LEGACY review from Guitar International

GL_Legacy Cover_650

By: Robert Cavuoto

George Lynch, the charismatic lead guitarist for Dokken, Lynch Mob, and Souls of We, has just released his new four song solo EP, Legacy, celebrating his thirty years of guitar playing.  It’s a fiery instrumental EP full of hard rock riffs and tremendous leads with a blues edge.

Legacy injects us with a supercharged dose of George’s signature style and proves, once again, why he’s one of the most respected guitar players of the last three decades!  George is joined by Rev Jones on bass and Michael Frowen on drums for Legacy.

LEGACY review from rockmusicstar.com

GL_Legacy Cover_650

By Thomas S. Orwat, Jr.

Ex-Dokken guitarist, George Lynch proves that he is still one of the most gifted musicians on the planet with this all instrumental, four track EP. While he has struggled to find his true identity outside of Dokken, with a few hit, and mostly miss releases outside of the aforementioned band, this EP is a “full on, shred-fest” and perhaps Mr. Lynch’s most extraordinary work yet.

Leonard Peltier – One Man´s Freedom Means Freedom for us All

Leonard Peltier is an Amnesty International registered prisoner of consciousness and Lakota / Anishinabe Native American held by the US government in custody for 37 years on falsified evidence. Leonard has consistently spoken out in defense of his people´s liberty and their denial of basic human rights.

Leonard did the one thing that any of us might have done in the circumstances.He defended his family and led his people to safety at a time when the FBI were making war “Reign of Terror” in the mid-70´s on the native American population. Over 400 people were killed or assaulted and many imprisoned. Leonard was accused of shooting two FBI agents2. Ballistics evidence proves beyond doubt that Leonard is an innocent victim. Two other men were declared innocent in court but Leonard was not then present – the FBI needed a scapegoat as the case remains unsolved.

We want Freedom loving people, tribal elders and native peoples worldwide to send a message now to President Obama – It is time to Grant Clemency to Leonard Peltier, to give freedom to this man that he may spend his remaining days with his family and loved ones.

Vote for Lynch in Guitar World’s greatest guitarist of all time tournament!

http://www.guitarworld.com/poll-greatest-guitarist-all-time-round-1-zakk-wylde-vs-george-lynch

Welcome to our first-ever Greatest Guitarist poll, where 128 guitarists go head to head, round by round, in a bracketed format, in the style of NCAA basketball’s March Madness tournament.

We filled 124 of 128 slots with the names of a host of incredible guitarists (dead and living) — players chosen for their technical ability as well as their importance and creativity, not to mention how influential they’ve been. We asked you to vote in the final four names, which you did. Now the 128 slots are filled, and we’re ready to go.

We know there are going to be some weird style matchups in this poll, which may lead many of you to ask questions like, “How do you compare a shred guitarist to a blues guitarist?” Aside from how good a player is at their given style, here are some things to take into consideration:

• Influence: Who inspired more kids to beg their parents for a guitar for Christmas? Who inspired a wave of copycats?
• Chops/Versatility: Is the guitarist in question a one-trick pony or a master of many styles?
• Body of Work: Who had the more consistent career? Who has played on more classic albums?
• Creativity: Who pioneered new techniques? Who sounds the most radically different from what came before them?

Round 1 — Today’s Match

Zakk Wylde emerged in the late ’80s as Jake E. Lee’s replacement in Ozzy Osbourne’s solo band, eventually having the longest tenure of any Ozzy guitarist. His signature brand of pinch harmonics and lethal guitar solos made him an instant hit among guitar lovers everywhere. When not shredding for the Ozzman, Zakk showed us his Southern rock roots in Pride & Glory before founding Black Label Society in 1998 and going on to release modern classics like 1919 Eternaland The Blessed Hellride.

Taking on Wylde is George Lynch, who shares a thread with Zakk in that he auditioned twice for Ozzy Osbourne’s solo band, only losing out to Randy Rhoads. Lynch would gain notoriety for his inventive lead guitar style with Dokken, playing on classic records like Under Lock And Key andBack For The Attack. During a temporary split with Dokken in 1989, Lynch formed the aptly named Lynch Mob, which charted with two albums, Wicked Sensation and Lynch Mob, in the early ’90s.

Yesterday’s matchup saw Tom Morello (52.44%) defeat Robert Fripp (47.56%).
