Does anyone know Lynch Mob, the band formed by George Lynch after he left Dokken ?

I had their second album and it was epic. It deserved to be huge but it came out a few years too late as grunge was on the rise. Check this riff for a master class on how to use the diminished 5th. As for the solo... no words needed !



From the same album:





P.S. If you can't be bothered to listen to all the tracks just check out When Darkness Calls from 2:50 onwards !! cool.gif

Love em! I had tickets to see them in Wilmington, North Carolina in 1991 but,alas, it was not meant to be. If I remember right (without Googling biggrin.gif ) Wicked Sensation was their first cassette. (GREAT solo on "Cold is the Heart"!). I also had the second (the one at the bottom of your post) and also bought Sacred Groove in 1994. Lynch had a bunch of different vocalists on Sacred Groove, but the song Tierra Del Fuego (no vocals on that one) was my favorite.

Edit: I don't remember if "Cold is the Heart" is on the first or second. Got me wondering now! ohmy.gif

Cold is the Heart was on the second.. I can't find a version of it on Youtube which is a shame because it's an epic tune ! smile.gif

I love Lynch Mob! I saw them on the Wicked Sensation tour and George Lynch was AMAZING. Very underrated band. But then again, anything with a guitar in it is practically underground music on our charts here. We are buried under Beiber and Gaga. But that's what I love about Rock/Metal in general. It lives on through the fans, despite being ignored by public. It got pretty awful when it was embraced in the 80s and it got watered down to a sick degree. Some folks might think lynch mob is on the "Pop Metal" end of things but I don't seem them that way. It strikes me as honest Rock and Roll with metal roots.

I really dug this tune from them. It's got a wad of groove in it.

I preferred Wicked Sensation to the 2nd album, not sure why, maybe it was the change in vocalist or the cover of Tie your mother down that made me like it less.
