The Canyon Santa Clarita is bringing in an architect of American metal right to our backyard for our enjoyment, from an artist with roots in the Santa Clarita Valley.
Dokken has sold more than 10 million records since the band was formed in 1979, noted as much for the shredding riffs of lead guitarist, George Lynch, as for the searing vocals of founder Don Dokken.
Now fans of their catalogue, which includes hits like “Alone Again,” “In My Dreams” and “Burning Like a Flame,” can enjoy the music in an intimate, live venue.
Lynch Mob was formed in 1989 when the original lineup of Dokken stopped touring together, with its most commercially successful effort being “Wicked Sensation,” which charted not long after its 1990 release.
The band followed with a number of popular metal tracks, including “Wicked Sensation,” “River Of Love” and “Dream Until Tomorrow.”
The band is set to perform June 28 at The Canyon, with Kenny Shipman, a blues rock power trio, and BlackVoid, which describes itself as an original hard rock and heavy metal band, scheduled as the opening acts.
