King’s X

King’s X drummer Jerry Gaskill recently suffered a hear attack and is currently out of the ICU and in stable condition. Jerry faces a mountain of medical expenses so the band has released a free concert download from their 1991 Faith Hope Love Tour (Burning Down Boston) in exchange for donating $20 to Jerry’s fund. Here’s the first track from that concert, We Are Finding Who We Are:

King’s X is my first truly ‘progressive’ love (with thanks to Mr. Kramer). The title track from their 1990 album release, Faith, Hope, Love is below. The imagery of their lyrics, the tight soaring choruses mixed with epic guitar riffs and grinding dirges make King’s X a pleasure to listen to, especially when taking epic road trips to New Orleans.
