Lynch Mob: Rebel
With three spells as a member of Dokken, though principally via a platinum-encrusted stint lasting from1980–89, George Lynch has attained immortality in the world of melodic hard rock. A still-toxic relationship with vocalist Don Dokken scuppers a return to that band, but the guitarist has made some excellent music with his own fortuitously named group, most of it in the company of vocalist Oni Logan. Nobody fits Lynch Mob like co-founder Logan, who returned after almost two decades away for 2009’s Smoke And Mirrors album.
