Suit up for your next show in this statement piece - the Medicom Toy x AMPLIFIER Hide T-Shirt! Featuring a portrait of the artist 'HIDE'.

The music industry has always been about creating and preserving sound, but it's also about something more profound - the legacy of music history. This is precisely what "Amplifier" is all about. This initiative is driven by a desire to pass on Japan's rich musical heritage to future generations.

One individual who played an essential role in this heritage was Hideto Matsumoto. Known professionally as HIDE, he was a highly respected Japanese musician, singer-songwriter, and record producer. He gained global recognition as the lead guitarist for the rock band X Japan from 1987 to 1997 and as a solo artist from 1993 onwards.
While he was primarily known for his musical talents, HIDE also had a passion for design. The guitar in the photo is a testament to this. He personally designed and painted it, and the unique pattern featured on it also appears on the BE@RBRICK "Psychedelic Paisley". It's a testament to his creativity and ability to express himself in various mediums.

Sadly, Hideto Matsumoto passed away in May 1998, leaving behind a rich legacy of music and design. However, through initiatives like "Amplifier", his memory and contributions to Japan's music history will continue to be celebrated and remembered for generations.
