Poison Onstage Breakup?
KNAC reports: The gossip boards at Metal Sludge are on fire after last night's Poison concert in Atlanta. Here's are some samples: "Don't know what started it, but right before the encore Bret (Michaels, vocalist) and Bobby (Dall, bassist) appeared to be in a heated discussion and next thing ya know, Bobby slings his bass at Bret. Rikki (Rockett, drummer) and the roadies had to come in and separate them. Bret then went on to apologize and say how we may have just witnessed the last Poison concert ever. Bobby later came out and finished the song... guess to give the fans what they paid for." 

Another fan in attendance issued this commentary: " …Bret comes out and apologizes to the fans. He said, 'that s*** has been building up for 20 years.' He then explained, 'We are like brothers, and sometimes brothers want to knock the f*** out of each other.' He apologized for not finishing the show with 'Talk Dirty To Me' and then said, 'Atlanta, you may very well have seen the last concert by Poison in its current formation.'
