I had the pleasure of attending the
Scorpions , Whitesnake , & Dokken show the other night in San Jose . Here is my review of the show .
Dokken was the opening band , they were just
Don's voice is "Gone", his stage presence was bad. He seemed like, he didn't give a
damn up there on stage .
Their new bass player looks like C.C. DeVille
from Poison .
The background vocals were terrible !!!
I think its about time that Don Dokken quits
performing & putting out cd's .
He should just produce in the recording studio.
Whitesnake was the support band , & they were "Awesome", "Incredible" !!!
Coverdale has not lost a step at all !!
Coverdale had the crowd going with his great stage presence, & personality.
Whitesnake lead guitarist Doug Aldrich was just simply "incredible" !!
He was Shredding , & i mean Shredding !!
(Adrian who ? , Vivian who ?)
Whitesnake drummer Tommy Aldridge was simply
"Amazing" !! Tommy sures know how to POUND
those drums !!!
Again, simply an AWESOME performance by
Scorpions the headlining band, were good BUT,
it looked like to me that their age is starting to show now .
The energy was not their , like it was this past summer when i saw them in Reno ,& Concord !!
They have been out on the road touring
(basically non stop ) since June 1st of 2002.
Don't get me wrong, the Scorpions were good
they put on a good show but , the energy was just not there like it was earlier on their
2002-2003 tour .
My suggestion is , after the Scorpions tour is completed , they should just take a year off , put out a new cd w/ new material early next year & not tour until maybe late summer of 2004.
They need a well deserved rest.
Remember, these guys are in their 50's,& they're still doing all of this touring !!
