KXM are a supergroup with no boss, no limits and no fights. Can it last?

Members of Dokken, a King's X and a Korn unite to form a supergroup with a difference

“Where are you calling from?” George Lynch asks casually. “London? Oh, I’m in Hawaii…”

As far as light-hearted wind-ups go, it’s a good one. It’s certainly at odds with the guitarist’s reputation for fractiousness – his former band Dokken were defined by Lynch’s volatile relationship with their singer Don Dokken.

Perhaps present company has mellowed him. As one third of KXM alongside dUg Pinnick of King’s X and Korn drummer Ray Luzier, Lynch has stepped away from both the tensions of the past and the MTV‑era anthems he’s best known for. Instead, KXM’s second album, Scatterbrain, is a taut slice of progressive-leaning modern rock.
