Biography

California PA, United States (1989 – 1993, 1998 – 1999, 2003 – present)

Lynch Mob is the name of a group that’s the current vehicle for former Dokken guitarist George Lynch, who has been the band’s only permanent member. The bgroupwas formed in California, United States in 1989 shortly after Lynch quit Dokken. The band’s line-up has been a revolving door of members who have come and gone, and in some cases returned. The band’s debut album, featuring vocalist Oni Logan (ex-Cold Sweat), was 1990’s ‘Wicked Sensation’.

That release received praise as great / album from many fans as well as from music critics, with the All Music Guide’s Eduardo Rivadavia stating that many songs “find the band locking on to a powerful groove”. Despite poor sales, many felt that if it had been recorded a few years earlier it would have sold very well and maybe even hit number one.

Still, the group solidered on, and 1992’s self-titled follow up Lynch Mob featured new vocalist Robert Mason in Logan’s place. Yet, in the wake of even poorer sales figures and some critical reviews, the group disbanded in 1993.

Lynch spent the mid- in a reunited Dokken line-up, but by 1998 he had once again quit Dokken and was working on a new version of Lynch Mob. 1999’s Smoke This was poorly received, prompting another split.

In 2003, Lynch, Mason and original bassist Anthony Esposito reformed yet another incarnation of Lynch Mob, this time updating their original sound rather than follow the rap-metal direction of the late 90s iteration of the band.
