Bret Michaels would love for Poison to do updated “new” “Every Rose Has Its Thorn”…
Poison frontman Bret Michaels was recently interviewed by Billboard on the occasion of the release of his new solo single “Jorja Bleu” written for his daughter Jorja.
Billboard asked Michaels if there was any chance of new recorded music from Poison to which he replied: “I will never say never. I’d love to do it. Whether or not we will do it is yet to be seen. But I’d love to say yes. To come out with an updated, new “Nothin’ But a Good Time,” “Talk Dirty to Me” or “Every Rose Has Its Thorn,” I would love that. It’s no one’s fault it hasn’t happened. And if it does happen, that would be great.”
In terms of friction within Poison over the years that has been well documented, Michaels stated: “It comes with the territory. But let me add that when we argue, it’s an argument worth having. We don’t argue about the stuff that doesn’t matter. We argue about the stuff that does matter. And, you know, C.C. [DeVille] stills plays like there’s no PA system. He still thinks he’s in Blue Cheer or The Who. [Laughs.] I’m the singer but I’m also a guitar player. So I’ll be like, “C.C.! You can’t play that loud! I can’t sing over the top of that.” But you know, our band is completely live. There’s no Pro Tools going on. There’s very little in-ear. I still like the feel of the crowd and the monitors. But that’s what makes it great. That’s what makes a Poison show a great live experience.”
