Lynch Mob

Biography

Still known to most as the original lead guitarist in '80s metal band Dokken, George Lynch (a.k.a. "Mr. Scary") struck out on his own at the top of the '90s with his own band, the Lynch Mob. This proved only one thing: that Dokken's magic laid with the synergy of Lynch's fleet-fingered fury, and singer Don Dokken's soaring vocal. The Lynch Mob limped their way through a few albums and then, for a while, nothing. Lynch still appeared in ads for guitar clinics and his signature "Screamin' Demon" guitar pickups. A "where are they now" serial found Lynch keeping a low profile in Arizona, transforming himself into a professional bodybuilder. Funny thing about the phoenix -- you can't keep it down for long. So here is the latest incarnation of the Lynch Mob, with a redirected emphasis on powered grooves and a new lead singer who doesn't even try to capture Don Dokken's leather-lunged emoting; instead, singer Kirk Harper takes his cues from Rap Metal vocalists like Rage Against the Machine's Zack de la Rocha and Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst. Lynch can be found, still widdling away, a little deeper in the mix.
