Rikki Rockett – August 2012 Classic Rock Birthdays
Only the most dedicated fans of the glam rock band Poison can be expected to know the name Richard Allan Ream. But we all know this drummer by stage name -- Rikki Rockett. Wanna know his birthday, too? It's Aug. 8, and he'll turn 51.
Sitting comfortably as the drummer for Poison since the bands inception in 1983, Rockett has been a driving force for band's success. Nearly 30 years later, they are still doing their thing on the biggest stages around. Currently, that means going on tour with Def Leppard.
Rikki's success in music has allowed him the ability to explore further his other childhood passion, which is oddly but appropriately enough, rocketry.
