D'espairs Ray - Live in Los Angeles, CA, September, 2007 Review by Rick Damigella Music was the universal language one recent summer night in Los Angeles when the JRock revolution tour rolled into Los Angeles for two nights at the Wiltern Theater.

After that band was no more, Doro has continued by proving that she still has the same vocal power, but also by moving on in different directions as well.
