The band, which became very popular throughout the 80s, also earned a nomination at Grammy Awards for the Best Metal Performance in 1990. Although the band was enjoying popularity and success in the market, the band members parted in 1989, due largely to misunderstandings with the lead vocalist of the band, Don Dokken.
