Don Dokken has always had a reputation for being temperamental, but he seems to have taken that crankiness to a whole new level recently. Insulting local opening bands, chastising sound people — is Don losing the plot or is he simply turning into a grumpy old man? Either way, with or without guitar maestro George Lynch, when Dokken (the band) hit their stride, songs like “The Hunter” and “Into the Fire” still sound magnificent live. The classic lineup that includes Lynch has reformed occasionally in recent years, but this isn’t it. Still, former Warlock/Doro man Jon Levin is an excellent player, more than capable of shredding through a tune like the Freddy Krueger–approved “Dream Warriors.” As for Don himself, the frontman can wail with the best of them. There hasn’t been any new material in a while, so expect a killer greatest-hits set.
