    With the release of THE STRANGE CASE OF…, I fell in love with Lzzy Hale. So much so, in fact, that I jokingly got down on one knee and asked her to marry me at Rock On The Range two years ago (a proposal that she didn’t flat out turn down, so maybe there’s still hope!!). Let’s be

    Let’s just call it the way it is. It’s been a very, very long time since Marilyn Manson recorded a really good, memorable release that any of us still listen to on a regular basis. To many, the would probably says that it’s been since MECHANICAL ANIMALS back in 1998. For me personally, I’ll be a bit more

    When Black Star Riders made their decision to record under a new name instead of as Thin Lizzy, it was met with a lot of opinions. For most, I would assume they were happy that they decided to move away from the name they had been touring under. For many, I'm sure there was a lot of

Image: Jerry Gaskill, King's X, Pitriff, News, Interviews, CD ReviewsNashville-based vocalist, songwriter, producer, guitarist, bassist D.A. KarKos has issued the following update on the Jerry Gaskill (KING'S X drummer) solo record:

"As many of you know, before he had his heart attack, we've been busy demo-ing ideas together for Jerry's upcoming solo record. So let me fill you in with where we're at with it and what the plan is...

As of now, we have 11 killer songs that we believe will be some of Jerry's (and my) best work to date. And when the time comes, we plan on having some very special guest musicians/friends lend some of their talents to the record as well. Needless to say (but I'm saying it anyway), we are very excited about all of this!

And to quote Jerry speaking of his recent heart attack and recovery from his public thank you video: 'This is a really bad situation that I think has turned into a really good situation.' There is no doubt in our minds that we we'll see evidence of this truth on this record."

The Karkos/Gaskill partnership album will be released on EMMJAM records.

To help Jerry pay his medical bills, King's X are offering up a live MP3 concert called Burning Down Boston - Live At The Channel 6.12.1991. This release was edited and mastered from a stereo FOH recording. While the audio is far from perfect sonically, the performance documents yet another magical night on tour while supporting the Faith Hope Love album.

While many of the song titles are familiar, the band expands many of the cuts featured here, including performances that are blistering ('Moanjam'),heavy and funk-laden ('We Are Finding Who We Are'), beautiful ('The Burning Down'), and truly transcendental ('Over My Head'). A few songs from the show were omitted due to tape damage. However, included are three bonus tracks (an additional 15 minutes) from the same show that were not presented in the main tracklisting.

All recordings previously unreleased: 14 songs, 89 minutes.

Tracklisting:

'We are Finding Who We Are'
'Mission'
'Far, Far Away'
'We Were Born To Be Loved'
'It's Love Intro'
'It's Love'
'I'll Never Get Tired Of You'
'Visions'
'Over My Head'
'Moanjam'
'The Burning Down'
'Talk To You' (bonus track)
'Fall On Me' (bonus track)
'Power Of Love' (bonus track)
