DOKKEN leader Don Dokken was interviewed on the August 8 edition of the SiriusXM satellite radio show “Eddie Trunk Live”.
On money being the main motivating factor in the classic DOKKEN lineup reuniting for a handful of shows in Japan this fall:
Don: “I’m looking forward to playing with George [Lynch, guitar] and Jeff [Pilson, bass]. Of course, Mick’s [Brown, drums] still in DOKKEN, the current lineup. It’s not glorious. But when someone sticks an ‘X’ amount of dollars with a lot of zeroes attached, what are you gonna say? ‘No, I’m busy’? I mean, c’mon, man. You think David Lee Roth went back with VAN HALEN because he just felt like it. I mean, it’s about money. And GUNS N’ ROSES — do you think they’re doing it ’cause they’re all madly in love with each other? I don’t think so.
