During an appearance on KNAC, classic Dokken guitarist George Lynch has addressed his decision to retire the name of his band Lynch Mob.
When asked, here’s what George said:
“The name itself, of course, has always been problematic, and now it’s inexcusable to keep the name. So, things have just sort of all conspired.
“A lot of different events triangulated to this point where it just makes sense on every single level to just let it go and wrap it up with and nice neat bow with this record, and move on.”
Clarifying whether he is retiring or will create new music, he said:
“This will be the last thing that I will release under the Lynch Mob name. I’m done with it and I’m moving on from it.
“I don’t know what I will call what I do from here forward, but it won’t be Lynch Mob. We’re retiring the name and retiring the project.
“When the pandemic hit, we canceled shows and looks like we won’t be doing anything until sometime in 2021.
“Also, in case you’re wondering, I won’t be calling it something like The George Lynch Experience or something like that. It will be something that encompasses my entire career and stuff that I have done over the years.”
