Jeffrey Steven "Jeff" Pilson (born January 19, 1959, Lake Forest, Illinois) is an American multi-instrumentalist best known for his stint in the heavy metal band Dokken. He was also a member of Dio for much of the 1990s and has been the bassist for Foreigner since 2004.
After the initial breakup of Dokken, Pilson formed his own group called Flesh & Blood in 1989, taking over lead vocal and rhythm guitar duties. After changing the name to War & Peace, Pilson released a total of four albums, starting with 1993's Time Capsule, utilizing different players and line-ups. Pilson went on to collaborate with War & Peace bassist Tommy Henriksen under the name Underground Moon choosing the pseudonym Dominic Moon for himself; the project's sole album was released in 2001 and re-issued in 2008.
Pilson reunited with his ex-Dokken bandmate, guitarist George Lynch, in a two-member group called Lynch/Pilson, releasing the album Wicked Underground in 2003. He has also worked as a session bassist with the band Wild Horses (not to be confused with the British band of the same name), guitarist Michael Lee Firkins, and MSG, among others.
In 2010, Pilson participated in a tribute album titled Mister Bolin’s Late Night Revival, a compilation of 17 previously unreleased tracks written by guitarist Tommy Bolin prior to his death in 1976. A percentage of the proceeds from this project will benefit the Jackson Recovery Centers.
Although he is known primarily for his work as a bass guitarist, Pilson also plays guitar, cello, and keyboards.
He is also a member of T & N, which consists of the classic Dokken lineup, minus Don Dokken.
