KING'S X Drummer In Stable Condition After Suffering Heart Attack

Jerry Gaskill, the 54-year-old drummer and singer for the progressive hard rock band KING'S X, suffered a heart attack Saturday night (February 25). The musician was operated on and is said to be in stable condition.

KING'S X was scheduled to launch a three-week tour on March 28 in Austin. There is no word yet on whether those dates will be postponed or canceled.

Gaskill and KING'S X bassist/vocalist Doug Pinnick have been playing together since 1979, when they met in Springfield, Missouri.

KING'S X is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its self-titled Atlantic debut this year.
