In the early 1980s, Dokken burst onto the glam-metal scene, blowing away audiences in America and Europe and garnering a Grammy nomination with booming Marshall stacks, skeleton-shaped guitars, and cut-off leather jackets. In concert, singer Don Dokken’s stadium-style vocals complement three-part harmonies while guitarist Jon Levin’s soloing fingers travel up a tribal-patterned guitar neck. Original drummer Mick Brown bludgeons his drum kit with heavy hits, which complete a rhythm section bolstered by bassist Sean McNabb, a former member of Quiet Riot. Chugging through tunes off its upcoming release, Broken Bones, Dokken also reawakens longtime fans' nostalgia and desire to feather their hair by breaking into Billboard chart-toppers such as “In My Dreams.”
