Songfacts – George Lynch

Greg Prato has interviewed former Dokken and current Lynch Mob guitarist George Lynch.

Here is an excerpt:

The mid to late ’80s featured countless “guitar heroes” within the realm of heavy metal. And one gentleman that seemed to balance shredding solos with songwriting was George Lynch – as evidenced by his work in Dokken, one of MTV’s go-to rock bands of the era. After the band initially split in 1989, Lynch launched his own project, Lynch Mob (not to be confused with Ice Cube’s group Da Lench Mob), and ever since, has been spotted in on-again/off-again Dokken reunions, as well as new Lynch Mob releases – as evidenced by the latter’s eighth studio release in 2015, Rebel.

And Lynch doesn’t set his sights solely on music, as he recently co-created a film titled Shadow Nation, which is described as “A hybrid way of life merging modern society with the ancient practices of people who have lived in harmony with the land for thousands of years; native American Indians.”

Lynch called in to Songfacts shortly before the arrival of Rebel, and was up for chatting about some of the vocalists he has worked with over the years, songwriting, and the stories behind several Dokken rockers.
