That was because Mike Stone didn't rate him as a drummer.Stone wanted a drummer that he knew was good in the studio, hence why he called in Steve Smith.

It is quite different to the Elektra version. Totally different mix, different vocal takes on certain songs, different guitar work in places too. It was released as Don Dokken 'Breaking The Chains' (with Don on the cover) and under the Dokken band name on Carrerre. The cover is the same as the Elektra release essentially, except it's purple/white artwork rather than red/white. 'Paris is Burn

'Bounce' was indeed a single. Admittedly released in 2002 as a US radio only 'single'. It did however get released commercially in Japan as a double A-side with 'Misunderstood'.

I wrote a feature on the American Dream series in CR AOR issue 10. Some of the shows didn't happen because of low ticket sales (Cry Wolf being one) and others because of record label politics (Valentine). The only shows Steve remembers selling out were Danger Danger, Bang Tango and Warrior Soul.

The original drummer lined up for this project was Hendrik 'Hempo' Hilden (Trash, Baltimoore, John Norum etc.) but apparently a drunken mishap during rehearsals led to him being sent home and Ken and Mikkey being called in.

The label didn't want this track on the album, in fact they didn't even want the band to record it. Mr. Cooper had to fight them to have it included.

Yes, just reviewed it. I think it's a fantastic record. It's a very melodic, very heavy concept record. The vocals lean more toward clean but Tommy stills roars when he needs to. Here's how Dan Briggs describes the thinking behind it;'Spending the last year immersed in a world of Quadrophenia, Operation Mindcrime, The Wall- as well as Sondheim and Lloyd Webber musicals, Stravinsky and Mussorgsky

They already have a new album out Terry ('Long Road Made Of Gold'), although 'The Search Goes On' (came out last February and was the first to feature former Opeth guy Per Wiberg as a full member)) is definitely an awesome release. Thomas 'Juneor' Andersson has a great voice and is a damn fine guitarist.

Chris Heilmann is in Bernie Torme's band. Greg Ellis has made a very successful career as a session drummer and film music composer. Spencer Sercombe has played in a number of bands since Shark island (including Riverdogs and Bill Ward's band) but not sure what he's up to these days.

'Until the bands arrive & tell us set lengths, nothing can be confirmed.' Really? This should all be confirmed in the advancing. Every tour I work on the stage times are agreed with the venues well in advance. The TM will/should have sent you all of this information along with the band's riders (tech and catering). The TM will want to know the venue tech specs, door times,load in situatio

Both of those covers are correct actually. Carrerre released Breaking The Chains as a Dokken album with the purple logo cover(I have the vinyl), as well as the Don Dokken release with the chains cover, they also released the title track as a single with similar artwork. The red version is the re-issue cover (readily available, the CD version has this cover) with the remixed/redone tracks and the
