Who Is the Average Dokken Fan?

Dokken has been around for 30 years, but I'm actually one of those rare birds that just picked them up five years ago.

Something tells me that none of them had any idea who Dokken is, but I could be wrong...

Challenge #2: Taking my dog, Atticus.

Actually, Atticus is a good dog on a road trip, but the forecast indicated that it was going to get into the 90s. I wanted to leave early in the …
