Post GEORGE MR. SCARY Talks about Inability To Keep a Singer!!
GEORGE LYNCH Talks About His Inability To Keep A Steady Singer - Aug. 2, 2004
In a brand-new interview with "The Classic Metal Show", former DOKKEN guitarist George Lynch spoke about the many vocalists he has worked with over the years. Asked if he intentionally changes singers between projects, Lynch replied, "Well, no. I don't intend that to happen. I would prefer that it doesn't. I always audition and hope that I would stay with one band and be family and be brothers and continue on forever like that. Why that doesn't happen? There's lots and lots of reasons. It's partly my own fault. I've been going back through some of my archives, and putting out on my website a record for XCITER, and I was just blown away about how good of a band we were and how great the singer was. I thought to myself, 'Why did I ever get rid of this group?' or 'Why did I allow this to fail?' To me, that was a perfect band. I haven't done anything better since, really. So I don't know. I couldn't tell you, really. I think other people were disillusioned by lack of success or the super challenges or obstacles in our way that we couldn't seem to overcome...personal differences, money issues, creative issues, power struggles. There was always something. I'm not saying that I wasn't the antagonist in any of these situations. Oni Logan was my dream singer at one point, but his abilities live were suspect. It left me very unsatisfied with our live performances, and I think he was too. That was probably it. Doing records with the guy was painful, but when we got it, it was great. Robert Mason, on the other hand, was an incredibly consistent, almost robotic singer, but I don't think he had a great creative mind for original lyrics. So we suffered with him. I thought Robert was great for the road and the shows, but just couldn't write. Kelly Keeling — I love Kelly and would play with Kelly for the rest of my life, but he's in FOREIGNER now. I can't pay him as well as FOREIGNER can, so you know. Kelly and I see eye to eye and are soulmates, and will hopefully do a record together next year."

I agree Ken, I guess he's getting some serious coin with Foreigner? But when they're done, that would be real cool if he hooked up with Lynch again...since Foreigner is NOT metal...LOL :D

I'm sure Foreigner needs Kelly, since they've all lost their singing voices.
