About Up from the Ashes

Up from the Ashes is a 1990 hard rock album by Don Dokken, best known as the lead singer of Dokken. The sound of the album was similar to Dokken's work with his former band. The album did not quite achieve the commercial success achieved by Dokken, but it did reach the Top 50 on the Billboard 200 album chart in the US. The line-up for this album consisted of Don Dokken performing vocals, John Norum formerly of Europe on lead guitar, Billy White formerly of Watchtower on lead guitar, Peter Baltes formerly of Accept on bass, and Mikkey Dee formerly of King Diamond and pre-Motörhead on drums. The original drummer for the Don Dokken band was Hempo Hildén, formerly in John Norum´s band but he was replaced after a few photo sessions and does not play on the album. The music videos for the songs "Stay" and "Mirror Mirror" received airplay on MTV's Headbanger's Ball. "When Love Finds a Fool" was co-written with former Deep Purple and Black Sabbath singer Glenn Hughes, who also provided backing vocals for the song.
