Dokken was composed of founder Don Dokken on vocals, George Lynch on lead guitars, Juan Croucier on bass, and Mick Brown on drums. In 1983 Croucier left Dokken in order to form Ratt and was replaced by Jeff Pilson. Currently, Dokken and Brown remain from the original lineup. After several lineup changes on guitar, Dokken's attorney, Jon Levin, stepped in to fill the role. In 2001, Barry Sparks replaced Jeff Pilson on the bass guitar.
In 2008, Dokken returned to the music scene with their first studio album in four years titled Lightning Strikes Again. The album has been critically acclaimed and it gave the band a return to the charts when it debuted at #133 on the Billboard Top 200 and became their highest charting album since 1995. The album's success has been attributed to its sound which is very similar to the band's material in the 1980s.
