Their third consecutive multi-platinum selling album was Flesh & Blood.

What happened to: Bret Michaels Rikki Rockett Bobby Dall C.C. DeVille, etc.

They have been active since its forming in 1983 in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. Poison promoted themselves up and made the rounds performing in the famous local clubs. During the 1980’s to 90’s, Poison’s manager negotiated a deal under which the West Hollywood club,  The Troubadour would pay for shows. At this time, Smith, who was about to become a father and was concerned about the band’s future, left the band to return home to Pennsylvania.  Although Michaels and Dall did not initially get along with him, the band eventually agreed that DeVille’s “fire” made him the best choice. In 2018, Poison headlined the “Nothing But A Good Time Tour” with special guests Cheap Trick and Pop Evil. The tour started May 18 and ended July 1.
