With only 11 days left until the Jackyl show I thought I would do a count down of sorts to get everyone ready to rock with the band on July 2nd.With that in mind I thought I'd start out by defining exactly what a jackyl (jackal) is for those of you who do not know.

The American Heritage online dictionary defines a jackal as

1. A "doglike mammal from Africa and southern Asia they are mainly foragers feeding on plants, small animals, and occasionally carrion"

2. An accomplice or a lackey who aids in the commission of base or disreputable acts.

3. One who performs menial tasks for another.

Which of these do you think they band was thinking of when they decided to go with the name "Jackyl?"

Check out the video for "Push Comes To Shove" while you think about it then let me know what you think.
