Ladies, ladies, ladies; Yoshiki has left the building! But not before the international rock star from Japan documented his intimate performance at the GRAMMY Museum exhibit launch party on Wednesday. We handed the well-deserving star the reins to the Yahoo Music instagram and reveled in the awesomeness that is Yoshiki.

Best known for being the pianist and co-founder of one of Japan's most successful heavy metal bands, X Japan, Yoshiki's unique style, poise and talents (not to mention that gorgeous hair!) made him a standout in the generally homogenous genre of classical music. His album Yoshiki Classical fuses classical with his roots in metal, punk and glam, debuting at #1 on the iTunes classical charts of ten countries and in the top 10 of the Billboard classical chart.

This ain't your parents' classical music. Just look at Yoshiki's signature crystal piano!

 

And a disco ball this massive would never be rolled out for any other classical music star.
