Legendary guitarist George Lynch (DOKKEN, LYNCH MOB) has issued the following update on his recent and upcoming activities:
"You might have seen the e-mail I recently sent out sort of updating everyone as to what's been going on over the past couple months and what may be coming up in the future. It's sometimes difficult to bring speculative issues up because 9 times out of ten these things don't pan out. Case in point, a couple of months ago there was a good chance DOKKEN would reform. VH1 was going to sponsor the tour, Warner was looking at possibly signing the band and releasing a new album and re-releasing the catalog, a major talent agency booking a very high-profile tour, our own VH1 special, etc. We were all very excited get an opportunity to do this but for internal reasons it didn't work for everyone and after a lot of ideas, meetings and hard work it came to nothing in the end. We were very disappointed but it may happen down the road when the time is right.
"I wanted to thank the people on out team that our down in the trenches with me chipping away at the stone.
"I'm glad to say, I have wonderful management team in Novi Entertainment, Paul Spriggs and Kevin Lee. Also Nancy Sayles has done a great job as my publicist over the last year."
As previously reported, Lynch will be going out on the road in June with John Sykes (THIN LIZZY, WHITESNAKE). Exact cities and dates will be announced soon.
George has been writing and recording at his studio in California along with longtime friend Mike Frowin and engineer Mike Tacci. A new all-original album should be ready by this summer.
