ABOUT LYNCH MOB
LYNCH MOB was formed by George Lynch, one of the few genuine guitar heroes of substance to emerge from the Los Angeles scene, after DOKKEN split up in 1989. The band’s first album, “Wicked Sensation”, went on to sell over 500,000 units in the U.S. and featured the talents of singer Oni Logan, Anthony Esposito on bass and another former DOKKEN member Mick Brown on drums. After a tour in support of QUEENSRŸCHE, Logan opted out, with Robert Mason taking his place on the follow-up self-titled release. However, Lynch and Brown eventually returned to DOKKEN, releasing two studio albums until he left again in late 1997 putting together a several new incarnations of LYNCH MOB and exploring new sounds with different projects.
However, Oni Logan and George Lynch would found themselves again in a studio in the summer of 2007. “We weren’t sure what was going to happen,” recalls George, “but as soon as I heard what Oni was coming up with just off the top of his head, I knew the old chemistry was still there. So we spent many months writing. The first batch of songs had almost a southern rock feel to them and there was quite a bit of acoustic and slide work on those. They also had a genuine ’70s vibe. These first songs had elements reminiscent of FLEETWOOD MAC, ZEPPELIN, BLACK CROWES, STONES and it was all very bluesy. We lived with those songs for a while then went in and did a second round of collaboration. We had tightened up as a band after touring over the summer and we consciously wrote the newer material with the ‘Wicked Sensation’ record in mind. So we updated the earlier songs a little and wrote a few more ‘adventurous’ track and went in to start recording.”
Joining the new lineup are bassist Marco Mendoza (WHITESNAKE, THIN LIZZY) and drummer Scot Coogan (BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION, ACE FREHLEY). More than a band, this team is guaranteed to create one of the most explosive shows you can ever experience and shines big time on the brand new recording which is set to bring back LYNCH MOB on the map of the most exciting hard rock bands around! “Marco Mendoza is literally a gift from Heaven,” continues Lynch. “How they figured out how to stuff all that talent and goodness into one person I’ll never know. they must have made a mistake at the factory! [Laughs] … then there’s Scot Coogan on drums…. baby of the band… he’s very solid, very ‘Bonham-esque’… not sure if that’s a real word!”
LYNCH MOB is ready to embark on a world tour in the fall 2009 to follow up the successful performance at Rocklahoma 2008 and to promote “Smoke and Mirrors”.
“We have been expecting to go out in a support situation with a bigger act in the fall of 2009 to coincide with the release of ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ and were also expecting to visit Europe as well,” says George Lynch. “It’s been way too long since I’ve played Europe and we need to tour there extensively… last time LYNCH MOB toured Europe was with QUEENSRŸCHE… and I think that was 1991!”
