DOKKEN Drummer Says Last Album Should Have Been A DON DOKKEN Solo Effort

In an interview with, longtime DOKKEN drummer Mick Brown dismissed the band's last studio album, 2002's "Long Way Home", as not being a true DOKKEN effort. "That was an interesting time where maybe we were kind of writing to today’s kind of music at the time," he said. "It should have been a Don [Dokken] solo record."

Ironically, the band has been in favor with some modern heavy rockers according to Brown, "Actually, we did a radio show with STAIND and SEVENDUST. It was cool. They were at the side of the stage watching us. They said, 'You're our idols.' That was kind of cool."

With regards to the possibility of guitarist George Lynch returning to the band, Brown said, "Not yet. That could come down the road. We're all grown up now so anything could happen. Never say never with George."
