Real/full name:
松本秀人 (Matsumoto Hideto)
33 (born Dec 13th, 1964)
May 2nd, 1998
Died of:
Suicide by hanging
Place of origin:
Japan (Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture)


For his solo projects, his stage name was always written in all lowercase letters.

Friends and former members say that he didn't commit suicide, but his death was a "drunken accident".

Although Hideto is deceased, X Japan still considers him a member and introduces him at every concert, playing audio/video clips of his voice/guitar for some songs.
