King’s X drummer Jerry Gaskill and his wife are recovering from the devastation wrought by Superstorm Sandy.
Sandy killed more than 70 people, caused $50 billion in damage, and led to the unfortunate cancellation of the New York Deftones show — the true casualty of this crises.
Jerry and Julie live on the coast of New Jersey and lost almost every material possession they have ever owned and are still displaced from their home.
Fans have reached out to show their support, and Jerry is of course overwhelmed.
“Julie and I want to again sincerely thank everyone all over the world for the overwhelming love and support during this devastating time for so many. I believe somehow things will be better than ever, just like when I died.
“I think Julie said it the best. She said, ‘It’s been quite a banner year for us. First you died, then we got married and now we’re homeless.’”
Jerry — if you can get to Weehawken, you’ve got a place to hang, bro. And I make a mean dish called noodles and brown gravy that you’ll just love.
“Because of all your love, we have hope. We thank you now and we will thank you always. I have a feeling that 2013 could just be a good year.”
