Ratt Bassist Robbie Crane Joins Lynch Mob
September 7, 2010
Ratt bassist Robbie Crane will be the bass player for Lynch Mob on their upcoming European dates.
With a career that spans over 30 years, George Lynch is one of the most influential guitarist in modern music. In the 1980’s, Lynch’s guitar playing and songwriting catapulted the band Dokken into a highly successful, muti-platinum act. His work with Dokken solidified Lynch as a full-blown guitar hero, earning a Grammy nomination in 1989 for best instrumental. After recording and touring relentlessly through much of the decade, Lynch left Dokken in 1989 to form Lynch Mob. After seventeen long years Oni Logan and George Lynch are back together and they found again an incredible chemistry that brought them to write some killer new songs.
