Final month, Lynch introduced that he had recruited West sing for GEORGE LYNCH AND ELECTRIC FREEDOM after the departure of Andrew Freeman (LAST IN LINE, GREAT WHITE). He mentioned Andrew Daly of WWMusic how he enlisted West for the challenge: “Properly, I do know Ray for some time as a result of he was good mates with [former LYNCH MOB singer] Oni [Logan]; they form of got here collectively. Within the pasture-LYNCH MOB days in Florida, Oni and Ray had loads of historical past, they usually have been form of on the identical stage, however Oni hit a bit tougher than Ray accomplished till it made an affect and made a reputation for itself. Nevertheless it’s actually fascinating as a result of they kind of come out of the identical mould. So with Ray, he is excellent for the band, you already know? And so what occurred was Rob DeLuca was within the band for some time as a bassist, so once we misplaced Andrew at GREAT WHITE, Rob mentioned, ‘Hey, you need to verify Ray.’ And I hadn’t even considered it, however Rob mentioned, ‘Test it out. He may be a pure match. And that is what I did, and he actually is. I imply, I most likely could not have designed a greater slot in a lab.”
requested how he feels Ray will carry to the desk, george mentioned, “Properly, LYNCH MOB has been a revolving door for certain. At this level, there have been extra individuals who have been on this group than there haven’t been. [Laughs]. And so it hasn’t all the time been the proper guys that I’d have preferred to handpick. It is nearly like, and I do not imply to sound adverse in any manner, however it’s all the time been extra about comfort at instances. It is like this: whenever you select one other member of the band, whether or not it is a drummer, vocalist, bassist or no matter — and that occurs with lots of people I’ve performed with — it does not all the time click on. However I believe there’s a little distinction in Ray it is like I am stepping again in time.
“Once we fashioned LYNCH MOB initially in 89, the world was our oyster. We had trials all around the world and we actually took our time as a result of we simply needed to hit exhausting proper out of the field. With out all of the hype and expectations, I believe I make some sense with Ray that he might have been that different man as a substitute of Oni. And that does not imply there was something mistaken with it Oni; it is extra an affidavit of Raythat I believe he might have simply been the man again then.
“Truthfully, I do not see any weak factors with this man. There are guys who cannot do it within the studio, or they can not do it stay as a result of they’re probably not a pacesetter. You see some guys who do not write lyrics, or they don’t seem to be poets that manner. Some guys simply do not have the expertise for melodies; they only do not have a way of them. Or they will write lyrics , however they don’t seem to be poets. There’s all these various things, and stylistically, yeah, you would have a man who’s only a freak machine, however he has no soul, and he lacking this factor that basically suits the legacy of the music so with all of these items, for me it’s important to put all of it collectively, and once more I believe with anyone else who has already walked within the door, toured and recorded, I’ve loved each minute of it, and I respect everybody I’ve performed with. Hey, it has been a beautiful expertise and journey, however I believe Ray is a bit just like the cap on the finish of the bookcase. I imply, in fact, you by no means know, and I assume nothing is eternally, particularly on this band. [Laughs]. We might have this dialog once more in six months, and possibly the turnstile would flip once more, and we needed to discover a new man. I do not foresee that, however I’ve discovered fairly effectively that with this band, you by no means know. However proper now, I actually respect the truth that we have met, and that we will, and I am very excited. I do know Raymay be very excited too. He is on prime and so are we, and I believe it is a bit contagious.
“While you get a bit older like me, it begins to get a bit tougher to get round. The result’s that it takes me a bit longer to begin my engine, so it is form of like, ‘Hey effectively, we have had thirty-five guys on this band. OK, that is quantity thirty-six. Let’s examine. However, you already know, I am actually, actually excited, and we’re all the time thrilled to have some new guys and having some recent blood. However this one is much more of a particularly full of life factor for us as a result of I believe Ray going to carry new life into our entire little world right here. And we plan to make a document; we simply signed as much as do one other album. Will probably be by Borders [Music Srl]and this shall be my first official ELECTRIC FREEDOM registration.”
