King’s X’s Jerry Gaskill Suffers Heart Attack

World Entertainment, Ashley Talent International, and King’s X, unfortunately have to announce that during a scheduled minor procedure, Jerry Gaskill, has suffered a heart attack during the post operation recovery, and as a result must undergo double bypass surgery within the next 72 hours. Jerry is stable and resting comfortably in the hospital. Due to the circumstances though, King’s X has no other choice than to cancel all upcoming shows, and we hope that after Jerry recovers that we will be able to schedule make up shows in the future. Until then, all info and updates will be posted on all King’s X Sites, and we will keep you all updated on Jerry’s status. - Faith, Hope, Love….King’s X

King’s X - Gretchen Goes to Nebraska, 1989

Oh, what the heck, here’s the whole album.

King’s X - “Everybody Knows A Little Bit Of Something” (Gretchen Goes to Nebraska, 1989)

King’s X - Gretchen Goes to Nebraska, 1989

Today marks the 25th anniversary of what many fans regard as King’s X’s magnum opus. I don’t even remember the circumstances surrounding my discovery of this album. I just remember that one day it didn’t exist for me, and the next I couldn’t imagine a world without it.

Many words have been written and much has been said about this album that, for many, defined the King’s X sound, and I feel completely inadequate to add any more than to simply state that Gretchen will remain one of my favorite albums of all time for a very, very long time to come.

Happy anniversary, Gretchen Goes to Nebraska!

King’s X - “Vegetable” (Manic Moonlight, 2001)

As most King’s X fans would probably agree, Manic Moonlight is far from my favorite release. It saw the trio branch out into sonic experimentation with samples, loops, drum machines, and the like, which threw most of us a curve to say the least. But man if Ty Tabor doesn’t just totally rip it up on guitar on this track!

And the groove, man, the groove…

KXM - “Gunfight” (KXM, 2014)

I think a band like King’s X is incredible. They’re one of the greatest and not sufficiently recognized bands.

We played our hearts out. We always did. We’ve never not given 120%.

My career started at 38, so I always try to tell people don’t give up on it if you believe. Just keep doing it.
