After decades of being a fan of live rock music. I have been very fortunate to have witnessed and been involved with some of the great ones! That’s where this adventure begins! I arrive at a hometown show and witnessed something spectacular! 2 stages, tons of fans old and new, from Scottie (the door guy), to the fans that couldn’t get in, sitting in the parking lot just to be an earshot.

A big shout out to Crow and the Crows Nest for being involved with rock in the Triad as long as I can remember. It made my night, not to be watching a cover band, and a bad rendition of Coyote Ugly! It’s was a solid performance by all the bands, with King’s X bringing the big guns to close the show. If the vibe at this show is any indication for the rest of their gigs, it is well worth it!

Kings X_3

After the release of their first album in 1988, the hard-rock power trio King’s X gathered a loyal cult following with their mixture of riff-heavy guitar, unusual song structures, rich vocal harmonies, and upbeat semi-evangelical messages. For several years, however, the band struggled to reach a wider audience; many critics who admired their sound had reservations about the preachiness of the lyrics, and few of the band’s songs seemed appropriate for Top 40 radio. In 1991 they broke through with their single “It’s Love,” and joined a handful of other bands, in the words of CD Review’s Edward Murray, in “attempting to transform hard rock from its consistently stale glam/pop leanings.”
