    The flatted 5th was referred in previous centuries as that. George does use it a lot with this rhythm work. I remember reading a GFTPM interview back when Jake I think was with Ozzy and he was discussing his rhythm playing. He then made mention of he varies his work a bit unlike George who uses the flatted fifth all the time and played a pseudo riff.

    Regarding the look. The music industry when Gary turned down Ozzy was vastly different than when Jake replaced Randy. MTV wasn't around when Ozzy went solo. Christopher Cross was winning grammy's. When Jake joined, MTV had started and one by that time had to look a certain way. However I don't think George didn't suffer from the look. However his stage presence is closer to Wolfgang Van Halen than Eddie Van Halen. Jake had it. George really doesn't. He really stands there in one place and if he doesn't have a good sound, will stare at his amp.

    I think Don suffered a stroke recently, where he was partially paralyzed.
    that could be the lack of mobility and monotone vocals.
    But at that point, why bother doing it?

    What happened to Jon Levin?

    He sounded more like Lynch than George Lynch does.

    That is sad. He is in no shape to sing anymore. Somebody has to tell him you can't do this. It's over.

    No way a reunion can happen.

    I am all for guys giving it the old college try. Father Time is undefeated but if it makes you happy, go for it., This makes Dave sound like Freddie. Its sad because while he did have diminishing skills, that stroke just finished him. Feel sad for the guy but he needs to hang it up

    He's had a series of health setbacks, but still wants to do it.

    The question is: Can he do it?

    Sadly, not really.

    He sounded more like Lynch than George Lynch does.
    Dokken put out a statement that Jon Levin was just sitting out this tour due to Covid19. He is the caregiver to a senior.

    Reb Beach has free time from Whitesnake/Winger right now. Plus knows all the songs.

    Poor Don. I heard this news yesterday and was bummed. Granted, I was never a big Dokken fan, but they did light up the world a bit (and George Lynch is tremendous...plus, Jeff Pilson is a great, down-to-earth, hard-working guy).

    It's almost like Don is doing spoken word interpretations of these songs.

    Couldn't find the George Lynch thread but looks like everybody was right when they said Lynch Mob would be no more due to its name. George is woke so his last album with them is this reimagined POS of the first album.

    Wow. Someone needs to pull Don aside and tell him that the ride is over, at least until his rehab is completed and he gets more of his motor functions back.

    That's stealing peoples money.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
