Don Dokken to possibly reunite with George Lynch in September??
Don Dokken has confirmed that DOKKEN has received an offer to play with former guitarist George Lynch at a concert in September. DOKKEN’s classic lineup reunited for a short Japanese tour in the fall of 2016.
Don said: “We have an offer on the table coming up in September. Mick and I talked about it yesterday; we haven’t made up our mind yet, ’cause we have to think about it.” “I have to protect the franchise — of the [current band, featuring] Mick Brown, Don Dokken, Jon Levin, [our guitarist of] over 20 years, [and] Chris McCarvill [who has] been in the band a long time. I have to protect the franchise, and [George’s] got LYNCH MOB. But, you know when these, we call ’em, ‘honeypot’ shows come up, and they say, ‘Would you mind if George played, and we’ll give you a crazy amount of money?’… “We did the Japanese tour, but we now have maybe a gig coming up on September 7 in Minneapolis at a big casino festival — a huge festival — and I haven’t talked to Jon about it yet.”
