    No longer rockin’ with Dokken, former bassist Jeff Pilson has filed a lawsuit on November 4th in a Californias Superior Court in Los Angeles against vocalist and namesake Don Dokken and drummer Mick Brown.

    Pilson wishes to dissolve any musical and financial partnership with the band since they “wrongfully” hired a replacement bassist in the recording and touring of their most recent album Long Way Home. The lawsuit is claiming that Dokken was in breach of contract and is seeking a full dissolution of the band’s business partnership, which will include complete accounting and

    Pilson is claiming breach of contract and demanding a full dissolution of the band's business partnership, along with a complete accounting and reconciling of financial details, including attorney's fees and court costs.

    Pilson is currently working on new material with another former Dokken bandmate, guitarist George Lynch.

    It's a shame that bands can't just get together and jam for a good time anymore... Contracts and lawyers, and paranoia prevail! [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img]

    I don't know what dissolves quicker: a rock and roll band or a marriage.

    This is true in many ways. In some cases everyway (see: Fleetwood Mac, Culture Club etc.)

    Jeff is doing the right thing. Dokken cannot go on like they did the past album and tour. Even Mick quit at the end. As of now, it is Don Dokken and a bunch of other guys...Why not just call it his solo band? Don Dokken is most of the reason that the band couldn't stay together. He is just too hard to work and perform with. He nearly ruined the show I went to when he kept getting pissed at the sound guys and ran backstage with a look on his face like he was ready to kill them. The guy has to realize that he is playing in bars now and that it is time to let the ego lower. It is hard for a crowd to have fun when the frontman is so pissed.
