My Life. My Music. Your Voyeurism.

It all comes around to Dokken again…

and ellipses.

So I am at the local Fresh Plus grocery store which is a trendy little hippie run place in Clarksville. I really hate the place because of the scenesters that work there that look at you funny because you walk in with a Black Sabbath shirt on.

But I went in today cuz I wanted some fresh ground beef and theirs is always cheap (I think it’s human meat, not cow but whatever) and it’s only a few blocks away. One of the floppy haired kids that worked there was wearing an ’88 Dokken tour shirt, original. As I was leaving I asked to check out the back but this shirt was for the west coast leg of the tour. I told him I saw that tour in Virginia and he freaked out. He asked who they played with and I mentioned that it was Aerosmith when they were still gasping their last breath of air in being a decent band. Yeah, they suck now.

It was obvious the kid didn’t really know what he was wearing, but it was a nice trip down memory lane. Both Dokken and Aerosmith kicked ass that night.

The down side of that night was that I was supposed to meet up with a girl I had been hanging out with at the time. Lisa. She was a pretty blonde haired, blue eyed petite girl who was really nice. I got to the show at Hampton Coliseum and saw her holding hands with the guy that she broke up with a month or 2 earlier. I was a little broken hearted but I got over it quickly once Dokken hit the stage. My buddies and I pushed our way all the way to the front and rocked out on the barricade front and center.

Good times.

  1. Dokken, one of the great metal bands. George Lynch is revered overseas as a guitar god. Him, Reb Beech, Nuno, Edward…. great players. You just do not hear guitarist like them much anymore.
