Bret Michaels Says He Thinks “It’s Time” For Poison To Release “a New Song Or Two”
After announcing a tour with Def Leppard, Motley Crue and Joan Jett last week, Bret Michaels hinted at some new music from Poison.
When Michaels was recently asked if there was any plans for a new Poison album, he said, “I’m always working on brand new music, solo, and I think with Poison, it’s time for at least a new song or two. I would love that.”
Poison bassist Bobby Dall said last year, “I’m not going to bullshit you and say there’s any [new music] in the process [of being made]”. “Would I like there to be? Yes. But, it’s a matter of everyone having the time. Everybody in the band has other commitments. Some members have younger children than others. So between those two issues, it’s difficult, and, you know, [there are] health issues as we get older. Should we be making a new record? Yes, definitely. But will it happen? I don’t know.”
Poison drummer Rikki Rockett added in 2017 that fans don’t really want to hear new music from classic bands. “We could write the second coming of ‘Talk Dirty To Me’, and I don’t know if people wanna hear it or not, and that’s a frustrating thing; it really is,” he said. “Aerosmith was able to do it, but not everybody is. I mean, even the Rolling Stones have had problems with that in the last few years. So… I don’t know. But I do think it’s important to stay viable. For the ‘über fans,’ it’s always a really, really good thing. And that’s what you do it for — you do it for you, you do it for the real fans, the real true fans.”
