Jeff Pilson states Super Stroke songs remind him of Dokken and Lynch Mob morphed together
Current Foreigner bassist Jeff Pilson was recently interviewed by Mitch Lafon for the Rock Talk with Mitch Lafon podcast and the bassist spoke about the new Super Stroke band that he formed with singer Robert Mason and former Dokken bandmates George Lynch (guitar) and “Wild” Mick Brown (drums).
In terms of Super Stroke, Pilson stated (as transcribed by Blabbermouth with slight edits): “[I’m] very excited about that. Wow, that’s coming out amazing. We have eleven songs written already. Seven of them have vocals, and Robert is sounding like a god. He’s phenomenal. He’s got everything — the range, the tones, the soul. It’s pretty phenomenal. George and I have written eleven pieces of music, so there’s four more to finish up with vocals, but it’s coming out amazing. That should be out in early 2019. Musically, there is a bit of Dokken in there, but I think it reminds me of Dokken and Lynch Mob kind of morphed together a bit, although there is quite a bit of harmony stuff going on. I’m trying to stick that in there too. It’s bluesy rock in the way that Lynch Mob is — groove rock kind of thing, but with some Dokken elements to it. There’s a few moments that get kind of deep and interesting musically — we do make a couple of stretches — but overall, it’s pretty much groove rock, and I think Dokken and Lynch Mob fans are all going to like it.”
