GRINDER BLUES are a hard rock blues trio featuring dUg Pinnick (King’s X) on bass and vocals, guitarist and vocalist Jabo Bihlman, and Scot “Little” Bihlman on drums, percussion, and vocals. They offer a high-energy, bone-crushing sound and from-the-gut songwriting, putting a fresh, contemporary spin on the blues tradition.
“The idea for the music was to stay away from the clichés and rock out,” dUg explains. “If we felt like we were heading into any songs that seemed like standard blues lyrically or musically, we made it a point to veer in the opposite direction.”
I had the chance to set down and talk to Doug (dUg) about this great new blues-rock album, the upcoming King X’s album, and Doug’s new solo album, as well as discuss the world today, both musically and life in general. Check out the XS ROCK Interview with Doug Below:
