DON DOKKEN Weighs In On New GEORGE LYNCH & JEFF PILSON Covers Album - "They Must Be Really Bored; I Don't Get It"

Deadline Music, a division of Cleopatra Records, Inc., released Heavy Hitters, the new album from former Dokken members George Lynch and Jeff Pilson, on December 18th. Guesting on The Classic Metal Show, Dokken frontman Don Dokken weighed in on the release.

Don: "No offense, they are good songs, but those are vanilla tunes. They must be really bored. But, everybody's got their mantra; everybody's got their financial things, I guess. If a record company is willing to give you money to put out pablum, then put out the pablum, but I hope my standards as a songwriter are a little higher than that. If I'm gonna do a remake, I'm gonna do something that was super cool, like 'Paint It Black' by The Rolling Stones, or 'Revolution' by The Beatles, or something that's awesome. I don't get it. I don't know what's going on with those guys."

Check out the interview here.

Guitar-shredding virtuoso Lynch re-teams with former Dokken bandmate Pilson for a set of new studio recordings that turn pop music classics into powerful metal anthems. The album features jaw-dropping renditions of Duran Duran’s “Ordinary World”, Prince’s “Kiss”, OneRepublic’s “Apologize”, Carole King’s “I Feel The Earth”, Oasis’ “Champagne Supernova” and more.
