Bass Player Friend of Jeff Pilson’s Hides Stolen Guitar for 15 Years

Back in the '80s, Dokken was a huge band.

The group played all over the world to sold-out shows, and had super-huge hair.

The band's members stalked by hot chicks, and lived the rock star lifestyle. They also had a lot of cool guitars.
