From the first date of Experience Hendrix 2019 there was one point of consensus: the regular-set closing trio of dUg Pinnick, Joe Satriani, and Kenny Aronoff stole the show. The songs? ‘Crosstown Traffic,’ ‘Manic Depression,’ ‘I Don’t Live Today,’ ‘3rd Stone From the Sun,’ and ‘Voodoo Child.’ Not enough for you? Try Buddy Guy, Billy Cox, Taj Mahal, Jonny Lang, Dweezil Zappa, Doyle Bramhall II, Eric Johnson, and Chris Layton applying their skills to Hendrix as well.
Covering the eastern US in the spring, Experience Hendrix is now making its western run. Fall dates start Oct. 1 at the famed Paramount Theatre in Seattle and wrap up Oct. 22 in San Antonio.
Californian’s will be getting their second recent dose of dUg live in action, his having completed a late-summer trio of dates with 3rd Ear Experience, the desert jam collaboration led by long-time friend Robbi Robb. The two first met when both were on Megaforce and have had overlapping musical journey’s ever since (as chronicled in ‘What You Make It’).
dUg is also fresh off recording the first King’s X record in 11 years. Golden Robot Records will be releasing the still-untitled album worldwide, most likely in 2020. The band recorded at Blacksound Studio in Pasadena, Calif., with ‘Strum Sum Up’ producer Michael Parnin.
Only the tiniest snippets of music have emerged via the band’s social media pages but based on these the album sounds poised to exceed all expectations, offering both a throwback to the depth of King’s X earliest work and perhaps the band’s most modern, accessible, and varied album ever.
King’s X dates follow Experience Hendrix, starting Oct. 31 in Indianapolis (with Tommy Baldwin Band) and running through a Nov. 16 homecoming in Houston (with Karim K). New material has yet to be performed live, but it will debut sometime!
Enjoy the rock! Enjoy the read!
