Don Dokken inició su carrera en la banda Airborn. Luego formó un grupo con su propio nombre junto a los músicos George Lynch y Mick Brown. En sus inicios se las apañaron para telonear a los Scorpions, banda con la que Don trabó amistad y para los que hizo coros en algunas canciones del álbum Blackout. La banda Dokken encontró pronto su tono propio gracias a la personalidad de Don y en su segundo album "Tooth and Nail" alcanzaron reconocimento unánime. La banda se separa en 1988 y Don grabó entonces su primer disco en solitario que era un disco de Dokken en todos los sentidos. Hubo un reencuentro posterior de la Banda Dokken en la que participaron miembros originales y también Reb Beach (Whitesnake), y John Norum (Europe).

Don Dokken gave his first steps into music with the group Airborn. Later he founded a band under his own name, Dokken, alongside with the musicians  George Lynch and Mick Brown. At their bginings they managed to opened concerts for Scorpions. Don became friends with the bembers od the german band, so much that he even collaborated with them in the album Blackout singing choruses. The band Dokken soon found their own sound thanks to Don's strong personality and so on their second album "Tooth and nile" the were broadly aknowledged. The band broke in 1988 and Don recorded his first solo allbum with an style very similar to his former project. Later on, there was a Dokken reborn with the original members and also with the performance of great musicians like Reb Beach (Whitesnake) an John Norum from Eurppe.
