Metal Blade head honcho Brian Slagel tweeted about Gaskill's heart attack, posting the following message: "Best wishes and a speedy recovery to Jerry Gaskill who suffered a heart attack last night."
King's X bassist/vocalist dUg Pinnick, who has been playing with Gaskill for decades, having joined forces back in 1978, also posted a tweet (which is unedited) about his bandmate's condition, writing: "Jerry woke up pulling chords out, hes fiesty! that's a good sign! thanks everyone for prayers and good vibes!"
Thanks for the visual, Doug! Nothing, not even a heart attack, can keep Jerry Gaskill down. We're glad he hasn't lost his fighting spirit despite these circumstances.
The fate of King's X planned three-week tour, slated to kick off on March 28 in Austin, Texas is undetermined at press time.
Noisecreep sends best wishes out to Gaskill and hope he makes a full recovery.
