GEORGE LYNCH: Footage Of Anchorage Clinic Available

Legendary guitarist George Lynch (LYNCH MOB, DOKKEN, SOULS OF WE) took part in a clinic on December 3, 2010 at Mammoth Music in Anchorage, Alaska. Video footage of his appearance can be viewed below.

With a career spanning more than thirty years, George has recorded over twenty albums, toured the entire globe many times, and is the one of the most recognizable endorsees of the world's finest guitars and equipment.

Born on September 28, 1954 in Spokane, Washington, George Lynch began learning to play guitar at the age of 10. A naturally gifted musician, his guitar playing quickly progressed and became a creative outlet for him during his teenage years performing with several bands, most notably SERGEANT ROCKS.

In the late 1970s, George moved to Los Angeles, California where he formed two bands, THE BOYZ and XCITER. With XCITER, George's technical abilities and unique style was a very important draw to the band's fan base. Playing the L.A. club circuit, it was clear that he was already taking the necessary steps that would lead him to success in the 1980s and his partnership with legendary band DOKKEN.

In a recent interview with Metal-Rules.com, Lynch stated about the much-rumored DOKKEN reunion plans, "Don [Dokken, vocals] has been making noises, and we've been having meetings, and we've been doing shows together with LYNCH MOB and SOULS OF WE, we did [the] Loud Park [festival] in Japan together and all this stuff, and it's like, and he said, 'Okay, I'm committing to it,' but we never put it on paper, and so my last few conversations with him is that he sounds like he's trying to get me to be a hired gun. And I told him, 'Dude, I told you from the first moment I'll never do that, I'm not a hired-gun guy.' . . . That was always my problem with him — that he was not an honest, trustful person, and I... He never said what he meant, and never did what he said. And that, to me, is a lack of character, and I don't like playing with people with no character. . . It was that, and that was all related to money. So, it's all a bad way to conduct yourself."
