Jeff Pilson and Mick Brown part of Super Stroke project with George Lynch and Robert Mason
Former Dokken and current Foreigner bassist Jeff Pilson was recently interviewed by Glide Magazine and spoke about the new project Super Stroke that he, guitarist George Lynch, drummer Mick Brown and singer Robert Mason will be taking part in.
Sleaze Roxx had previously announced back in September 2017 that former Dokken and current Lynch Mob, KXM and Sweet & Lynch guitarist George Lynch had a new project that involved current Warrant and former Lynch Mob and Big Cock lead vocalist Robert Mason.
Pilson stated as follows to Glide Magazine about Super Stroke: “I have a project that we’ll be announcing soon that is George Lynch, Mick Brown and I, from Dokken. We have a project with Robert Mason called Super Stroke. It won’t be coming out until well into next year but we’ve already written a lot of songs for that and it’s absolutely stupendous. I am really proud of that and real excited.”
In terms of what it sounds like and whether it is leaning more towards the Dokken sound, Pilson advised: “There’s definitely some Dokken in there. There is a little bit of the straight-ahead Lynch Mob-ness in certain aspects but then another aspect we get quite musical. It’s not progressive but very musical. Some of the songs are pretty epic in their musicality. George is playing his ass off. I mean, the whole band is playing great, I got to say. And Robert is just an amazing singer and it’s so much fun. Robert is in Warrant right now, and he was the second singer for Lynch Mob. There’s a lot of connections in there. So I’m doing that.”
Lynch, Pilson and Brown have of course played together in Dokken but also in T&N which released one album entitled Slave To The Empire back in 2012, which included some reworked Dokken classics. Lynch, Brown and Mason have played together in Lynch Mob in the past.
