Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio – The mighty 80’s powerhouse house Poison , descended on Blossom Music Center last week on a warmer then usually summer night . The heat on stage however was much , much hotter and the audience could not have been more pleased. I knew with just the intro video that this night is one I was never going to forget and one for my musical history books.
I have seen and worked with Bret Michaels several times over the last few years and he always put on a stellar show however this was ever better .The brotherhood of Poison , and yes it is a brother hood ,let me make my case. If you have worked and lived together, toured the world and had ups and down and still survived you are brothers in every sense of the word. To see the brothers together on stage again is a moment I have waited years to see and I could not have been happier.
The night started out with ” Look What The Cat Dragged In ” and in a sense of irony it was fitting as it was where the band started from as it was a hit from their debut album. The next two hours were a blur of hits, guitar solos , smiles and bass and drum fills. ” Ride The Wind ” ,” Fallen Angel ” and ” Something to Believe In ” were some of the best versions I have witnessed.
I did something at this show I usually do not do , I was within close proximity to C.C. Deville and I communicated with him via hand jesters signaling that I had mad respect and love for the music and thank you for all you do . Not only did he acknowledge it , he thanked me for the comment . A true class act all the way .
If you have been living under a rock or are related to Rip Van Winkle the members of Poison are Bret Michaels on vocals acoustic guitars. Mr C.C. Deville on guitars, Mr Bobby Dall on bass guitar and Rikki Rockett on drums .
