Poison May Move On Without Bret Michaels (Week in Review): Poison News

On Wednesday Poison May Move On Without Bret Michaels was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Poison drummer Rikki Rockett says Poison could move forward without frontman Bret Michaels. Rockett insisted last year there was no feud between himself and the singer. But he's recently been playing with his Poison bandmates Bobby Dall and C.C DeVille, with Brandon Gibbs from the sticksman's other outfit Devil City Angels on vocal duties.

He tells Sleaze Roxx:" When I was out touring with Devil City Angels, Bobby Dall came to one of the shows we played in Florida and jammed with us. He got the chance to get to know Brandon a little bit.

We got offered some shows that Bret either really wasn't interested in doing or if he had shows of his own scheduled - I can't recall exactly. In any event, Bobby and I looked at each other and said 'Why don't we just get Brandon to do them?'

"Now we'd never call it Poison but we did think it was good to offer the promoters a chance to work with the three of us with Brandon fronting the band. They took it - we did it and the response was amazing. It makes you really think. Is this something that we could do moving forward? I think we could."

Rockett reports he hasn't spoken to Michaels in months, and adds: "I just think that at this point in time he prefers to do his own thing. Bret has his own way of doing things and I'm getting the feeling that he'd prefer not to deal with the three of us if he can avoid it."
