Dokken / Schenker Team Up
The duo are putting together an album of acoustic performancesIn a new episode of the Dropping The Needle podcast Dokken revealed that he had been recording vocals for a new collaboration album with Michael Schenker.
He reveals that he has picked tracks from Schenker's three instrumental acoustic albums "Thank You, Vol. 1", "2" and "3" and is currently laying down vocals over them.
He told GlideMagazine.com "It's going to be fun. He's a great guy and he put out a few acoustic CDs. I saw him last month in Bulgaria and he says, 'Don, we've always been talking about doing an acoustic record.' And I said, 'Yeah.' So he gave me a couple of his albums that are just instrumental and I said, 'Why don't I take them home and see if I can write lyrics and sing over the songs?' And it's coming out really great. It's not rock; it's a kind of chill record."
Here's the interview with Dropping The Needle. You can hear the first fruits of the collaboration at about 16.30.
