Former DOKKEN/current LYNCH MOB guitarist George Lynch has posted the following message to his official web site:
"GEORGE LYNCH SOLO LIVE
"Contrary to what is being posted on blabbermouth.com [sic] (great source of rock news but I wish they would check their facts before they print them) LYNCH MOB is not going on tour with MICHAEL SCHENKER. What is actually taking place is I am putting a band together and hitting the road for selected weekend dates. The purpose of this is to be able to finally play songs that I have never played live, including songs from 'Sacred Groove', various EP's I have released ('Riffness', 'Stonehouse' etc.) and possibly even some LP cuts. The band members, song selection and tour dates have not been finalized yet, but I will let you know when they are. At this time I am scheduled to play with Schenker for 2 shows (Dec 19th & 20th) at the H.O.B. in Chicago, but that is all. I am not playing any other shows with Michael at this time. I will update the Tour Dates section with actual shows as they are confirmed.
"This does not mean that LYNCH MOB has broken up but continues to be on hiatus.
[Editor's Note: At this time, Ticketmaster is showing a listing for MICHAEL SCHENKER and LYNCH MOB at the House Of Blues in Chicago on December 19]
"CALIFORNIA ROCK CAMP
"I am excited to announce that I will be participating in a series of California Rock Camps, the first of which will be taking place January 22nd - 25th 2004. It is a 4 day 3 night package, taking place in Long Beach, CA which will include instrument lessons, recording sessions, tips, celebrity Q&A, mini jam and much more. It would be great to see some familiar faces there. Please go to Californiarockcamp.com for more info.
"I have been asked to play guitar on 4 MICKEY RATT songs for a RATT/MICKEY RATT compilation for Cleopatra Records. My understanding is that the one and only Jake E. Lee will be playing on the RATT songs. I will give you an update on this after I lay down my tracks."
