I have no regrets, and this band has been blessed with so much success I never could experience what I have in Poison.
Rikki is quite the showman behind his kit and dedicated his drum solo to Vinnie Paul of Pantera who had passed away that morning.
Ending the night was Def Leppard. I had warned Kim and AJ prior that the last time I saw them they put on a great show, but Joe’s voice just wasn’t hitting it. I was hoping that since they took a week or so break that it would be enough to refresh his vocals. Well guess what? Something happened because he sounded fantastic.
The band’s sound draws influence from the sunset strip sound of the eighties with some early day GUNS ‘N’ ROSES and some MOTLEY CRUE and even a slight, slight hint of POISON, but where things get interesting is the inclusion of some obvious influence from some seventies rockers like AEROSMITH and NEW YORK DOLLS…
