When asked if he would be annoyed if Don Dokken and Michael Schenker ended up working together, Levin responded, "That's a really good question. When we were in Bulgaria three weeks ago or a month ago, we were really, really jetlagged. At 6am, I was sitting at a breakfast table with Herman Rarebell. There was nobody else around. We were just talking. Then Michael (Schenker) came in. I'm a huge, huge fan of Michael, and he's actually a big influence of mine. I think those influences are apparent on this album ('Boken Bones') as well. He came up to me and said, "We play an acoustical guitar tour together, you and me." I'm looking around like, "Who are you talking to. Me?" And he says, "Yeah, you and I play acoustic guitar together." I was like, "OK." Actually, Don was there, and Michael goes, "And you will sing." I actually didn't know that he was serious. Don thought he was serious. Sure enough, I got a letter from his lawyer a few days after I got home, and he said, "Michael is really excited about this, and can you have Don start working on some music with him," and so on and so forth. We will see."
"That would be a dream for me, because he's one of my favorite players," concludes Levin.
Dokken's new record Broken Bones will be released on September 25th. The Deluxe CD/DVD edition of the record will include a Making of the Album video.
