"Dokken" recorded three excellent studio albums on "Elektra", and "Back for the attack" made it to the thirteenth place in the US charts in December 1987.

Lynch engaged in the formation of a new project "Lynch mob", while Don Dokken signed a solo contract with "Geffen records" and released a CD "Up From The Ashes" in 1990. Pilson was initially led the team "War And Peace",but soon he began again to write compositions with Dokken. But the group still remained a large army of fans who waited patiently for the reunification of their favorite team, and seven years later their hopes dashed.
Already previously teamed up with Brown Lynch finally settled his differences with Don Dokken and rejoined the band in May 1994. Thus "Dokken" appeared in its original composition. The team released a "live" acoustic album "One live night" (recording of the concert in December 1994) , and recorded two studio albums rather dull " Dysfunctional " and "Shadow Life". Lynch again left the structure in November 1997 and was replaced Rebom Beecham (ex - "Winger"),whose guitar first appeared on the 1999 CD "Erase the slate".
