There’s a ramp which takes Dokkenator into his workplace at Paradise Banquet Hall. Along that pathway is the outdoor wedding gardens. Nothing disrupts a ceremony faster than a blasting speaker bag & strong vocals. Nothing makes his workplace arrival better than hearing cheers while singing. The words “You rock” always make his night. Even better is when they approach your bar later & ask “Were you singing while walking up the ramp? You’ve got an amazing voice. Can you make an amazing drink?” The Dokkenator never fails to accept a challenge when it comes to making killer cocktails. Two Blue Fin Martinis won their approval.

Once this amazing track was heard on Sirius XM, it was definitely a playlist “Must Have”. The guitar work by George Lynch was fabulous…especially the opening riffs. The solo was amazing as well

Dokken – Burning Like a Flame
: Never thought our love would last
For so long
Time and time again
I thought that you would be gone
Still we kept love hanging on
I guess it’s meant to be
That your heart still belongs to me
And now we’ve stood the test of time
We survived
I asked for hope and a chance
You gave the key to your heart
You used to say that i’m not sincere
I’m gonna prove that you’re wrong
I’m never gonna leave your arms
Should’ve realized before
Your love’s worth waiting for
Don’t you know that
It’s our love that’s burning
Burning like a flame
And you know that
It’s out love that’s never gonna change
’cause every time i touch you
You just make me go insane
Don’t you know that
It’s our love that’s burning
Our love burning like a flame
Like a fantasy in the dark
You were gone
I couldn’t say the words
That you wanted to hear
But baby, now that i see the light
I feel it’s burning so bright
So let’s stop wasting all this time
Should’ve seen it all before
Our love’s worth waiting for
Don’t you know that
It’s our love that’s burning
Burning like a flame
And you know that
It’s out love that’s never gonna change
’cause every time i touch you
You just make me go insane
Don’t you know that
It’s our love that’s burning
Our love burning like a flame
Should’ve seen it all before
Your love’s worth waiting for
Don’t you know that
It’s our love that’s burning
Burning like a flame
And you know that
It’s out love that’s never gonna change
’cause every time i touch you
You just make me go insane
Don’t you know that
It’s our love that’s burning
Our love burning like a flame
Our love, never gonna change

Signing Out While Breaking The Chains


Another favor track from the Dokkenator is “Breaking The Chains” After hearing this track during the summer of 2010, it immediately become a playlist addition. Not to mention produced many hilarious moments. One of those occurred at his workplace on Mother’s Day 2011. https://youtu.be/AhDEOn5BrWc

After finishing work & a late lunch, Dokkenator was getting his stuff together to head home. It was while this track was playing Miriam looked over at several other coworkers. They included two captains, Bana & Gena, along with two other coworkers, Pacha & Ariana. Marie was talking with the women after George Lynch finished his guitar solo. Then the closing lyrics took over, causing Miriam and everyone else to take notice:

Woke up today
I’m alone
I looked around
But baby you were gone
But I don’t mind
And I don’t worry
I will survive

I’m alone
Now that you’re gone
Don’t need nobody
To hold or tie me down
I broke the chains
So let me be
I’ve gotta be free

Breaking the chains around me
Nobody else can bind me
Take a good look around me
Now I’m breaking the chains

Breaking the chains around me
Nobody else can bind me
Take a good look around me
Now I’m breaking the chains

Once the volume of Stanza 2 got higher, the laughs took over. Especially when they heard “I broke the chains, so let me be. I’ve gotta be free.” Marie, however, gave a look of disgust. It said “Okay….we get it. You’re finished & happy that you’re going home, but must you be that loud?” Just wave to the people, slide on the sunglasses & say “Good night”.
