King’s X drummer Jerry Gaskill suffered heart attack {currently recovering / US Tour canceled}

26th Feb 12 (Sun) 6 comments

Updated as health news comes in (see below)…

Earlier this morning (2/26/12), news surfaced on Facebook that King’s X drummer Jerry Gaskill suffered a heart attack and is currently in the ICU.  Keep him in your thoughts and hope he gets stellar medical supervision & help!

Obviously, no word on how this will impact the upcoming KX tour (that was to kick off at the end of March), but (tour canceled – see below) I know any KX fan would want him to get better versus over-exerting himself on the road!  His health is way more important, but we hope he’s healthy to hit the road after some rest & recovery.

From bassist/singer dUg Pinnick said on FB: “He was operated on and is in stable condition at the hospital. Were all waiting for more info.”  Then posted this on twitter…

Jerry’s drumtech Chris ‘JRAB’ Thomas has a post in this blog’s comments section.  Also stay tuned to www.kingsxrocks.com for add’l updates.

“heavily sedated and on the ventilator, they are going to
try to take the balloon pump out tomorrow”

2/28/12 update from dUg and Blabbermouth

In light of Jerry‘s sudden hospitalization, all previously announced North American tour dates for KING’S X have been cancelled. Jerry will be taking the time to recover back to full health so that he can hopefully join the band behind the drums at some point in the future.
