King’s X Releases Live Download To Pay For Jerry Gaskill’s Medical Bills
King’s X drummer Jerry Gaskill is continuing his recovery from the heart atttack he suffered on Feb. 26. Gaskill remains in an undisclosed hospital for extended care. “Jerry is progressing very well,” read a message posted to both his Facebook and Twitter accounts on March 11. “He’s weaning from the ventilator and going to start physical therapy soon!”
To help pay for Gaskill’s substantive medical bills, the band is selling a digital download of a classic King’s X concert. Fans can download ‘Burning Down Boston – Live At The Channel 6.12.1991’ at Molken Music for a $20 donation, with all of the money going towards his expenses.
The 14-song, 89-minute concert was recorded following the release of their 1990 album, ‘Faith Hope Love,’ which earned rave reviews for their mix of hard rock riffs, progressive musicianship and three-part Beatles harmonies. ‘Faith Hope Love’ was their highest-charting album, reaching No. 85 on the Billboard 200, and spawned the hit single, ‘It’s Love,’ which hit No. 6 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Chart.
Six songs from ‘Faith Hope Love’ are performed on ‘Burning Down Boston,’ which offers expansive takes on such favorites as ‘We Are Finding Out Who We Are,’ ‘Moanjam’ and ‘The Burning Down.’
