Dokken: 7/27/1986

My friend Jim asked me if I wanted to go to this show. “Hey man! Let’s go rockin’ with Dokken!” I have to say that this band was not even on my radar, but I figured, what the hell. Button South was usually a fun place to hang out, and I’ll go see just about any band once.

I did not know a single song that they played. My thoughts were – meh, they were an OK metal band. Not really my thing, but not the worst band I had seen. I know there are people out there that really like this band, and I have seen lots of praise on the various guitar email newsletters to which I subscribe, but personally, I just never saw the attraction. To me, they were just mediocre. Still, saw them and another band to check off the list.

Rock on!
