Bassist/Singer with King’s X
dUg Pinnick is known first and foremost as the soulful singer and bassist for hard rockers King’s X. A generation of musicians have been inspired by their Beatle-esque harmonies and monster hard rock grooves. dUg’s bass tone is instantly identifiable, and his particular fondness for the 12-String and heavy bass tones are a fundamental component of King’s X’s sound and groove.

dUg has also released several solo recordings, and recently recorded bass and vocal tracks as a guest on Hydrogyn’s upcoming album ‘Judgement’ for a song titled “Big Star”. In January 2010, ex-Megadeth guitarist Jeff Young joined the Ashland, Kentucky based hard-rock/metal group, which now consists of vocalist Julie Westlake, guitarists Jeff Westlake and Jeff Young, Joe Migz on drums, and ex-Megadeth/Black Label Society/White Lion bassist James Lomenzo. dUg said he used the Bass TightDrive on this recording, and recently picked up the Bass TightFuzz, which he likes to use for cleaner tones.
