King’s X drummer Jerry Gaskill continues to heal, after a serious heart attack suffered on February 26 scuttled a planned tour.

The band has issued a statement saying that he’s moved out of the intensive care unit and into a regular hospital bed. A sure sign of Gaskill’s improvement: “He has expressed that he wants food and something to drink,” King’s X said in a statement posted to its Web site.

King’s X is selling a 1991 live Mp3 concert from Boston to help offset Gaskill’s medical expenses. A complete track listing for Burning Down Boston: Live At The Channel (6.12.1991) is below. The concert is available for download here: http://molkenmusic.com/store/shop/details.php?id=50. Cost is $20.

“Thanks to everyone for the outpouring of support,” King’s X said. “Jerry’s bills are still mounting but your help so far has been incredible. Thanks to everyone!”

Here’s a look back at our recent thoughts on King’s X. Click through the titles for more …

KING’S X – XV (2008): X equals 10 and V equals 5. Fourteen albums bearing the King’s X moniker and one by Sneak Preview, the early version of the band that simply bore a different name. Made sense to me, in a weird way. Michael Wagener, who really tightened things up when he produced the band’s previous album, Ogre Tones, was back to crack the whip for XV. So there were deep, driving grooves, catchy melodies, and the always incredible guitar work of Ty Tabor. Why this band has continually suffered from near anonymity is beyond me. Same old story, isn’t it? You know what to do about that, don’t you?

KING’S X – LIVE ALL OVER THE PLACE (2004): Three-part harmonies, a verified guitar-god genius, and some of the lowest, thickest, sludgiest bass around — King’s X is like the Beatles of metal, but they go year-after-year depressingly ignored. They scored a few minor hits in the early 1990s and then pretty much sunk off the radar screen of mainstream music, but these guys have, for the most part, turned out consistently good albums all along. After all this time, they finally released a live album that shows what a great live band they are. It’s totally raw — straight from the soundboard — but the energy of the show carries the somewhat dry recording.
