This interview was done when Dokken released the album Long Way Home in 2002. Don talks about recent changes in the line up: why original bassist Jeff Pilson left and his skepticism towards Jeff’s musical plans, that new bassist Barry Sparks is done playing with guitar heros, replacing Reb Beach with John Norum and that Mick Brown is in a lot of trouble.

    Stig is the founder and the president of Metal Express Radio, based out of Oslo, Norway. He has been around doing Metal radio since the mid-eighties. In fact, running Metal Express Radio takes almost all of his time. Is it worth it...? "Most times, yes," Stig says. "My philosophy is to try to give all Metal releases a fair chance to get promoted in one way or another. As you can imagine, it can be an arduous task to listen through about 20 albums every week! Still, I know we have the best METAL dedicated radio on this planet, and that is a reward in and of itself. I hope one day the whole Metal community can and will make listening to Metal Express Radio part of their daily rituals! Yeah, right..."
