Back in the late 80's I heard Out of the Silent Planet and was floored. I was familiar with Doug and Jerry from seeing them in one of Phil Keaggy's bands and was looking forward to the first Kings X album. Totally not what I was expecting. It rocked, it was different and I beat the album to death. Next record, Gretchen, more awesome. Ty is awesome. Doug and Jerry, awesome. These guys are killing it and would be the next big thing. Or so I thought. I was busy being married and raising kids not going to concerts or following music, but still buying each Kings X album not knowing they didn't take off.

So here's to Kings X, and all the other great bands that put out great music that should have been BIG!!! but somehow got overlooked, or fell out of favor, or whatever given the vagaries of the music biz. :)
They are still loved and appreciated.0
