This is going to be cool...Pat's gonna flip!!
Sounds good to me.
That's great-I have most of the Dokken albums as well as a few Lynch Mob plus one solo George Lynch
Dokken was the best band from the 80s metal scene IMO.
I saw Dokken last summer (free concert! Ratt was there too!!) with Jon Levin on guitar. Mick Brown and Don were there as the only original Dokken members. They had Ted Nugent's Bassist--who kicked ass. (Mick brown plays drums for Nugent when he isn't playing with Dokken) I must say they sounded very good.
Lynch is great and all, but Levin didn't disappoint me at all. If you were just listening to the audio, I doubt you could tell it wasn't Lynch on guitar. As a matter of fact, here is a video of the actual show.
I used to play the Dokken albums reel to reel in my car back in the day, still love them to bits, need to get them on cd now to re-live my youth ...
Saw Don Dokken a while back, and to be honest, although the band were spot on, with that 'Dokken/Lynch guitar sound' the man himself missed his intro cue, and looked and acted a bit .... well .... stoned.
Don't get me wrong, it was a good gig, but as expected, he didn't get those high notes, and I do think it's a bit much to hope to see the same performance as all those years ago. End of the day, it was just so good to see him there.
Just got this ...... great value set.
Is that US or UK only?
Hmmm ... UK I think ... I can only see it advertised in pounds or euros.
