    I always loved their Under a Blood Red Sky live album, absolutely fantastic.

    Ah, I see it was already mentioned right after this post above.

    I actually like Dokken, but the only band they were better than at our MOR show was Kingdom Come.

    Yeah I know. Imagine if they had actually made some new music in 1986 like they planned to. I mean they would have been the biggest thing ever.


    But good olí Gordo needs to acknowledge that he wouldnít be where he is without the rest of the band. Heís good but not that damn good.

    Calling him one dimensional, would be like calling EVH one dimensional, because
    their signature thing is what they do.

    U2 isn't about intricate solo's (i still think the solo in "New Years Day" is perfect, btw),
    it's about creating these lush, open chords & melody (at least during their peak years).

    The Edge uses the delay pedal in a creative way, playing off it to create his own sound.

    I like The Police a lot more, but there's no denying the guy sounds identifiable in a sea
    of soloists, and the fact they had some great albums, and were no afraid to tweak their
    thing and progress.
    Yeah, I agree.

    And I'm sure I'm in the extreme minority around here because they play in the same general field as EVH but even though I was a fan (as almost all teenage boys were in the 80s) of Dokken and Ratt and a few others I just can't understand the overwhelming praise guitarists like Lynch and DeMartini get. I get it, they can really play, but in terms of creating anything of any weight or lasting value they're just relatively vapid to me. They just sound like guys that practice a lot. I knew completely anonymous players in Austin that could do that same stuff. I guess the whole "who can play faster" thing mattered to me for about a year and a half around 9th grade but Jesus, I'd listen to Summers or The Edge all day over them. Even in the flashier hard rock area of the times I never thought they had an iota of the character and substance to their playing as even players like Sykes or Jake E Lee. I'd also rather listen to Steve Clark than most of those more technical guys.

    But it's all subjective, there's room for everyone. I know one thing for sure, they're all better than 99% of the useless electronic crap the last 20 years.

    Well, i'm a huge Warren fan, and what i loved was his solo's, riffs and tone.

    I thought he had clever musical ideas (Morning After, Round & Round, You're in trouble, Lay it down, etc.)
    And he had this blazing soloing style, but balanced it with some really great phrasing & bluesier
    ideas.

    Having said that, i agree, yes, he's still that 80's guy from that 80's band, who were part of a musical
    trend at that time.

    He can play circles around the Edge, but he didn't make the same musical statement the Edge
    did with U2.

    Meaning a statement that really resonated with folks.

    Rush did this as well, by carving their own path beyond other bands, but also by utilizing
    the right combination of musicians to make a unique thing.

    Yeah, me too. Understand they/he has fans; but Dokken is the band that most comes to mind when the movie Spinal Tap is on. From the bad hair piece to the cheesy videos, Dokken makes me cringe. But, to each their own.

    Yeah, and I certainly didn't mean to bash them, I like them just fine. I'll always have a soft spot for all that early-mid 80s hard rock stuff. I was at the perfect age for it. I just meant in relative terms that creative ability and character and so on has always meant more to me than technique. But again, there's nothing wrong with technique either, it's all part of the fun.
