Yesterday, while browsing YouTube, I found the video of “King,” by the Houston band King’s X. It appears on Out of the Silent Planet (1988). I don’t recall how or where I first heard it, but when I did, about two years ago,┬áit floored me. The guitar is clean, innovative, and powerful. I knew immediately that I was in the presence of musical genius. Why this band hasn’t made it big is beyond me.
