Dokken founder and frontman Don Dokken was recently interviewed by Mitch Lafon along with co-host Alan Niven for the Rock Talk with Mitch Lafon podcast.
In February 2020, Don Dokken has revealed that he had undergone a spine surgery 2.5 months ago that left his hands paralyzed. Shortly after, the Dokken frontman issued a statement advising that he expected to fully recover from his partial right hand / arm paralysis.
On that topic, Don Dokken told Lafon and Niven:
“I can’t play, so when you can’t play guitar it’s kind of hard to compose a song… it’s been seven months and my right arm is still paralyzed.”
