I had a nice shoulder-length 'do until about 2000 when my "inferior genetics" (thanks Mom) took over and it was either cut it short or apply to Colonial Williamsburg to play Ben Franklin.  I keep it short these days but just can't quite bring myself to go "chrome dome" quite yet.  (I really, really miss my hair.)

Is Vaillant suffering from lady trouble?  If so, I feel for ya bro, 2 failed marriages under my belt and at 40 it isn't exactly getting easier to find Miss Right.  Had a fantastic date with a great gal about 2 weeks ago, one of the best dates I think I've ever had, was really crazy about her but she let me know on no uncertain terms she didn't have those kind of feelings for me.  So I can relate.  I still search against all odds for Miss Right.  Love sucks sometimes......(oh well, we were 200 miles apart anyway.  Long-distance never seems to work for me.)

You're right. There's only one life... gotta live it up, right?

Ha !  Got the same "hair affliction" myself.  If nothing else, after having it halfway down my back, it's so much less trouble !

It's best to let little things like that go Vail. Life's short, and she won't always be there. One day you may find youself looking back, and when you do...be thankful that she even listened, or read something that means so much to you. That's one way to make it a positive instead of a negative for you. Maybe you won't get so mad next time as a result, and may even see the humor, or whatever it is from her point of view. Most important is that you do have moments with her like that, which will build up memories. Some people don't even have that.

No worries, DC.  Actually I was only poking mild fun, I thought Rob actually looked really cool with his mullet, although I think I liked him best with the British Steel "Living After Midnight" shoulder-length 'do (a style I emulated myself for a while in high school).  I suffer Rob's same affliction these days but haven't broken down and shaved it all off yet.......did I mention I'm not only the Hair Club President I'm also a member!!!???

Don't worry about Dokken.  I have found in the metal world you either love 'em or hate 'em.  I will say for the record that out of all the "hair bands" (Poison, Warrant, etc.), I found Dokken to be more concerned with the actual music they were playing and not how much lipstick and hairspray you had on.

The songs weren't the greatest when compared to Priest or Queensryche, but the guitar playing and that nasty violent sound George got just captured me.

You're gonna lose me talking about Dokken. Never got into them, and Rob's mullet was one of his best hairstyles IMO, but don't let my opinions discourage you from continuing. I respect anyones opinion, and you'll just have to excuse my ignorance about Dokken.

True it was Don's baby, but Don got his deal in Germany and had to actually get a talented band to keep it.  He really should have been more open to the band's input as Don's ideas got pretty dated quick.

Yeah, although I sometimes get too worked up and get mad if she makes fun of something important during a song (lyrically, most of the time). Its a little flaw of mine I still need to work on.

I don't know if you've had the chance to listen to the latest Dokken CD which was released last month.  It's called "Lightning Strikes Again" and it's fucking incredible.  Dokken back and firing on all cylinders.  I must have listened to it 100 times and it sounds just like they did 20 years ago.  Lynch isn't in the lineup anymore (too many pissing contests with Don, I suspect) but their current axe man can play just like Lynch and the riffs will bring him to mind.  I imagine that's an easier thing to do than replace Don, but then again this band was always Don's baby.  Oh those rock star egos.  What is one to do???

Vaillant already knows my story of Priest with Don Dokken opening that I caught on the Painkiller tour in Alaska in 1991.  I think Priest/Ryche 3 years ago is about the closest one to that.  Another spectacular concert. 

My "live baptism of Priest" was during the Turbo tour in Tacoma, WA, 1986 (Rob with a mullet, hahaha)  The opener:  Dokken.

Oh shit, if you're bringin' the mighty George Lynch ( aka THE MAN ) into the convo, you're never too late.

Hey Vaillant and DC, I wondered if it's too late for me to jump into this discussion regarding the Mighty Ryche which is in my top 3 metal favorites (Dokken in a head-on tie with Priest always, always being #1).  I was born in Seattle and so grew up with Queensryche.  Matter of fact I got to see Geoff and Co. open for Priest in Vancouver WA during the AOR tour in 2005.  What a show!!!!   Also can relate to parents not relating to my love of metal.  My dad (now passed on) once declared that I would "outgrow" Priest and metal by the time I was 20.  I'm 40 now.  I love Priest and metal more than ever.
[TIMBONI] Sunday, June 22, 2008 12:48:52 AM 
I just wish I could have seen that.  I may not even be able to catch this Priest tour.  Money is tight and business is down.  We are just circling the wagons and trying to ride it out.

Geoff Tate was always my 2nd favorite heavy metal vocalist for that very reason. That's why see Queensryche open for Judas Priest last tour was soooooo special to me. 

It brought me to a memory I had with my favorite teacher. He had seen Led Zeppelin open for the Who. I was envious at the time, and have since dismissed such feelings from my life. However, I have now had what I believe to be an equal experience as a result!

I do that sometimes too, making fun of little quirks in the music she hears. We do that to each other every once in a while as our strange way of bonding.

Yes, and dare I say, one of the only vocalists to actually approach Rob's range and abilities.

Good advice my friend.  No reason to drift apart without a real reason.  She may have thought she was being funny.  Unfortunately, it may have just been bad timing is all.
