Don Dokken came a knockin’ but David Lee was too busy knockin’ boots.
During a recent appearance on The Hook Rocks! podcast, Dokken revealed Netflix is currently “making a movie about Dokken from the ’80s” akin to Mötley Crüe’s 2019 Netflix biopic The Dirt. One story to make the film, according to Dokken, has to do with David Lee Roth getting busy in the bathroom at the legendary Los Angeles club the Whisky a Go Go.
“A couple months ago I went down and they wanted to film me at the Whisky where we started,” said Dokken. “And they just asked me questions…I told [the director] a story about … the Whisky, there’s only one bathroom upstairs and three dressing rooms, and we could never get in the dang bathroom when we were playing with Van Halen because David Lee Roth made that his temporary sex office. When the door was locked, I’m, like, ‘David, come on, man. You’ve got four guys out here that need to pee.’ He’s like, ‘I’ll be out in a minute.’ I’m like, ‘Come on.'”
Roth also made an appearance in Mötley Crüe’s book (2001) and movie version of The Dirt. In the film, he’s seen sitting on a couch snorting coke with a pretty lady next to him.
