Lynch Mob are an American band featuring former Dokken guitarist George Lynch, who has been the band's only permanent member. The rest of the band have been a revolving door of members who have come and gone, and in some cases, come back. The first Lynch Mob album was released in 1990 and titled Wicked Sensation.

The album featured vocalist Oni Logan who was fired shortly after touring due to unknown reasons, although there were also rumors that he had quit the band while touring in support of Queensryche, because he felt intimidated opening up for singer Geoff Tate. Many feel that songs such as the title track (the album's lone single), "River of Love," "She's So Evil," and "For a Million Years" would have done very well in the 80's "hair metal" scene. However, due to the explosion of grunge and the waning popularity of "hair metal," the album didn't make much of an impact and sold rather poorly.

The next album was the self-titled Lynch Mob (released in 1992), which fared even worse upon its release. The album sported many great rock anthems such as "Tangled in the Web" and a cover of Queen's "Tie your Mother Down." It featured the vocals of new vocalist Robert Mason (who was asked to join Ratt as a replacement for Stephen Pearcy, but passed, giving way to Jizzy Pearl, who has since left Ratt). Lynch Mob disbanded after the tour for the album. In 1995, Lynch and drummer Mick Brown would reunite with Dokken.

In 1998, Lynch was let go from Dokken. Consecutively, Lynch attempted to reform the original Lynch Mob line-up. Sadly the band broke-up again after a single writing session. The fruits of this session was a three song demo which ended being released as SyGyZY.

Lynch then formed the third incarnation of the group, taking the music into a rap-metal direction, though the sound was entirely distinct from rapcore bands such as Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park. In 1999, Smoke This was released to disappointed fans and critics. A tour followed the album and the band disbanded again.

In 2003, Robert Mason, original bassist Anthony Esposito, and Lynch reformed to record modernized Lynch Mob and Dokken material. Mick Brown stayed with Dokken and Michael Frowein was hired as the a drummer. The new recordings on the album titled REvolution were heavier and faster than the original, and were well received by the Lynch Mob fans. Frowein was replaced by Chas Stumbo (Earshot) for the 2003 REvolution Tour. A Live CD/DVD package of the final show of that tour was later released. While the documented show ended up being the last ever Lynch Mob Show, the audio was from a different performance and often does not match the images.

Lynch has sporadically recorded under the Lynch Mob name and has toured with the band in the past. In 2007, George and his band performed a marathon 26 show/30 day tour, which included a much talked about feature on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. The line-up was: George Lynch - Guitars, Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath/Dio) - Drums, Marten Andersson (Lizzy Borden/Starwood/Legacy) - Bass, Andrew Freeman - Vocals (The Offspring). Some of these same members have apparently also toured under the name 'Lynch' as recently as 2007.

Currently, George Lynch seems to be focused on his 'Guitar Dojo' lessons. He has toured Europe in 2006 but only under his own name and not the Lynch Mob. The popular lineup of Dokken was set to reunite to play Rocklahoma 2008 in Pryor, Ok and tour during the summer however those plans fell apart. George used this chance to reunite Lynch Mob (with vocalist Oni Logan) to play at Rocklahoma 2008. Also, there is a new Lynch Mob album in the works for 2009!

I interviewed George back in March for my radio show. Wow, has it been that long? I might have to schedule something soon, since the new Lynch Mob record is almost out. The focus of the interview was Souls of We, though we touched on Lynch Mob and Dokken.

Text of my interview with George Lynch can be read here, or just watch these videos:

Hey Jeanette, I know what you mean about not all of his solo endeavors being that great. I've been listening to the new Lynch Mob album due in the fall, and I think if you like the first two Lynch Mob discs, you'll like this one! Great to see him back in form playing-wise and with Oni Logan on vox again. :-)

George is from my neck of the woods here in Spokane, Wa. He is amazing on the guitar.
