This is band is totally underrated and may be the greatest hard rock band ever.  There is soul, emotion and extreme musicianship here if one wants to find it.  I HOPE YOU DO.

King's X is one of my favorite bands, for over thirty years now! I can't wait for the long-awaited new album!

This band paid their dues in spades and are still paying them.

I was somewhat familiar with King's X and was looking into the band's music as I'm ever liking to expand my palette, but my enthusiasm was deflated with your commentary on The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and their audiences. And I like Gentle Giant too. Bigging up music and art while putting down others isn't a strategy that I find endearing,

I've never owned any of their albums but I saw them in concert once and they were great.

I love Kings X as well and have for a while but I love the Beatles too so donít be calling them lame.

The Stones were ok but never a favorite but once again no need to degrade other artists while bringing attention to one you love

Well you're entitled to your opinion but two of those bands you have mentioned are generally regarded as amongst the greatest of all time and the other one is Kings X, who every few people have heard of.

Can't wait for the new album. I've been a fan since around 1990. One of the best bands that sadly few have heard of. They really should have broken through but never did.

When Dogman came out, I thought it would finally be their hour. They got the opening slot on the Scorpions tour that year. Their performance at Woodstock was televised. The new video for "Dogman" was on regular rotation. Pearl Jam's Jeff Ament openly praised them in print, saying their "next album" (which became Dogman) would "be appreciated."

Unfortunately, the seas didn't part for the one of the best bands out there. Ear Candy came out and that's another killer album, but the buzz around it wasn't as strong.

Btw, do you like KXM (dUg Pinnick, George Lynch, Ray Luzier)? Three albums. They've got some killer songs!

I've sampled some of KXM but it didn't really grab me. I'll give them another go. 

I definitely more of a fan of Ty's other projects and solo stuff than Dug's.

I am a fan. I have seen them a few times --- foe Out of the Silent Planet, Gretchen. And Tapehead. Liked their last two albums, which had harder sound to them. Looking forward to the new album. Doubt they will be playing anywhere close to where I live, but would like to see them live. Impressive that Dug is still going strong at age 71.

KXM didn't grab me with their first one. But then I sampled some songs from the second that were much closer to the King's X sound. George's solos are his best since his Dokken heyday.

A good band ! I've got a best-of of King's X and a CD by Ty Tabor.
But I don't think they are one of the best bands in the hard-rock/heavy-metal history (only one album is mentioned in the anthologies of this style of music).

I realize art is totally subjective and we all have views that may offend others.  I was too emotional at the time of that post.  I don't really dislike pop bands, I just find them to be irrelevant to my life.  Others may worship them like they are gods. To each his own.

Er, okay? Planet X and King's X are poles apart. Are we going to compare Pink Floyd and Return to Forever next?
