Whitesnake are an English rock band, founded in 1977 by David Coverdale (formerly of Deep Purple). The band’s early material has been compared by critics to Deep Purple but by the mid 1980s Whitesnake had moved away from the early blues influenced hard rock to a more commercial heavy metal style.

Michael Schenker (born 10 January 1955) is a German rock guitarist, best known for his tenure in UFO, in addition to his solo work. He first rose to fame as a founding member of the Scorpions, then achieved fame in the mid 1970s as the lead guitar player for UFO. Since leaving UFO in 1978, he has been leading the Michael Schenker Group in various incarnations. He is the younger brother of Rudolf Schenker, who is still a guitarist with the Scorpions. His career has had many ups and downs, partly due to a long history of alcoholism and personal problems; still, Schenker continues to perform and record and to maintain a following,[1] and is called “a legendary figure in the history of metal guitar.

Lynch Mob is an American band featuring former Dokken guitarist George Lynch, who has been the band’s only permanent member. The rest of the original band which featured Oni Logan, Anthony Esposito and Mick Brown have come and gone, and in some cases, come back. The first Lynch Mob album was released in 1990, titled Wicked Sensation, and it is highly regarded as the group’s best work.

The album featured vocalist Oni Logan who was fired shortly after touring due to unknown reasons. Many feel that songs such as the title track, “River of Love,” “She’s So Evil,” and “For a Million Years” would have done very well in the 80’s “hair metal” scene. However, due to the explosion of grunge and the waning popularity of “hair metal,” the album didn’t make much of an impact but reached gold status in the U.S.

The next album was the self-titled Lynch Mob (released in 1992), which fared even worse upon its release. The album sported many great rock anthems such as “Tangled in the Web” and a cover of Queen’s “Tie your Mother Down.” It featured the vocals of new vocalist Robert Mason (who was asked to join Ratt as a replacement for Stephen Pearcy, but passed). Lynch Mob disbanded after the tour for the album. In 1995, Lynch and drummer Mick Brown would reunite with Dokken.

In 1998, Lynch was let go from Dokken. Consecutively, Lynch attempted to reform the original Lynch Mob line-up. Sadly the band broke-up again after a single writing session. The fruits of this session was a three song demo which ended being released as Syzygy. A Lynch Mob tour of 13 U.S. cities was realised in 1998 featuring vocalist John West (musician), and Anthony Esposito.

Lynch then formed the third incarnation of the group, with all new unknown members taking the music into a rap-metal direction, though the sound was entirely distinct from rapcore bands such as Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park. In 1999, Smoke This was released to disappointed fans and critics. A tour followed the album and the band disbanded again.

In 2003, Robert Mason, original bassist Anthony Esposito, and Lynch reformed to record modernized Lynch Mob and Dokken material. Mick Brown stayed with Dokken and Michael Frowein was hired as the drummer. The new recordings on the album titled REvolution were heavier and faster than the originals. Frowein was replaced by Chas Stumbo (ex-Earshot) for the 2003 REvolution Tour. A Live CD/DVD package of the final show of that tour was later released. While the documented show ended up being the last ever Lynch Mob Show, the audio was from a different performance and often does not match the images.

Lynch has sporadically recorded under the Lynch Mob name and has toured with the band in the past. In 2007, George and his band performed a marathon 26 show/30 day tour, which included a much talked about feature on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. The line-up was ever changing as was the name. Some have apparently also toured under the name ‘Lynch’ as recently as 2007.

Currently, George Lynch seems to be focused on his ‘Guitar Dojo’ lessons. He has toured Europe in 2006 but only under his own name and not the Lynch Mob. The popular lineup of Dokken was set to reunite to play Rocklahoma 2008 in Pryor, OK and tour during the summer however those plans fell apart. George used this chance to reunite Lynch Mob (with vocalist Oni Logan) to play at Rocklahoma 2008 sans Esposito and Brown. As of January 2010, Oni Logan and George Lynch have tried another incarnation of the Lynch Mob. Releasing Smoke and Mirrors in 2009, Anthony Esposito plays bass on tour with former Kiss Guitarist Ace Frehley and is featured on his 2009 release Anomaly, Mick Brown is still doing shows playing drums with Dokken and Ted Nugent andRobert Mason is currently Warrant’s lead singer.

Ugly Kid Joe was an American hard rock band from Isla Vista, California. The band’s name spoofs that of another band, Pretty Boy Floyd. Ugly Kid Joe’s sound touched on a range of styles, including rock, hard rock and heavy metal. In conclusion to the band’s overall sound and vision, the members of the band have cited many times, that they were simply a manifestation of their environment and lifestyles—mounting from their geographic location of Southern California.

The band received popularity in the early- to mid-1990s, with their mix of satirical humor and heavy metal sound. Their logo was a cartoon embodiment of an “ugly kid” wearing a backward baseball hat and giving the finger. Heavily influenced by Black Sabbath, they covered several of their songs, including “Sweet Leaf” and “N.I.B.”. They toured the United States several times—their second tour was in support of Scatterbrain, and later opening for former Black Sabbath lead vocalist Ozzy Osbourne.
