dondokken640 Don Dokken was a guest on the September 28th broadcast of Eddie’s Sirius/XM show, Eddie Trunk Live. Portions of the interview appear below as transcribed by

Dokken confirmed to Eddie that there have been talks about a reunion with Lynch, bassist Jeff Pilson and drummer Mick Brown, but claimed that scheduling conflicts with Pilson’s main band, Foreigner, have derailed those pland

“I talked to George about the Dokken reunion,” Don said. “It’s been going on for two years. We were all up for it. But Jeff is busy with Foreigner until 2018. And he said, ‘Well, let’s do it in 2018.’ By then, ISIS might be running this country. So it’s off the books. It’s not happening.”

In an August 2015 interview with Glide Magazine, guitarist George Lynch said the possibility of a Dokken reunion, “comes and goes every couple of years [laughs], so who knows. But we’re talking again about that.”

    In light of recent events, if Blotz or DiMartini get their way none other then the one, the only Juan Crucier may be available to step in. It’s not like Pilson is John Paul Jones. Crucier can play bass rather well and he sings to boot. Maybe DOKKEN can throw in a few RATT tunes as well? I’d rather hear Don sing YOU’RE IN LOVE and WAY COOL JR. than lesser DOKKEN stuff. I like Crucier after seeing those videos. Now could DOKKEN end up in court fighting over his own name? DON DOKKEN’S DOKKEN as opposed to MICK BROWNS DOKKEN. How about: JUAN CRUCIER OF RATT’S DOKKEN FEATURING DON DOKKEN ON VOCALS?

      how about “it’s not dokken”?

    Dana, you’re the best ever but showing Don with a cigarette dangling from his mouth may encourage young people to become mediocre singers in TIER 4 hard rock bands. Mediocre singers that are difficult to work with at that. Very irresponsible indeed. You’re gonna inspire a whole generation of kids to have a few good years followed by 30+ of irrelevance.

      Michael, I’m so glad that you are concerned about this danger to the youth of America. And Don’s politics! My word, he actually supports ISIS! He doesn’t trust our armed forces! Tipper Gore can renew her attack on Dee Snider and other musicians sliding to irrelevance by requiring them to add a PMRC label to their array of tattoos.

      Haha, that was funny (seriously).

    Since Don and George seem to be buddy buddy, they should do it without Pilson. I’m sure that would also be a great draw. It was funny that in Blotz’s book how he wrote how much he hated Don, but they seemed to get along nicely. Definitely a history between them, back to 1976, and too funny that Gilby Clarke would go watch them practice way back then.

    Do we really need a reunion from every band? Will there be a demand? Will it make money?
    Where will they play? ….Best Western?
    I like some of the old dokken stuff but come on… we don’t need a reunion.
    Listen to the old albums and turn it up loud.

    I still can’t believe that both Dokken and Lynch Mob were at the M3 in 2012, and no songs together. Very disappointing to have Don and George in the same venue, on the same day, and nothing.
