Poison came on the music scene in 1983, which means I was somewhere around 6th grade. However, I didn't fully appreciate the group until my high school years. Although my family didn't have MTV my friends did and I would watch their videos when I could.

Even today I have a copy of their greatest hits in my car. I never saw them in concert but always wanted to and I will get just a little closer to that coming up this Thursday when Bret Michaels comes to the Lucky Mule Saloon. It won't be quite the same but close enough; and he always was the cutest member. I've been practicing my favorite tunes so I'll be able to sing along with Bret. I'm almost positive he will want me to come on stage, grab a mic and join him on 'Every Rose Has It's Thorn'. Yeah, pretty sure.

Although he has a solo career I sure hope Bret sings a few of these old tunes! These are a few of my favorite old skool Poison videos. Now, where did I put those leg warmers?
