    I haven't seen King's X in a few years, it was nice to see them again especially at a nice place like BB King's blues club.

    Anyone else go?
    What did you think of the show? I personally thought they were awesome and on top of their game.

    Doug P. was getting pissed early on in the show that a fan or air conditioner was making him cold. Later on, he stopped in the middle of a song to complain again which I thought was pretty funny. Overall, a great performance by one of the best bands around.

    I'm sure they'll get across the pond sooner or later.

    You lucky devil! I remember King's X from wayyyyy back, when they had just started travelling away from Houston to play. I got to see them in some little club in S. Texas, and was *floored*. I'd just about give eye teeth to see them, now.

    I saw them many times back in the late '80s - early '90s... good to see they're still alive and kicking live! I'm long overdue to see them again.

    I saw them two years ago with Fishbone!! It was an amazing show. Doug P was jaw-dropping I hope they come through here again I will go in a heartbeat.

    Yeah, I've always been impressed with watching Doug live. He never missed a note the other night, and his tone was just massive (as always)

    Looks like he was using the same rack of equipment I saw him with 3 years ago, same ampeg cabs, same haircut :D

    I forgot I took a few crappy pics with my phone. I wish I had my digital camera, I was right up front with so many good photo opportunities.
