King’s X Drummer Released From Hospital After Heart Attack, Seeking Donations for Medical Expenses
King's X drummer Jerry Gaskill, who suffered a heart attack on Feb. 25 and underwent emergency surgery, has finally been discharged from the hospital. Gaskill was released on Wednesday, March 21, after more than three weeks under a doctor's care.
Despite the good news that the skinsman is out of the hospital, he did rack up major medical bills while there. To help offset the cost, King's X are offering up an exclusive download of 'Burning Down Boston: Live at The Channel 6.12.91.' The release is only available via download. It was recorded while the band was touring in support of their 1990 'Faith Hope Love' album and is a piece of their history.
It's not the full performance, since a few songs were removed due to tape damage. Three bonus tracks have been added for an additional 15 minutes of audio from the same gig.
If any fans are able to make an additional donation to help with Gaskill's medical bills, checks can be sent to the following address: Jerry Gaskill, c/o World Entertainment Inc., P.O. Box 3095, Sea Bright, NJ 07760.
Realize that 100 percent of the donation will be used to defray the drummer's medical expenses. Please note that he is an individual and not a registered charity, so the donation is a gift and therefore not tax deductible.
