The band Lynch Mob, founded by Dokken guitarist George
Lynch, was essentially an off-shoot of Dokken in the late 1980's after
dissention in the band. George managed to score Dokken drummer
Mick Brown, and the band released
Wicked Sensation in 1990, an album that reached Gold status.
You may remember the songs "Wicked Sensation", "River of Love", and
"She's Evil but She's Mine" from this album.
Shortly after the initial release, vocalist Oni Logan was
fired from the band due to his excessive rock lifestyle, and they
self-titled follow up
album in 1992 after hiring a new vocalist. You may remember the
songs "Tangled in the Web" and the Queen cover of "Tie Your Mother
Down". Lynch Mob temporarily disbanded in 1995 as George Lynch and
Mick Brown reunited with Dokken. Lynch was let go from Dokken in
1998, so naturally he resurrected Lynch Mob, but with new members.
Wrap metal fans would be happy to know that the Lynch Mob's 1999
release, Smoke This, has been called "Lynch Bizkit". Since
then, Lynch Mob has broken up and reunited several more times.
In 2008, Lynch had the opportunity to join back up with
Dokken for Rocklahoma, but he chose to bring back the vocalist from the
Wicked Sensation album, essentially losing a chance for
reconciliation with Don Dokken. Fans of Dokken may be interested
Revolution (2003) which is a collection of some of
Lynch's old Dokken stuff, but with a heavier sound.
At the time of this writing, new material was in the
works for Lynch Mob with all original members. The Lynch Mob
