KING´S X

Sometimes a band emerges from nothing and hits the mark with only one hit, some other bands plug away for years without any progress, except criticism and benevolent nods.

The three musicians of KING’S X have also gone through this phase for a few years.

They found themselves in 1980 in different bands which covered songs e.g. from the Beatles, U2 or The Police. In 1983 they established a solid trio and presented a studio album of which the participants were not particularly convinced.

 

On the advice of producer and manager Sam Taylor (ZZ Top) they changed the name of the band in KING’S X in 1985, and already the debut album “Out of the Silent Planet” gave the trio presence in the radio stations. They toured among others as support act to AC/DC and their following albums always entered the TOP 100 of the US charts, but the commercial success still held off.

 

In 1996 the cooperation with the previous record company ended, the three band members followed their own projects. From 1998, KING’S X again produced some single-handedly albums. Stylistically, the trio combines different musical directions: the three voice singing is typically and creates a kind of Beatles flair, the guitar work forms elements of progressive rock, hard rock as well as grunge and soul.

 

Especially with this mix, KING’S X want to convince fans of the RockFels Festival at the Loreley – which will surely succeed.
