Dokken Hoping to Reunite Original Line-Up for Tour

Share This:

Jeff Pilson (Dokken, Foreigner) has spoken about the possibility of a reunion of Dokken’s classic line-up, speaking on the One On One with Mitch Lafon Podcast.

According to Blabbermouth.net, Pilson has said: “We’re actually working really hard to try and pull something together right now. It has to fall in spaces where there is time off [from my gig with Foreigner], so I don’t know for sure whether it’s gonna happen. So let’s just say we’re all friendly now, we’re all past all the decades-old crap, and we all talk and everything’s great. Now it really is just down to scheduling and trying to figure it out. Because, you know, you’ve gotta do it right, if you’re gonna do it. We all feel that way.

“I think we’ve all come to a place where we’re very appreciative of the legacy that Dokken has, and we would never wanna just do something for the money and take advantage. We get offered a lot of things quite often, and if we wanted to do it that way, we could. But the fact that we don’t, I think, is a great sign. I think when we do finally do something, we’re gonna try and do it right. Although I don’t know if we’re gonna ever get to do the big sweeping tour that we’ve talked about — mostly because of the Foreigner commitment — but we’re gonna try and do something. So hopefully I’ll have something to report sometime soon.

“We shared something very special together. I think we’re all at the point in life where we kind of appreciate it now. And if we ever get a chance to do some more with it, I think… It would be very interesting, because we’ve never been in a situation where there wasn’t animosity, so I don’t know. (Laughs) Maybe it won’t work. I don’t know. (Laughs)”
