If you've been wondering where our moto-metal guru, Chris, has been lately, he's been looked in his creative lab working on a good old fashioned rock and roll autobiography.
The subject is Doug Pennick of King's X fame and all the details are below.
We're super excited for Chris
and hope our loyal Geeks will give his work a read.
A little more than 30 years after King’s X made its UK debut at the Marquee Club, Soho, London, hard copies of ‘What You Make It: The Authorized Biography of Doug Pinnick’ will be available via Amazon.com at midnight London time, Friday, June 8, 2018.
The UK-centered release time not only pays homage to the historic bond between band and country but will make the book available for order to US customers at 6 pm, Thursday, June 7!
Examples of hard rock musicians who’ve appealed to multiple generations are pleasantly frequent. Examples of such musicians who simultaneously straddle the black and white worlds, the gay and straight worlds, and the Christian and secular worlds are much less so.
Doug (dUg) Pinnick—bassist, vocalist, songwriter, frontman, and focal point of King’s X—is that rare musician. His story is equal parts rock n’ roll survival and personal evolution. Sometimes these paths support one another, more often they clash. Their ultimate resolution is not just Doug’s story, or a musician’s story, it is a universally human story.
Telling Doug’s tale requires also telling that of King’s X, and ‘What You Make It’ goes further into the details of this beloved band’s evolution than any work so far.
Those who can’t wait to get their physical copy of ‘What You Make It’ (or just want an e-copy as well) can pre-order NOW for Kindle by clicking here.
