Why Poison Picked C.C. Over Slash

One of the strangest "what if" stories in hard rock involves legendary former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash auditioning to join Poison.

Slash was between bands at the time he auditioned for the group, who ultimately gave the job to C.C. DeVille and now Poison frontman Bret Michaels discussed what happened in a new interview.

"Slash is one of my all-time favorite guitar players and I believe he would have steered our sound a little more in the Aerosmith direction. He was basically the same guy he is today. What you see is what you get. It never really had a chance to work out or not. The band decided C.C. (DeVille) was the best choice for us" Michaels tells Austin360.com.

Slash apparently agreed that C.C. was better fit as he discussed in this interview.
