Damn I can’t stand being a singer. I always wanted to be a lead guitar player. And guitar is always my thing. I’ve played guitar for close to sixty years
There is a part of me that wants to do one last Dokken record. I know that Don and George feel that way too, that we have one more strong record in us.

Our debut album would have a different kind of darkness and apocalyptic feeling to it where as Epitaph is much more emotive.
It’s a life achievement. It is a religion of vision. What else can we say? A piece of art, it’s a seventh wonder of the world.
you really need to listen to the CD to get the full impact of it. We worked hard on making them, and they should take the listener on a journey.
No matter what we do, it always sounds like Tesla because of Jeff’s voice, it is so recognisable, because of the way he sings and the way he writes.
