KXM - Album Review

It was at a birthday party for the son of Ray Luzier (drummer of the band Korn) that George Lynch (Dokken, Lynch Mob) and dUg Pinnick (King's X) got the tour of Ray's home recording studio. And it was in that studio that Ray suggested that the 3 get together as a classic power trio.

Fortunately, George and dUg agreed, and KXM was born.

KXM: "Gunfight"

My buddy Mike Froedge mentioned in passing one day that I should listen to KXM, so I filed in the back of my mind that I'd get around to it at first opportunity. Then I heard it was George Lynch's new band and thought I best make time! Turns out KXM is not only Lynch, but Ray Luzier (drummer for Korn) and dUg Pinnick (bass/vocals for King's X).

Note to self: When Froedge says listen, do it.

GUITAR GODS: Kelly Richey (the lost interview)

Among our lost interviews is this 2009 interview with the amazing blues guitarist Kelly Richey. The original intro was lost forever, but we found theraw interview, and so present it below un-edited.

Kelly started playing in late 70s when she was 15, and soon was practicing a mind boggling 12 hours a day. She joined the band Stealin' Horses in 1986, which afforded her the opportunity to tour a large part of the US. She left in 1990 to start her own band and relocated to Cincinnati, OH. She released her first solo record in 1996 and since then has released 13 albums, including the instrumental album "Speechless" (2006).

In addition to a grueling recording and performance schedule, Kelly maintains a private teaching studio and is also actively involved in community outreach through a variety of projects.
