Guitarist Ira Black (I AM MORBID, METAL CHURCH, LIZZY BORDEN, WESTFIELD MASSACRE) was recruited by Dokken to fill in for Jon Levin for the November and December tour dates. While some rumors were circulating that Levin was leaving Dokken, that’s just not true. Levin is also an Attorney and All That Shreds confirmed with Jon that he has trial dates for the rest of the year requiring Dokken to choose Black to fill in for the remainder of the year.
Levin told All That Shreds in a previous interview that Dokken will be going into the studio next year to record a new record that should Dokken is supposed to be going back in the studio next year and record a new record that’s going to sound like Dokken’s earlier albums.
We wish Jon the best of luck in his court proceedings and look forward to seeing him rejoin Dokken afterward!
