Dug Pinnick

Perhaps the rock ‘n’ roll gods will one day reveal why King’s X was denied the commercial successes of Metallica, Rush, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and Def Leppard. Bandleader, bassist, composer, singer, recording artist Dug Pinnick reflects the magic of Sly Stone, Led Zeppelin, and Jimi Hendrix into his inimitable artistry. Pinnick's penchant for penning catchy melodies with deep, self-exploratory lyrics rendered with a soulful elegance distinguishes him from his peers within the metal milieu.
