Dokken+group15

Heavy metal bands take no shit, rock hard, and are very intimidating….most of the time.  Back in the ’80s, record companies got massive big-hair boners for the bands in L.A.  Any ass clown that could play 3 chords, had long hair, or booked a gig at The Rainbow/Whiskey had a shot at making it big.  How very lame.  Because of this L.A. explosion, we had to suffer through many shitty bands, as well as the classic formula of “hit/ballad/hit”.
