‘King’s X’ Drummer To Begin Recording New Solo Album In November


King’s X drummer Jerry Gaskill and Nashville-based songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist D.A. Karkos will track drums for Gaskill‘s solo record in late November with legendary producer/engineer/mixer Michael Wagener at Wagener‘s WireWorld studio in Nashville. The rest of the record will be recorded at Karkos‘ Underdog Studio in Nashville.

Jerry writes: “One month from today, I will be in Nashville to start recording drums for my next solo record at Michael Wagener‘sWireWorld Studio. What a gift and what an honor! Me, my friend D.A. Karkos [who I’m making this record with] and Michael are all very excited. Can’t wait for everyone to hear it. Just thought you might want to know…”

D.A. adds: “Some great news for the Jerry Gaskill project! A month from now… Jerry and I are heading over to Michael Wagener‘s WireWorld studio to track drums for Jerry‘s record! Words can’t describe the way I [we] feel. Way beyond excited about this! This is HUGE!”

D.A. Karkos, who also plays lead guitar in John Corabi‘s band, produced/recorded Corabi‘s new album, Unplugged, at Underdog.

Wagener produced the last two King’s X albums, Ogre Tones and XV.

In 2005, Karkos was guitarist and backing vocalist for Gaskill‘s well-received solo performances on the East Coast and became songwriting foil and producer afterward. He helped Jerry write and arrange the song Julie, which appeared on King’s X‘s fifteenth album.
