So Hell Froze Over

Before we talk Glam, I need to spend 12 seconds talking about the Balloon Boy. Seriously? Did you all watch the news yesterday? A six year old supposedly floating away over Colorado in his father's homemade UFO-like flying machine. The kid was never in the balloon and was found safe in his garage. Of course, he wasn't found until after the damn police and military were mobilized. Watching the flying UFO "carrying the boy" was the craziest news footage I've seen in a long, long time.

Now, the Glam and the hell freezing over part: Dokken and Lynch Mob will play a show together. Seriously. The two bands will share a stage at the House of Blues in Anaheim, California. The show is scheduled for November 29 - Thanksgiving weekend. Tickets are on sale now.

Would it be wrong to take bets on how long the show lasts? Three songs? I'm a little skeptical it will even come off, but sometimes a binding contract helps push things along. I'm not seeing a full fledged tour off this, but I bet both bands could make some decent coin traveling around together and we are in a recession...and everyone needs some extra cash these days.

So, what do we think? Will the Dokken/Lynch Mob show be a success or failure of epic proportions? If I had the money and time, I'd fly to California just to witness this event. I feel it's going to be something to see.

I think it will work, allot of water under the bridge hopefully they have grown from it all.

I think that would be an AMAZING show. Too bad Dokken would headline over George Lynch :(

George needs to get back in Dokken in my opinion.

I would be interested to see if it lasts myself... and if so, I'd love to see em in Baltimore.

I'd love to see a full blown tour of this billing. BUT, will it happen, probably not. We all know the animosity Don and George have towards each other. I wish I could see this gig in Anaheim as I think it will be something very special for us Dokken and Lynch Mob fans. OH WELL, I can't make em all.

I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for Lynch to rejoin Dokken. a few years ago, don Dokken was interviewed on KNAC. He said, not jokingly, that the guitar player in the band at that time actually had to rub don Dokken's feet after the show. can you imagine? don Dokken actually said, again not joking, that after all his years in the business, he earned the right to have his feet rubbed after a performance by his own guitar player. Now my friends, *that* is what you call an inflated ego.

1) Balloon Boy: It's ridiculous that all Cable News outlets would cut away from the President in New Orleans to cover this event. Or at least cut back to the Prez until his town hall was over. What has this country become? A nation of rubberneckers.

2) Betcha George joins Don on stage or vice-versa in Anaheim during an encore. I wonder what song(s) it would be? "It's Not Love"?, "Dream Warriors"?

Allyson, I'm going to this show, since it's local. I'll let you know how it goes, & if I can get any pics or video.
