George Lynch has expressed openness to reuniting with Dokken, but only under specific conditions.

In a recent interview with, Lynch discussed the possibility of rejoining Dokken:

“I would only come back if it was an equal split. We all worked equally hard. We all contributed equally. We’ve had plenty of offers, on the touring and recording level. And they’ve been pretty decent, substantial offers. But it always falls apart because one person in particular wants the lion’s share. And that’s not acceptable. So it probably will never happen.”

Lynch’s Previous Comments on a Dokken Reunion

Last year, Lynch shared similar sentiments during an interview with Total Rock, emphasizing his reluctance to reunite Dokken for the wrong reasons:

“I pretty much doubt it. Mick [Brown] has quit playing drums, sold his kit. He’s not a drummer anymore. His brother Steve, who’s very similar to him, does play with [me and former Dokken bassist Jeff Pilson] in The End Machine. Mick played on the first The End Machine record. We [use] Steve Brown now. So Steve Brown would be a natural fit for a Dokken reunion. But Jeff’s been in Foreigner for 14 years. I’ve got nine different bands. We’re all older guys.”

Lynch elaborated on the challenges of reuniting Dokken:

“And, really, to put a Dokken reunion together would be very, very difficult—politically, personally. And then we have to ask ourselves the honest question: would it just be a money grab, or would it be a great record; would it be a great bookend? We’ve got ‘Breaking The Chains’ and ‘Tooth And Nail’ and ‘Under Lock And Key’ and ‘Back For The Attack.’ Is it gonna hold up to that, or are we just too far past that? And the answer is I think that ship has sort of already left the harbor.”

Currently, the lineup of Dokken includes only Don Dokken from the original members, alongside Jon Levin on guitar, Chris McCarvill on bass, and Bill ‘BJ’ Zampa on drums. They released a new album, ‘Heaven Comes Down,’ last year.
