DOKKEN have hired Italian guitarist Alex De Rosso as the replacement for ex-EUROPE axeman John Norum, who is said to have "suffered an injury to his hand a few nights ago at a show on the European tour," according to the band's official web site. "The extent of this injury is unknown at this point. [John] he flew back home to Sweden to have it looked at — we should know more within a week or so. Until John is able to return, the band has hired Alex De Rosso to fill in for him. If John is unable to play the shows for the summer tour in the US, Alex will continue to play."For more information on De Rosso, visit his official web site at this location.
