With message boards becoming a thing of the past I have added links to the official Dokken Facebook sites as well as a link to the Ultimate Dokken Maniacs Facebook Group for your networking and browsing pleasure.
What part of "GROW UP GET OVER IT" escapes Lynch and Pilson and what the hell's wrong with Mick Brown? This isn't The Beatles where there is any musical or financial significance to reforming in its original form. Fact is, Dokken (the band) wouldn't play any more or larger venues with Lynch and Pilson. The music would be no stronger.....personally, the first 4 classic CD's are great but I like the non-Lynch Dokken of latter years better. Jon has established himself "the guitarist" of Dokken, can deliver on all of the classic material and bring great new material in. What makes this more silly in Lynch is touring and making more money with his own projects as captain of his own ship than a member of Dokken and Pilson is touring practically year round with Foreigner. NOW MICK?? If I were Don I'd bounce his happy ass right out the door! Talk about biting the hand that feeds you? Don is ok with Mick backing Ted up so Mick has plenty of dough so WTF is wrong with him and WHY would he betray the guy that took him back after siding with Lynch and Pilson years ago trying to restrict Don from using the DOKKEN name? Being a fan of Dokken and Lynch's solo projects and a musician myself this !@*# embarrasses me, the industry and the individuals and while I commend Don for having the class not to even acknowledge this grudge crap (that BTW won't stand on its own legs because 1/2 the new CD will be re-recorded Dokken classics....real balls there George/Jeff!!!) I still think Don should show enough self-respect to bounce Mick out on his happy ass for betraying a trust and 30 year friendship. Billy D'Allyn
