Jeff Pilson and George Lynch Release “Heavy Hitters”

Jeff Pilson and George Lynch: Heavy HittersLongtime collaborators George Lynch and Jeff Pilson have teamed up once again to release a covers album called Heavy Hitters. The duo, known in part for their work in Dokken, take songs from a wide spectrum of genres and add heavier elements to them. Songs on the album are taken from artists like Prince, Madonna, R.E.M., Rufus & Chaka Khan, and more.

“The purpose of this whole record, besides having a lot of fun making it, was to take amazing hit songs and interpret them in a way that was true to the greatness of the original but that also brought something new and fresh to the song,” Pilson writes on his blog. “‘Ordinary World’ is such a great melodic and emotional song, a song I think George and I have always loved. We just wanted to add some heaviness, a little George Lynch soulful playing and then let Wil fly with that phenomenal voice.”
