    @Clam, are you the guy on the left or the guy on the right?

    If you're the one on the left it's the coolest thing that's ever happened on this forum.

    If you're the guy on the right then that's cool too.

    Welcome to AGF. I love George's playing too.

    Did he just wake up? He just looks different for some reason. Then again I haven't been face to face with him in probably 12 years.

    Cool picture though.

    Welcome clam...the pics all show up for me. I was definitely a Dokken and Lynch fan in the day. I just saw a vid of him melting faces at some outdoor venue recently and he was playing a yellow DC Jr. similar to the one In the photo. If you heard just the audio I doubt you would guess he was playing one of those.

    I was never a huge Dokken fan, BUT I think Tooth and Nail is a very underrated album. And George is one of the best that came from the "Hair Band" era.

    Yep, he’s an awesome guy. We still talk. Unfortunately, I’m going to have to seller that guitar. I’m terminally ill and want to leave the $$ to my kids. (this is not the reason why I joined the forum though)

    I’m so uncool. I could never make bright blue pants work.

    He did just wake up. We stayed at the same hotel in Dallas in November for a Lynch Mob show at Trees

    Absolutely a big Lynch fan, dude is a monster.

    As long as you don't go by what you hear on the records, yes. George himself said they're all cut and paste jobs, whereas others have stipulated it's probably people like Steve Lukather who played his solos. Regardless of what happened on the albums, dude can play in real life as plenty of video's can attest.

    Welcome @Clam and thanks for sharing! I once had a real ESP MIJ lynch purple tiger but I later traded it cause it weighed like 14 lbs and the neck carve wasn't quite for me.

    Gotta admit, Don was pretty consistent when it came to chorus writing

    Just. Got. Lucky.
    Into. The. Fire.
    Breaking. The. Chains.
    In. My. Dreams.
    Unchain. The. Night.
    Tooth. and. Nail.

    He really loved that 3 word format :D
