One of the things that I have found amusing with Hear N' Aid was that you had Kevin DuBrow in the studio with Paul Shortino who not long after replaced Kevin in Quiet Riot, and you had Vivian Campbell in the studio with Craig Goldy who not long after replaced Vivian in Dio.

BTW Jimmy Page was supposed to show up and lay down some tracks for the Hear N' Aid sessions. Ronnie had talked to him, and Jimmy commited to it but then never showed up. The next time Ronnie ran into him, Jimmy didn't apologize or even offer up an excuse as to why he flaked, needless to say it really pissed Ronnie off and he made sure the press was aware of it.

Now that's interesting and disappointing as I adore Page ~ "The Firm" especially ~ I just wiki'd ~ HNA raised a million dollars for starvation ~ I just never liked the song's hook ~ "We're Stars" ~ it was sort of Saturday Night Live "skittish" to me ~

Peace,

This is from the mid 80's ~ in Norfolk, VA ~ there were several clubs on one road ~ we would all club "hop" ~ the scene was thriving ~

There were many talented musicians ~ many of whom still rock ~

The only inconsistency I see is Jeff IS a rockstar, and the other 3 wanna BE a rockstar. Classic example...the 'In My Dreams' stunning guitar playing by Don desperatly trying to keep in sync with Jeff as he plays his adorable set of 'air drums' . Chopping wood should only be done when trying to build a fire...so he should stick with Mick... and together they can tour the casinos and bowling alleys, chopping enough wood to build a bonfire.

Ken is amazingly resourceful when it comes to 'digging up stuff'.

Well ~ looks like my fun's over on this thread ~ for a while anyway ~ been told I'm kicking a man when he's "down" ~ Uhm.....

More Don Dokken crap from George Lynch.

http://www.hairbandrock.com/newsroom/43 ... -liar.html

It's pretty obvious. Jeff, George and Mick play together without Don, so who is the common denominator.

Here is another recent article interviewing George Lynch where he fires back at some of the insults Don made about him

It's funny...they went on That Metal Show...and said the whole feud was PR driven by the label....


No PR there.

Post Re: The "Truth" about Don Dokken
So I received a letter via email (to an email account not even related to this site...so I don't know if it's real or not)....It states I will receive a letter at home, so I'm still waiting for it the real one to arrive.

DOKKEN v Hower. To take down this thread, or face a lawsuit.

So expect it to come down when I get a REAL letter...Fortunately, I now know that every thing written is true, as I now know the source. You can't slander, if it's true....but I really don't feel like fighting anyone.

The sad part of about Don is....if the guy just emailed the webmaster account and asked nicely....I would remove it as common courtesy, based on a personal request.
