On September 24, 1989 Terry R. Wickham directed a music video to capture ¬†his frustration of his favorite band Dokken breaking up. ¬†Terry says, “I wasn’t quite as distraught as the girl in my video but I had to heighten it a bit to make it more dramatic.”

Terry called on his then wife’s (Madison Di Loren) niece Doria Simeone to play the devoted fan.

Doria Sieone smiles in the dilapidated building located under the Roslyn Viaduct.  The video was Doria's acting debut and she did a fine job conveying the emotions of a distraught Dokken fan.

Madison Di Loren is Doria's Aunt.  Madison served as her acting coach and Terry's Assistant Director.  Kenny takes a unique position to get a high shot in run-down building under the Roslyn Viaduct.

Doria let's her Dokken album fly to release her frustration of the band breaking up.  This was in the neglected structure under Roslyn Viaduct.
