As you may or may not have heard, the Canadian garage rock duo The King Khan & BBQ Show was recently busted for possession of hallucinogenic mushrooms in backwoods Kentucky. Oops. One of my buddies is a guitar player who self-recorded a handful of albums as a hobby. King Khan's arrest reminded me of one of his tracks. The below track is an electric guitar instrumental that is reminiscent of early Metallica. Mr. Ridley is a recovering metalhead residing in Kitchener, Ontario, who lists his biggest influences as early Black Sabbath and pre-Bruce Dickinson Iron Maiden.

If you ask me nicely, I may be able to set you up with this album!
The King Khan & BBQ Show has a new album out. Now that they are out of clink, they are resuming their tour tonight in Los Angeles.
