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's WireWorld 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.
