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.
Apparently, one of the bass guitars that Jeff Pilson owned, a favorite 1985 Spector bass, went missing somewhere along the way -- and Jeff was bummed.
Not long after, a guy bought the bass in a store, after being told that it had been previously owned by Jeff Pilson, and sold. The guy used the bass for many years, playing all his gigs and recordings with it -- and eventually became friends with Pilson.
