Memorable in his 80s heyday for his work with Dokken, using guitars that looked like they were made from the bones of strangers, and his inability to play while wearing a top, George Lynch typified everything that was right and wrong about that decade’s rock stars; an overblown talent with a swagger to match.
Kill All Control
Lynch offers more songs and less gonzo solos.
His playing is flawless, though for Kill All Control he’s very nearly taken a back seat to the songs.
Admittedly, Son Of Scary, which harks back to Dokken’s Mr Scary, is as understated as a Gene Simmons’ sales pitch, but in songs like the charged Sun or the considered Brand New Day, Lynch resists the urge to overkill.
