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

The Birth Of Dokkenator


April 13, 2009

It was that wet Spring afternoon Dokkenator was created. Power came to him while listening to the Rolling Stone compilation “Headbanging Heroes of 80’s Metal”. This amazing CD featured 16 tracks from the following artists:

Poison, Twisted Sister, David Lee Roth, Warrant, Winger, RATT, Autograph, Skid Row, Cinderella, Kix, Vixen, Dokken, Enuff Z Enuff, L.A. Guns, Lita Ford & Quiet Riot.

Four of those artists signal the arrival of Dokkenator at his workplace. However, it was “In My Dreams” by Dokken which made him a household name. The vocals from Don Dokken, coupled with the 1-2 guitar combination of George Lynch & Jeff Pilson always succeed in firing him up. The entire workplace hears the following lyrics once the employee entrance opens:

Callin’ your name, but you’re turning away. Please don’t leave.
Running in circles waiting to see you in my dreams.
What can I say or do? You won’t come back we’re through.
I realized too late that baby your love has turned away
In my dreams it’s still the same, your love is strong it still remains
In my dreams you’re still by me, just the way it used to be.

It never fails to light his fire for an awesome shift. It also holds a special place in his heart. More on that in another chapter.
