Douglas Theodore Pinnick is also known as dUg Pinnick or simply dUg. He is an American musician best known as the bass guitarist, songwriter, and co-lead vocalist for the hard rock and progressive metal band King's X.
KXM members George Lynch (Dokken, Lynch Mob) and Dug Pinnick (King's X) join Eddie Trunk in person and discuss the band's new album, 'Circle of Dolls.' They discuss why they haven't played live yet, how they stay fit, the ugly side of the music business and more! Plus, the band's drummer Ray Luzier (Korn) rings in and makes a cameo appearance!
Steve Cooper talks with musician dUg Pinnick. dUg is an American musician best known as the bass guitarist, songwriter, and co-lead vocalist for the band King's X. He has fifteen albums with King's X, four solo albums, and numerous side projects and guest appearances to his credit. He is known for his gospel-like voice and his heavily distorted bass tone, played through multiple Ampeg SVT-4 amplifiers. In March, 2014 his side project Grinder Blues with the Emmy Award-winning Bihlman Brothers signed a deal with Megaforce Records and are scheduled to release their debut record in July 2014. He also recently released a CD with the supergroup kXm that also includes George Lynch and Korn's Ray Luzier and he still stays busy touring and recording with King's X.
Today is another one of those treats and perks I get from doing this show. I just spoke with dUg Pinnick from the supergroup KXM which also features George Lynch of Dokken and Lynch Mob, and Ray Luzier of Korn. Their self-titled debut, which you can get March 11 (at various places, including Amazon where the pre-order is the #1 Hard Rock album), is incredible. dUg's vocals combined with the trio's instrument work is great record. I do hope they are able to tour behind it soon! I chat with dUg about how this project came together (it involves cake!), all of the various projects he's a part of and how he keeps his enthusiasm going for everything, how he comes across talented new bands, and dUg shares that first record he fell in love with. You can follow KXM on Twitter @KXMofficial and like them on Facebook at Facebook.com/KXMofficial! And you can get the record March 11!
