Yoshiki Scheduled to Undergo Surgery

Yoshiki, leader of X JAPAN and solo classical composer, has announced via his website that he will undergo emergency surgery on May 16 in Los Angeles, CA, to place an artificial disc in his spine. The musician's rigorous drumming through the years has contributed his development of a condition called cervical foraminal stenosis, a narrowing of the cervical disc space that causes pain. Yoshiki's condition has worsened over the past six months, leading to increased numbness and pain in his left arm that has begun to affect his musical performances. After medical consultation, he has decided to undergo surgery immediately to treat the condition. The musician has stated on his Twitter that he is scared, but he's still planning on performing in more upcoming X JAPAN shows. Yoshiki's May shows have been canceled and other X JAPAN activities and solo appearances may be rescheduled.
