King’s X Drummer’s Condition Improving
That’s the word from King’s X frontman Doug Pinnick, who says drummer Jerry Gaskill is improving following a heart attack February 26.
Gaskill underwent an emergency operation following his heart attack.
Pinnick commented on Facebook about Gaskill’s current condition: “Saw Jerry and he smiled and gave the thumbs up.”
Pinnick said Gaskill “seemed to recognize everyone and seems on it. Really cool. He is having some difficulty with the breathing, but overall looks sharp. Feel much better about this. Very excited. Just want to share that with you guys. Julie [Jerry’s fiancée] is amazing.”
To help Gaskill pay for his medical bills, King’s X is offering a special MP3 download-only title, called Burning Down Boston: Live at The Channel 6.12.91.
