King’s X Ready To Go Back To Nebraska
King’s X are planning to take the album Gretchen Goes To Nebraska on the road.
Talking exclusively to Classic Rock, bassist/vocalist Doug Pinnick said: “This could be the next thing we do. We like the idea of doing the whole of that record [the band's second, released in 1989] with a great light show, as part of something we’d call An Evening With King’s X. It wouldn’t be a full-blown tour, playing every hell-hole for three months. But we’d select specific, quality venues, make it special for the fans.”
The trio – Pinnick, guitarist Ty Tabor and drummer Jerry Gaskill – are also preparing both a live DVD and studio album.
“We’re editing a show we did in London for release as a DVD next year. Then we’ll think about going into the studio. What I’d love to do is get in a producer who’ll really push us and demand more from the band. Too often we’ve had producers who’ve just said: ‘You guys are great. Just do what you do.’ But I wanna get back to the situation where someone really drives us to deliver.
“I don’t wish to return to the days of Sam Taylor [the band's original producer/manager], because he was more like a coach, both encouraging and blasting us. I’m too old for that. But we don’t want the next album to be comfortable and easy.”
