LYNCH MOB – The Brotherhood Arrives In NYC
November 14, 2017, a year ago
Guitarist George Lynch (ex-Dokken) and his band Lynch Mob, released a new album, The Brotherhood in September via Rat Pak Records. Joining George for this new album, and tour, are original Mob singer Oni Logan, along with Sean McNabb on bass and Jimmy D’Anda (Bulletboys) on drums. George has been quoted about the album, "We wrote this album as a band and the name of the record reflects what the band is about, and what all my bands have been about since I've been a kid. This is my second family. These are my brothers. You go through a lot together and have a lot of experiences together. And that then becomes a part of the music."
The current setlist includes of course a few Dokken tunes; “When Heaven Comes Down”, “Into The Fire”, “The Hunter”, instrumental “Mr. Scary” and “Tooth And Nail”, to Mob rightful classics “She's Evil But She's Mine”, “River Of Love”, and “Wicked Sensation”. Obviously the fans come to see Lynch do his thing, and equally for these great songs. The Brotherhood’s rustic band photos and video clips for “Main Offender” and “Mr. Jekyll And Hyde” works great for the Mob’s artistic and musical direction. But unfortunately as a fan, not just a journalist, gotta say Lynch’s bluesy guitar tone and ever evolving technique just does not give those Dokken songs the metal edged crunch and punch, or accuracy on the solos that they deserve.
