‘King’s X’ Drummer ‘Jerry Gaskill’ Is ‘Thankful For All The Support So Far’


Jerry Gaskill, drummer for legendary rockers King’s X, suffered a heart attack on February 26 and was rushed to the hospital. After undergoing an emergency operation, Jerry was placed in intensive care.

In a new online posting, King’s frontman Doug Pinnick writes, “I was walking to the grocery store a few minutes ago, as I was walking out the store my cell phone rang, the ID said Jerry Gaskill! He was calling from the hospital to say hi and that he’s going to be alright. He sounded great! Totally understanding everything he’s been through and mentioned how thankful he was for all the support so far. He made me laugh like he always does. It’s a great day!! That black flag has lifted and every day he will get better.” 

To help Gaskill pay his medical bills, King’s X is offering a special MP3 download-only title, Burning Down Boston: Live at The Channel 6.12.91. This release was edited and mastered from a stereo FOH (front-of-house) recording. While the audio is far from perfect sonically, the performance documents yet another magical night on tour while supporting the Faith Hope Love album. The band expands many of the cuts featured here, including performances that are blistering Moanjam, heavy and funk-laden We Are Finding Who We Are, beautiful The Burning Down, and truly transcendental Over My Head. A few songs from the show were omitted due to tape damage. However, three bonus tracks have been included [an additional 15 minutes] from the same show that were not presented in the main track listing.

The music is available via www.molkenmusic.com, and fans wishing to make additional contributions can do so by sending checks to Jerry Gaskill, c/o World Entertainment Inc., PO Box 3095, Sea Bright, N.J. 07760. For more info on ‘Burning Down Boston: Live at The Channel 6.12.91,’

All upcoming North American tour dates for King’s X have been cancelled. Jerry will be spending these days recovering back to full health so that he can hopefully join the band behind the drums at some point in the future.
