    Hideto Matsumoto (December 13, 1964 – May 2, 1998 in Yokosuka, Japan), or hide, was a Visual Kei / J-Rock musician.

    After achieving stardom as a guitarist in the influential japanese group X Japan, hide also took part in the mainly American populated collaboration Zilch. Hide enjoyed additional success as a solo artist, in which he provided his own vocals in addition to songwriting and playing guitar. He also organized and creatively managed the group hide with Spread Beaver.

    Hide died on May 2, 1998. After a night of drinking, hide was found the next day strangled by a towel hanging from a doorknob. Although police declared his death to be suicide, friends and fans alike have openly disputed this claim.

    The hide museum in Yokosuka was posthumously constructed in hide's honor. It opened on the second anniversary of his death on May 2, 2000. The museum featured many of his costumes, guitars, and personal possessions. The hide museum closed on September 25, 2005 due to the lack of funds.
