DON DOKKEN Says There Is 'No Possibility' Of Reunion With GEORGE LYNCH

As he prepared for VH1 Classic's "Metal Mania: Stripped Across America Tour 2005", Don Dokken called into "The Hairball John Radio Show" to discuss his participation in the "Metal Mania" tour, the upcoming DOKKEN holiday dates and the status of his solo disc as well as the new studio release from DOKKEN, entitled "Lightning Strikes Again". Dokken was also asked to set the record straight, once and for all, regarding the possibility of a DOKKEN reunion with guitarist George Lynch.

Don Dokken: "No. No possibility. I read all about it on the Internet. I read all about what I was doing and getting together with George and I thought, 'Gee, everyone knows about the reunion tour but me.' (laughing) And actually I talked with George, we hadn't seen each other in years, and we actually ran into each other at a store and just chatted about someday doing a reunion but I don't see what's the point to tell you the truth. There was magic at one point in our careers, but everyone knows that George and I from day one never got along; our personalities are absolutely opposites."

The entire 16-minute interview with Don Dokken is available on demand in full streaming audio at the web site of "The Hairball John Radio Show".
