On April 6, 1985, DOKKEN performed their hits ‘Just Got Lucky’ and ‘Alone Again’ on American Bandstand. Bassist Jeff Pilson shared his memories…
 
“I remember the day well. We’d just played with Triumph the night before in San Diego, and had to play AB at 9:00 AM. Back then that was extremely early for all of us.”
 
“Anyways I remember Don decided to try a new outfit that day- we called it the pirate outfit. Wow- turned out to be not such a great idea! Poor guy- got ribbed to death on that one. At least he tried doing something new, but what an embarrassment (like all the other outfits from that era weren’t!!). George looked cool in it (I do have a copy and showed my wife a couple years ago so the memory is fairly fresh).”
 
“Other than that Mick saved the day by saying the highlight of his career was meeting Gladys Knight (who was also on the show) after George inadvertently dissed Detroit by saying it was the low point on the tour. Of course what he had meant was the hotel room he and I had shared that had blood stains and stab marks in one of the beds!! But all in all a very cool experience!”
