Don has been done for a while now.  While they can hide it in the studio (Broken Bones was decent IMO), live there is no where to hide.  What he should do is hire Jeff Scott Soto to do lead vocals on tour.  Don could still write the songs, produce, sing backing vocals and MC the live shows, but he really needs to step down as a singer.  Its been done before, Jon Olivia stepped down from vocals on Savatage and they brought in Zak Stevens.  Jon was still on stage behind the keyboards and sang a couple songs here and there.  Yeah, they'd have to be willing to split things 5 ways instead of 4, but at least that way they'd be able to still tour and maybe generate some interest.  As it is, as much as I like Dokken have no interest in seeming them live right now

Agreed Sully, your not kidding. Brace yourself for this one. Jack Russell can't even help him. For the love of God Don hang it up. This is fucking atrocious, just listen to Into the Fire and Alone Again, that's all you need to subject yourself to hear. BRUTAL! I wouldn't attend a backyard BBQ that he was playing for free at this stage of the game cause I'd be afraid I'd probably end up pelting him with eggs or rocks or something  :(

Come ON man. Don's guitar isn't even in tune. Man, what a bummer that was.

That is a tough one, knowing how Don sounds these days, I don't think that is enough to get me to go. That encore performance is liable to be an acoustic thing too, may not even be electric. I've never really delved very deep into Lynch Mob, so I'm not real familiar with their stuff. Lita Ford has a new album due in 2020 but her recent stuff is hit and miss for me. Be cool to hear the old stuff though.
