Lynch Mob Quickly Part With Vains Of Jenna Singer And Reunite With Oni Logan
January 31, 2012
Just last week former Dokken guitarist George Lynch revealed that Vains Of Jenna frontman Jesse Forte would be the new Lynch Mob vocalist. The announcement led to Vains Of Jenna calling it quits by saying that they were ending the band after seven years. However it now appears that Lynch and Oni Logan have put aside their differences to teamed up once agin.
Says Jesse Forte, “I actually wont be working with George on Lynch Mob. He informed me over the phone that he and Oni have reconciled and have decided to continue on. I wish them the best. Stay tuned for my next project.”
Lynch and Logan, who reformed Lynch Mob to release the 2009 comeback album ‘SMoke And Mirrors’, fell out in July of 2010 when Logan failed to show up for Houston, Texas gig. “Oni let the band and our fans down,” Lynch stated at the time. “He quit the band at 5:30 am before our 7:30 am scheduled flight. He left us high and dry and did not fulfill his commitment. We are saddened and disappointed – but as a band, we are committed to honoring our obligations.”
Unknown Chris Romero was quickly flown in to handle vocal duties on the first two dates of that tour, while Chaz West of Bonham replaced Logan on the remainign tour dates.
In March of 2010 Forte joined Vains Of Jenna when original vocalist Lizzy DeVine departed by saying, “I must move on and let the band grow.” The original musical core of the group — Nicki Kin, JP White and Jacki Stone — took their new voice and hit the studio in July 2010. The outcome was the EP ‘We Can Never Die’, followed by the April 2011 release ‘Reverse Tripped’, a 14 song covers album that included the hit single “F**k You”.
