Dokken: "Dream Warriors" (Acoustic)

I'm in a Dokken mood and wanted to share this. Here's an acoustic performance of one of my favorite Dokken songs, "Dream Warriors," written for the soundtrack of A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors. I believe this particular performance is taken from the band's Japan Live '95 DVD, which features the original group, reunited after having gone their separate ways for a few years I love this song, but I think I love it even more in this stripped down interpretation where the melodies can really shine. Plus, check out those outstanding harmonies from bassist Jeff Pilson! This is one that Don still occasionally performs acoustically at some of his shows.

Chuck Berry: "Big Boys"

In the wake of Chuck Berry's passing, the Berry Family and Dualtone Records have released "Big Boys," the first single from his final studio album. Long in development and announced last October, Chuck will finally be released on June 16. I can't wait.

This music sounds fantastic, as if no time has passed since he first burst onto the scene in the fifties. I had wondered what rock and roll must sound like at the age of 90, and this is the answer: it sounds like Chuck Berry.

Preorder Chuck from Dualtone Records HERE.
