GEORGE LYNCH Says ROBERT MASON Is 'Not Aligned' With Him And JEFF PILSON Politically: 'We Can Agree To Disagree'
In a new interview with "Pariah Burke's Hard, Heavy & Hair" show, George Lynch was asked about the overall lyrical message of the recently released sophomore album from his THE END MACHINE project, "Phase2". He responded (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): "I have to answer that with a caveat. Jeff [Pilson; THE END MACHINE, FOREIGNER and ex-DOKKEN bassist] and I are aligned politically — we're both very progressive in our political thinking and our little bit of activism that we try to participate in through our music. I don't know how effective that is — probably not effective at all — but we feel compelled to try to do that because we feel it's the right thing to do. Robert [Mason; THE END MACHINE and WARRANT singer] is not aligned with us politically in his messaging, so when we were writing the lyrics, of course, there's a little bit of a rub there. But we all respect each other enough to at least honor the idea of deducing truth from whatever it is we're discussing. And we can have a difference of opinion on the results of that analysis, but we don't have a difference of opinion about how we achieve that, how we go about deciding if something is truthful or not. So we're able to have discussions that are pretty civil and we can agree to disagree. And a lot of that is filtered down to some of the lyrics."
