Don Dokken taked with Mitch Lafon about the possibility of more Dokken classic-lineup shows.
“It’s not on the radar for me. I’m only focused on the current lineup and the next record, and I can’t think that far down the road.
“All I care about is putting out a new Dokken record with Jon Levin and Chris McCarvill and ‘Wild’ Mick Brown, and that’s going to be it. As far as reunion shows, I can’t imagine why Jeff [Pilson, bass] would want to leave Foreigner. He’s got a great gig there.
“If we were going to do it, I think it would be obvious why we would do those shows – probably for the money. Those offers have been coming to me for years – like, crazy amounts of money to play. But I don’t have the desire right now.
“We did the Japan tour, 20 years later; we did a reunion; we did a video; we did a DVD; we wrote a new song, a couple remakes, acoustic. That should have to appease the fans until I decide what to do, but right now, I’m just going to focus on the next Dokken record.
“I’m sure everybody’s got a lot of stuff on their plate. George says maybe in 2019. We have a standing offer from Frontiers Records to do my next Dokken album and a Dokken original lineup record, but it’s way down the line. It’s not on my radar.”
I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
