I've seen the video, and I own the LP. I never got from it what you did. I just saw and heard a singer giving an impassioned (and silky smooth) performance. And his part of the song is a highlight for me. I love the juxtaposition of Dokken's voice alongside the likes of Dio, Halford, Shortino, and Tate.

Having said, all of this, I should point out that I wouldn't even consider putting Don Dokken on my list of "Best Hair Metal Singers Ever." I strongly doubt he'd even make my top 20. I have just suspected for a long time that at least some of the disrespect he gets nowadays has got to be due to the smoothness of his voice. He stood out from many other singers from his era. I get that he's supposed to be a bit of a d*ck, and that his voice is pretty shot, but IMHO, he was a solid singer back in his day. I'd take him in a heartbeat over Neil, Pearcy, Dubrow, and a good number of his other contemporaries.

*side note - There's been talk on here recently about thrash. I have discovered that I can pretty much no longer listen to Raven. Johnk Gallagher's vocals were never my favorite, but I find them almost unlistenable now.
