He is ranked #47 in “100 greatest guitarists of all time” by Guitar World magazine.
With Dokken George Lynch had a string of successful platinum albums such as Under Lock And Key and Back For The Attack that prominently featured Lynch’s inventive lead guitar work and cemented his reputation as a bonafide guitar hero. The instrumental track “Mr. Scary” on Back For The Attack contributed to his popularity among guitar players. The band earned a Grammy nomination for the Best Metal Performance in 1990.
In spite of the band’s popularity, the group parted ways in March 1989 due to internal tensions with lead vocalist Don Dokken. Lynch formed his own hard rock band Lynch Mob which differed from Dokken in lyrical and guitar complexity, subject matter, song structure, and tuning.
