Tooth & Nail win
I saw this coming a fucking mile away.

Tooth and Nail — the new band featuring current and former members of Dokken — has been forced to shorten its name to T&N for legal reasons.

Legal reasons? The label, Tooth & Nail, likely sued them.

“We cannot keep [the name] as Tooth and Nail as there is a label that has it trademarked,” says the band in a statement. “[Fans] can still call us To$%h AND Na$l… We can’t.”

The band features guitarist George Lynch, bassist Jeff Pilson, and drummer Mick Brown.

T&N’s debut album is expected later in the year.

The CD will feature new original material as well as reworked versions of around five or six Dokken classics.
