hide (born Hideto Matsumoto) was a highly influential guitarist and musician from Japan. hide's career started in 1980, but he didn't truly make join a known project until 1984, when he joined with Saver(Saber) Tiger. The band split in 1987, and that is when hide made his breakthrough as an artist when he joined the extremely popular metal band, X Japan. When the band took a hiatus, hide used the time to embark onhis own highly successful solo career. Things were getting better and better in his solo career, and his highly anticipated thirdsolo album, "Ja, Zoo" was in the works. However, in May of 1998, hide hanged himself in his Tokyo apartment while intoxicated one night. His third solo album, "Ja Zoo", was finally released months later, which (presumably because of hide's tragic suicide) peaked atnumber 1 on the Oricon charts. His legacy still remains today, and he is arguably one of the utmost important figures in visual kei history, along with his fellow X Japan members. « hide
