Biography

There are at least 6 bands with the name Poison:

1) A glam metal band from the USA.
2) A German death/thrash metal band.
3) A Japanese hardcore punk band.
4) An American heavy/speed metal band.
5) An American funk group.
6) A Finnish band.

1) Poison is a glam metal band from Los Angeles. Formed by drummer Rikki Rockett and singer Bret Michaels. they started out in Pennsylvania in the early 80s. Their first band together was called the Spectres. They left the Spectres and started Paris with bassist Bobby Dall. They then moved to Los Angeles, where they parted ways with guitarist Matt Smith. Many people tried out for Poison’s vacant lead guitar spot, including soon-to-be Guns N’ Roses lead axeman Slash.

After hiring C.C. DeVille, they changed their name to the more edgy ‘’Poison’’ and started working their way up the L.A. Club scene. In 1986 they recorded their debut album ‘’Look What the Cat Dragged In’‘, which was made succesful by their massive hit ‘’Talk Dirty to Me’‘, whose video was played on a constant rotation on MTV. Poison’s next album, the fan favorite ‘’Open Up and Say… AH!’’ was carried on the shoulders of the chart topping ballad ‘’Every Rose Has Its Thorn’‘, written by Bret Michaels about his girlfriend cheating on him with Quiet Riot frontman Kevin DuBrow. Poison’s third album, Flesh & Blood, showed Poison’s more mainstream side. After Flesh & Blood came out, Poison started going downhill. C.C. DeVille was in a constant drug binge and couldn’t be found.

    C.C. DeVille, better than Slash! My opinion.

    "Into the Abyss" is awesome. Riff-based songs like an ancestor of Immortal. "Sons of Evil" is completely unlistenable crap and played way too sloppy. The other demos "Bestial Death" and "Awakening of the Dead" are better than "Sons of Evil". It's rare that I see such a steep progression from the worst crap to awesome metal.

    I absolutely LOVE those bands that can't be more different, but have the same name. There's nothing more fun to do when you're having a bad day, than come to one of those bands last.fm page.

    The odd thing of it all is: I don't know any homosexual who listens to Poison, and I know some homosexual people. And, from all the Poison fans I know, all of them have far more sex than the average "TRVE". But hey, everybody together, screaming like retards "Poison are for fags"
