Jerry Gaskill, drummer and vocalist for Houston progressive hard rock band King's X, had a heart attack Saturday night, according to a Facebook post by his bandmate DUg Pinnick:

Jerry had a heart attack last night. He was operated on and is in stable condition at the hospital. Were all waiting for more info. I will keep you posted,,

Pinnick posted his message about 2 p.m. Sunday. He and Gaskill met as touring musicians with Petra and started King's X under the name of Sneak Preview when guitarist Ty Tabor came aboard. The trio moved to Houston from Missouri in 1985.

King's X is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its self-titled Atlantic debut this year. The band's "First Church of Rock and Roll" tour was scheduled to start next month and hit Warehouse Live March 29.

Rocks Off will have more information on Gaskill's condition when we know.
