_______________________________

01 – Back on September 28th, 1954, the legendary George Lynch was born! Happy Metal Birthday, George Lynch! This amazing guitarist was instrumental in Dokken’s skyrocketing to the top during the 80’s, with his legendary signature guitar tones and screaming solos, George Lynch gave this band an identity that has proved to be irreplaceable. During his post-Dokken years, George Lynch has worked tirelessly on a boastful Heavy Music career with his bands Lynch Mob, Souls Of We, T & N and most currently KXM.

As reported on The Official AC/DC Site:

02 – 23 years ago on September 28th 1991, AC/DC headlined a “Monsters Of Rock” festival at Tushino Airfield in Moscow, Russia. The show unofficially became part of the “Monsters Of Rock” European tour that was taking place since the later part of August.

Just one month earlier, there was a failed coup consisting of members of the Soviet Union’s government attempt to take control from the Soviet President. The concert was assembled to take place in Moscow’s Tushino Airfield as a thank you from the Russian government, offering free admission to concert attendees. AC/DC were invited to perform just three days prior to the concert date.

The crowd in attendance is one of the largest in concert history, and certainly the largest in “Monsters Of Rock” festival history, at an incredible estimated 1.6 million. Other bands that performed that day include Metallica, The Black Crowes, Pantera, and E.S.T..

03On a much more enormously somber note: 

As reported by the Ottawa Star:

On this day in 2012, the owner of the site of the 2003 Warwick R.I., nightclub fire (sparked by “Great White’s” pyrotechnics that killed 100 people) donated the land for a permanent memorial.

A new musical force to be reckoned with is about to turn the rock world upside down with the release of their self-titled debut, KXM. KXM is comprised of dUg Pinnick of King’s X on vocals/bass, George Lynch of Lynch Mob/Dokken on guitars and Korn’s drum maestro, Ray Luzier, rounds out the powerhouse trio. The band takes its name from the combination of the member’s other projects: K from Korn, X from King’s X and M from Lynch Mob.

The self-titled debut of KXM is something truly unique and special. The songs are powerful, precise, and transcend beyond the boundaries of the imagination.  In today’s overpopulated music arena, true gems become harder and harder to find, but KXM’s unified vision rises above the normal and creates its own space. From the opening drum riff of “Stars” to the final chord on “Human Friction,” KXM is an album that is sure to resonate with fans from the band’s original projects, while garnering new ones as well. Songs like “Gun Fight,” “Faith Is A Room” and the first single “Rescue Me” are sure to be instant favorites among fans. The band shows their softer side on the ballad “Never Stop” along with their dark side on the tale of domestic violence, “Sleep.”

KXM formed in early 2013 when dUg, George and Ray spoke about trying to jam together. At the time it wasn’t clear what would come from those jams. The only thing that was clear was that these 3 musicians, at the top of their game, wanted to play together. The self-titled debut, KXM, was born from those jam sessions and is now an important piece in each band member’s musical legacy. In a world that constantly searches for new and unique music, KXM delivers all the power and punch that one would expect from these high level players!  Official release date is set for March 11, 2014

As reported by Rat Pak Records:

[KXM UPDATE- 1/3/2014] The new super-group “KXM” featuring Ray Luzier of Korn, Doug Pinnick of Kings X and George Lynch are heading into the studio this weekend to put a few final touches on their upcoming debut release. We’ve obviously heard the tracks so here is an accurate description of what you can expect. The songs are truly amazing. Ray’s drumming sounds like 3 dimensional thunder, George’s guitar playing will leave you to wonder if he’s really playing through an amp or if he’s directly plugged into some kind universal energy that only the guitar gods have access to..…then add in Doug Pinnick who brings his rock solid bass grooves, intelligible lyrics and seasoned songwriting talents to the table…..no hype and no joke, KXM is the real deal and you are going to love this album! We will announce official release date sometime later this month. In the meantime, add the KXM official page https://www.facebook.com/KXMofficial

LYNCH MOB – 1992 S/T Album Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Lynch Mob - 1992 - promo cover pic

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metal Fists 5 Metal Odyssey

LYNCH MOB – I never owned this Lynch Mob classic, until 2 weeks ago. I went to Omega Records in downtown Dayton, Ohio and found this Lynch Mob gem sitting in the used section of “Metal” for just $2.99 (U.S.). Whoa!! No brainer time! I grabbed this self-titled Lynch Mob CD in 1 micro-second and the rest is history, baby! The CD, jewel case and liner notes are in pristine condition too! Whoa again!

Best Metal Buddy, Scott Coverdale, had texted me (back when I first moved to the Dayton area) that there was an Omega Records close by. It’s quite the indie record store and I’ll write all about it in a future post. For now, this post is dedicated to the S/T Lynch Mob album from 1992 and it’s:

Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

This sophomore album from Lynch Mob is so damn good, it’s scary. Seriously. I could NOT give this Lynch Mob classic anything less than 5 Metal fists! The guitar master and legendary George Lynch is incredible on this album (as always) and vocalist Robert Mason is freaking smokin’!! I’d go as far to say this Lynch Mob album is better than their 1990 debut: Wicked Sensation.

I absolutely love Wicked Sensation too; I especially admire the vocals of Oni Logan. However, Lynch Mob is so pumped up with psyched-out energy and Hard Rock bliss that I’ll place this album in my top 20 Hard Rock albums of all-time and not blink an eye!! Metal be thy name!! The loyal (and talented) Mick Brown is on drums and Anthony Esposito is the bassist. What a lineup this version of Lynch Mob was!

I honestly never think of fast forwarding, at any moment, when this CD is cranking into my brain. No way. The kick-ass bonus about this album is Lynch Mob performs a whiz-bang cover of Tie Your Mother Down from the ultra-iconic Queen. This Lynch Mob cover kicks absolute, 100%, mega-potent ass!! My unequivocal Metal recommendation, to ALL my Metal and Hard Rock brethren is: find this CD and buy it!! If you already own it, then… you Rock!!

George Lynch Launches Fundraising Campaign For Documentary Film – “Shadow Train: Under A Crooked Sky”

Posted in documentary films, Hard Rock, heavy metal news, movies, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , on March 15, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

George Lynch - Shadow Train - promo pic - #1 - 2013

Rock legend George Lynch (Dokken, Lynch Mob) and Emmy-nominated documentary filmmaker Mark Mclaughlin are currently working together on Shadowtrain: Under a Crooked Sky, a stirring documentary that explores a hybrid way of life merging modern society with the ancient practices of people who have lived in harmony with the land for thousands of years; native American Indians.

The film follows Lynch and drummer/activist/artist Vincent Nicastro as they visit different reservations around the American Southwest with a trailer full of gear and group of musicians to get a firsthand look at effects of modern consumerism on our native population and the steps they’re taking towards sustainability.

While the documentary is nearly complete, the filmmakers are now seeking help in seeing their collective vision come to fruition. In order to see “Shadowtrain” become a reality, Lynch and Mclaughlin have launched an IndieGoGo Flexible Funding campaign where contributions can be made towards the completion of the film in exchange for autographed copies of George Lynch’s most recent release Legacy, guitar lessons, a signed guitar and more. To donate to the making of “Shadowtrain: Under a Crooked Sky” visit the following link below:

A trailer for the film, featuring Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine. The Nightwatchman) and Serj Tankian (System Of A Down), can be seen below:

When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty…

Shadow Train - Under A Crooked Sky - large logo

“Shadowtrain: Under a Crooked Sky” will illuminate the cost of the destruction of the Native American community; to both the indigenous population as well as to their European conquerors. The documentary will reveal the qualities inherent in indigenous people’s world views that should be recognized and adopted if we all, collectively, intend to not only survive, but to find a way to live happier, more meaningful lives. While engaging a wide variety of opinions from notable activists, authors, artists, elders and shaman, politicians and government officials, clergy, teachers and everyday people, the film will reveal its message through a powerful music-driven road trip.

The journey begins as renowned guitarist George Lynch (Dokken, Lynch Mob), drummer, artist and activist Vinnie Nicastro and a musical band of politically engaged musicians climb into an old station wagon in the southwest desert. They pull a vintage horse trailer, retro-fitted to carry band equipment, solar panels, generators and camping gear.

They travel the back roads, searching for a truth that can speak to power. They visit the Apache, Navajo and Hopi reservations in Arizona, Zuni and Tewa in New Mexico, Shoshone in Nevada, Utes in Utah and Colorado and then on to the Dakotas to visit the people and places that were (and still are) the epicenter of conflict between the native peoples and their European conquerors.

The people they visit on the reservations will share how they have created sensible environmentally sustainable solutions that work in today’s world. Simple and proven practices like passive solar water heaters on the Paiute reservation, active community gardens and other ideas will be explored. Then as Shadowtrain moves on to other reservations, they will help to integrate these workable procedures, pick up more ideas and carry them further.
