He's the Japanese rock star turned composer that's taken his home country by storm, but how much do you know about Yoshiki Hayashi, drummer with hugely popular metal band X Japan? We take a look at his new classical album, which features contributions from legendary Beatles producer George Martin, the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Tokyo City Philharmonic.
