Don Dokken revealed that movie streaming platform Netflix is working on a new movie about Dokken from the ’80s.
During a recent interview with Jay Scott of “The Hook Rocks” podcast, Don Dokken said:
“It’s going to be a good movie. A couple of months ago I went down and they wanted to film me at the Whisky where we started. And they just asked me questions, and they said, ‘Well, we wanna know…’ Because there’s been so much talked about the Whisky (A Go Go) and the Rainbow and everything that went on, and people don’t realize The Doors were the house band at the Whisky at one point.
”And I just said, ‘Well, I’ll try to come up with some stories,’ because it’s already been put out there in ‘The Dirt’ and Netflix about the Rainbow. And so I tried to come up with stuff that people haven’t heard. And I told the director, I said, ‘But I really shouldn’t be talking about this stuff because it’s pretty (filled with) debauchery.’ I mean, I told him a story about…
”The Whisky, there’s only one bathroom upstairs and three dressing rooms, and we could never get in the dang bathroom when we were playing with Van Halen because David Lee Roth made that his temporary sex office. When the door was locked, I’m, like, ‘David, come on, man. You’ve got four guys out here that need to pee.’ He’s, like, ‘I’ll be out in a minute.’ I’m, like, ‘Come on.'”
