X JAPANのYoshikiが愛用のカワイ・クリスタル・ピアノをオークションに出します。2011年3月11日発生した東日本大地震被災者への義捐金集めのためとか。2009年5月東京ドームで演奏したあの伝説のピアノです。YOSHIKI基金主催。 X JAPAN’s Yoshiki is going to auction off his custom made priceless crystal piano that he played for X JAPAN's concerts in Tokyo Dome. The Kawai piano is to be auctioned off to help people who were affected by the M9 earthquake that hit Northern Japan on March 11, 2011. It will be held by the Yoshiki Foundation America.
地震が起きた3月11日、東京のスタジオにこもっていたYOSHIKIは、震災直後にTwitterで「Hope everybody is ok? みんな だいじょうぶ?」とファンの安否を気遣うツイートを投稿。その後、明らかになる被害の大きさに胸を痛めた彼は「自分はミュージシャン。音楽を通して自分ができることで貢献したい」と考え、X JAPANのライブに欠かせないクリスタルピアノの提供を決意した。
The Japanese-born Yoshiki, who lives in Los Angeles, felt the earthquake tremors while in a Tokyo recording studio working on X Japan's first North American album, and was shocked by the large-scale damage across Japan. "It took awhile to locate my mother, but she is, thankfully, OK, said Yoshiki. I am praying for the people here who are still trying to locate their family and friends. I've decided to help out through music."
Here is Yoshiki playing that crystal piano at the first X JAPAN USA Tour, Los Angeles concert on Sept. 25, 2010. I took it from the standing only first floor space with being pushed by crowds. It was so hot as well. ↓

X Japan has decided to postpone the release of their first U.S. single, "Jade," that had been scheduled to be released on March 15, 2011, so that they may focus their time and energies on helping with the recovery. They might hold charity concerts in near future.

This organization is also sending volunteers to help victims in Northern Japan. My friend's cousin is going to Miyagi, Japan, where there were massive earthquake and Tsunami damages. They are collecting donations from $10. 100% of the proceed will go to the victims. http://jems.org/ ( http://www.crashjapan.com/ reports their activities in Japan.)
