Guns N' Roses and Poison Feud Wasn't Real

(hennemusic) Despite media hype, it turns out there was no bad blood between Poison and Guns N' Roses back in the 1980's heyday of hair metal, according to Bret Michaels. "Let me be very straight with that. That was more of a feud in the media than it was in real life," Bret tells Becko of Triple M Sydney.

"Guns N' Roses, Motley Crue and Poison were rock bands that were really passionate about what they did," continued Michaels. "Without a doubt there's a certain amount of competition. You wanna go out there and put on the best show but that friendly competition is good."

"It helped to sell records back then," Bret admitted. "Guns N' Roses and Poison were touring, doing the same stadiums and both record labels - Capitol and Geffen - they'd go back and forth with these big publicity releases and then I would see the guys, I'd go to their shows and hang out with them - and I'm thinking 'in the media we're fighting but in the real world we're friends.' "Appetite For Destruction" is one of my Top 10 ever favorite records." more on this story
