POISON COMMENT ON FRIDAY NIGHT'S BIFFO:
An official statement from Poison regarding last weekend's "incident":
"Atlanta's still burning...it was striking hot on stage the other night when Poison's show ended in a volatile fight...on stage.
Bassist Bobby Dall and singer Bret Michaels went at each last Friday night (August 25) right before the encore, with Bret throwing his mic at Bobby, and Bobby retaliating by slamming his bass into Bret, injuring Bret's knee.
This is not the first physical incident between the band members. There have been many over the years, but this is the first onstage since the famous fistfight between Bret and C.C. at the MTV Video Awards in 1991, but that took place after the performance, not during.
Even though Poison's current release, The Best Of Poison 20 Years Of Rock, has been on Billboard's Top 200 chart for more than 20 weeks (and is going full steam ahead to be certified gold), and the concerts have attracted huge crowds all across the country, is this the end of Poison? Will the band break up after 20 years? Right now, it's day to day, as their intense summer tour is scheduled to end September 2.
