Rikki Rockett thinks Poison will release new music at some point but not sure about a full record
Poison drummer Rikki Rockett was recently interviewed by OC Weekly and spoke about the band putting out some new original material, which is something that the the glam rockers have not done since 2002’s Hollyweird.
Rockett stated: “I personally think we still have a lot of stories to tell… Because the music business has changed so much, I don’t know that you’d get a full record out of Poison, but I do believe that you will see new music at some point in some capacity.”
Still, Rockett acknowledges that he isn’t sure if new Poison songs could replicate the attitude and innocence of early material such as “I Want Action” and “Talk Dirty To Me”… Maybe we can’t write those songs [“I Want Action” and “Talk Dirty To Me”] anymore from that same perspective… We’re not that age anymore; we’re not in that same place anymore in life; but I think where we’re at is just as interesting, honestly.”
In terms of Poison‘s upcoming headline summer tour, Rockett opined: “If you’re a rock fan who wants to see this kind of high-energy, hooky, fun [music], we’re still your band… We’ve never let that go. It’s not like we changed, and all of a sudden we decided we wanted to be U2 and be political or save the world. We’re more interested in saving rock n’ roll, really. I think that’s why we’ve survived – we never gave up the core of who we are.”
