DON DOKKEN picture
Don Dokken is a singer most famous for being the lead singer and founder of the band Dokken. He is known for his vibrato-laden, melodic vocal style which has made him an influential figure in American heavy metal. After enjoying mainstream success with Dokken, he parted ways with the band in 1988 and pursued a solo career. His 1990 solo album, Up From the Ashes, featured Europe guitarist John Norum and spawned two singles.

Don reformed Dokken in the early 1990s and has been continuing on with the band ever since. He released his second solo album titled Solitary in 2008, which was a stylistic departure from his Dokken material. He continues to tour with Dokken today and is known for his unique stage persona.

In the late 1980s, however, personal tension between Dokken and Lynch took its toll on the band. In 1988, after the Monsters of Rock Tour

Further proof that Don Dokken can make a great album without the presence of George Lynch.

This album, the first of Don's solo career, has the classic Dokken sound that fans of the original band crave so badly. Don's voice is just as beautiful, emotional, and powerful as always and the lyrics are in a very familiar vein. Current Dokken lead guitarist John Norum lights it up on the album, along side co-lead guitarist Billy White. Their guitar solos can very easily be mistaken for Lynch solos, and that is a great thing.

All the songs here are good, especially if you love such Dokken albums as "Under Lock and Key" and "Back for the Attack."
