Guitarist George Lynch has reteamed with his former Dokken bandmate Jeff Pilson for a new studio album, covering classic pop songs into metal anthems.
‘Heavy Hitters’ covers are by bands such as Duran Duran, One Republic, Carol King, Oasis, Kiss, Prince.
George discussed the “Heavy Hitters” project in a recent interview with Audio Ink Radio, saying:
“I’ve got another project I did with Jeff Pilson called ‘Heavy Hitters’, which is really interesting. It’s two songs from [each of] the last five decades that we re-interpreted and reimagined, again, and had a lot of fun with.
”So we have everything on there from Little Richard to Madonna to Timbaland to Duran Duran— just all kinds of different music that we had fun with. And so there may be a series of those records. We just finished the first volume, and we may be doing a series of those.”
