Don Dokken Says Reunion Is About Money


(Classic Rock) Don Dokken says his Dokken reunion is "about money" and that he believes the same to be true of the Guns N' Roses classic lineup's comeback. The frontman will be joined by George Lynch, Jeff Pilson and Mick Brown for a run of six shows in Japan in October, after which Dokken will revert to the current lineup of Don, Brown, guitarist Jon Levin and bassist Chris McCarvill.

And Don Dokken makes no bones about the fact that the reunion has come about to boost their bank balances rather than because they have any real love for each other.

Dokken tells Eddie Trunk Live (via Blabbermouth): "I'm looking forward to playing with George and Jeff. Of course, Mick's 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.

"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 because they're all madly in love with each other? I don't think so." Read more here.
