Right now, many bands are starting to announce their summer touring schedule. One of the regular names absent from the list is Poison, and a recent tweet from drummer Rikki Rockett gives a clue as to why they might not hit the road.
Poison frontman Bret Michaels escaped serious injury after a scary highway incident in which his tour bus slammed into a group of deer. He was en route from Abilene, Texas, to Biloxi, Mississippi at the time.
Suffering a brain hemorrhage is probably one of the more terrifying experiences a person can go through. For Poison's Bret Michaels, that terror was compounded by a fear of getting caught watching softcore porn when the EMTs showed up to save his life.
The four painted faces of Poison's Bret Michaels, Bobby Dall, C.C. DeVille and Rikki Rockett made their debut in 1986 on ‘Look What the Cat Dragged In,’ but it was the band's 1988 follow-up LP that sealed their fate. Twenty-five years ago today, ‘Open Up and Say … Ahh!’ was released, crowning Poison the kings of rock's glam revival.
We're going on 11 years since Poison released a collection of all-new original material, which is probably kind of upsetting for some people. But frontman Bret Michaels is here to offer a little relief to those long-suffering fans in the form of his new single, 'You Know You Want It.'
Bret Michaels of Poison will look to become the first ever two-time winner of 'Celebrity Apprentice,' the CBS show that pits famous people against each other in business-minded tasks. Twisted Sister rocker Dee Snider will also join a cast of 14 contestants when they begin filming the 2013 season on Monday.
Could you imagine how different Poison would sound if Slash was their guitarist? Or how the former Guns N' Roses star would look with poofy hair and tons of makeup? Well, the top-hatted one did in fact try out for the job, and as you might expect it wasn't a perfect match.
As Poison hit the stage at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, Mass. last night (Aug. 18) on their tour with Def Leppard and Lita Ford, the first thing frontman Bret Michaels did was express his gratitude. He addressed the crowd to thank them for over 26 years of loyalty to the band.
After a break of nearly three weeks, Lita Ford is looking forward to getting back out on the road. In a new interview, Ford talks about what it was like being on the road for much of June and July on the 'Rock of Ages' Tour with Def Leppard and Poison.
