When George Lynch started digging into the writing process for his latest solo album Kill All Control, the intent was to write a new Souls of We album however, what would follow is a solo album with contributions from four different lead vocalists and a bevy of guest appearances.  On vocals the album offers up tracks with London LeGrand (Souls of We), Will Marten (Earshot), Marc Torien ( Bulletboys), and Keith St. John ( Montrose) – why pick one lead singer when you can showcase four of the best!

Kill All Control also features “Son of Scary”, a song that follows up one of Lynch’s most beloved instrumental tracks written during his time in Dokken, “Mr. Scary”.   “Son of Scary” also has a guest appearance on it, Cinderella drummer Fred Coury offers up his skin-bashing for the recording.

With a new solo album, a new Lynch Mob album in the works and a Lynch Mob tour on tap, you’d think that George would be short on free time, but somehow he’s managed to launch his own custom guitar company called ” Mr. Scary Guitars” selling custom, hand carved, guitars he creates – each one like a piece of art.

We recently had the opportunity to catch up with George to talk about the new solo album, Lynch Mob, his career and his new guitar company.

George Lynch of Souls of We

sowbandMeet Souls of We, the latest brainchild from guitar great George Lynch. When George Lynch puts together a band, he takes the time to get it right. It took him five years to put the final pieces together on his latest project, but the result, Let the Truth be Known, is a modern rock album that combines the musical genuis of Lynch with London Legrand’s (Brides of Destruction) unique lyric stylings.

The two hit it off immediately when they met years ago but unfortunately other commitments kept them from working together at the time. Both going their separate ways they met up again a few years later and the timing fell into place. They headed into Lynch’s studio and the rest is history. Rounding out the band is Johny Chow (Systematic, Fireball Ministry) on bass and Yael (Tom Morello, Alex Skolnick) on drums. The album also boasts a bevy of guest appearances including an all star list of drummers including Morgan Rose of Sevendust and Mike Wengren of Disturbed.

George recently dialed in to TWRY to talk to us about the making of the album, how the band fell into place and his thoughts on music and guitar icons through the years.
