"There were many reasons why this solo album was a must. It was decisive that I got the music within myself, and that I could express it exactly in the way I felt it. In the context of a band there always are other people involved who have to be familiar with the song material in the same way as the composer, so there are always little compromises necessary. Furthermore, I want to keep pace with Doug and Ty, and I wanna be the sole ruler in the universe, well, here the artist seems to express himself."It’s true that the latter part of Gaskill’s statement was said with an obvious winking and for that one cannot take it too seriously. However, it can’t be denied that in the past the 46 year old drummer from Bridgeton, New Jersey, was a little the shadow of both frontmen, and that he also shares the destiny of all musicians in the so-called „2nd row.“ So it’s really understandable that Gaskill now wants to show all others what he is made of. And in fact there are a lot of things to discover because this man is just not „only“ the drummer of King’s X. No: he also cuts a good figure as guitarist, piano player, singer, and much more so as songwriter.
