KING’S X LIVE IN NEW YORK – “OVER MY HEAD”
A wise man (Chuck Klosterman) once said, “If you are the kind of person who talks about music too much, there are two words that undoubtedly play an integral role in your workaday lexicon: ‘overrated’ and ‘underrated.’ This is because those two sentiments pop up in 90 percent of all musical discussions.”
So true. Fortunately for King’s X they fall into the “underrated” category. Seriously, someone pay attention: King’s X’s prolific career has taken them through many twists and turns, but somehow they’ve survived them all as the ultimate road dogs, and they continue to tour and put out quality new music every two years or so. Their musicianship — and influences on generations of bands to come — is unmatched. Dogman might even be one of my Desert Island 5 albums.
Anyway, the following footage was recorded by yours truly at a King’s X show at BB King’s in New York City, I believe in 2003. For the classic “Over My Head” from Gretchen Goes to Nebraska, Doug Pinnick was the minister of rock and the audience his choir as the crowd sang the whole thing. It was a really, really cool moment. that I happened to catch on film. Check it out.
