George Lynch found success in "Dokken" back in the 80's and was quickly touted as one of the genre's best guitarists.  

Even though Dokken was never quite "Metal" they had some heavy moments, mostly because of Lynch.  He went onto have success after Dokken with "Lynch Mob", a blusier and more gritty band that sounded closer to Aerosmith.  They were victims of the change in scenery in the early 90's, but have continued to put out music here and there over the years.

Lynch is still a monster player and is very well respected among his peers. Here he is at last year's Halfway jam with the instrumental "Mr. Scary".
