SAVER TIGER disbands after several lineup changes.
After the dissolution, the members move with different bands or retire. HIDE thought about pulling out of music and returning to his carrer as beautician, but receives an invitation to join X.
At that time, X consisted of four people with only one guitarist. HIDE, who had been playing twin guitars since the SAVER TIGER days, recommended REM to fill the position to YOSHIKI. Ultimately, REM refuses the invitation and chooses to keep studying to become a professional dentist.
Bassist TOKOHITO dies in a motorcycle accident.

REM publishes an autobiography about his life and friendship with HIDE called 「Pink Cloudy Sky - ore to hide to Yokosuka ROCK STORY」 (「Pink Cloudy Sky-俺とhideと横須賀ロック・ストーリー」). Initially, the book would be released in conjunction with hide's office, HEADWAX ORGANIZATION, but a series of mistakes by the publisher led to an ugly legal dispute and different versions hitting the stores.
