Poison – 7 Days Over You (Live)

Posted in 1993 Songs, Arena Rock, Hair Bands, Hard Rock, Poison on December 9, 2008 by pelicancup

Poison just released a new DVD in August called Seven Days Live. It’s footage of a 1993 Poison concert from London’s Hammersmith Apollo on April, 23, 1993. It’s a rare look at Poison on their Native Tongue tour, which featured Richie Kotzen on guitar. While the show featured a lot of Poison’s hits from the 80’s, it also featured a lot of songs from the Native Tongue album. One of those songs was this one, 7 Days Over You.

It’s really a shame that Poison’s fan base had abandoned them for grunge bands like Pearl Jam and Nirvana during this time frame because musically, Native Tongue is one of Poison’s best albums. The songs are much more complex and Kotzen’s influence on guitar is unmistakable. He brought an element of blues mixed with heavy metal riffs that meshed really well with Bret’s vocals. It’s a shame Kotzen was kicked out of the band because they might still be recording new material with him. (But, you can’t blame them for kicking him out. He did sleep with Rikki Rockett’s fiance…)

Don’t get me wrong, I like Poison with C.C., but it’s no secret they were limited musically with C.C. on guitar. That’s why this DVD release is so cool because the majority of Poison fans never even listened to Native Tongue. Well, here’s your chance. Enjoy!

Poison – Ride The Wind

Posted in 1991, Arena Rock, Glam Rock, Hair Bands, Poison on July 12, 2007 by pelicancup

Poison was one hair band that was still enjoying success at the beginning of the 90’s, and they released Ride the Wind as a single in 1991. The video features footage from their concerts, which were absolutely a blast. Say what you will about their music being shallow and basic, but they put on one helluva great show, which is what we all go to a rock concert for in the first place….to be entertained, right? Frankly, I wish bands would get back to this concept and would quit trying to save the world with their music. Okay, enough of my soapbox. Enjoy the video!

Van Halen – Poundcake

Posted in #1 Mainstream Rock Charts, 1991, Arena Rock, Glam Rock, Sammy Hagar, Van Halen on June 18, 2007 by pelicancup

Poundcake is the opening track on Van Halen’s 1991 album, For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge. It reached #1 on the U.S. Mainstream Rock charts. The album was named For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge because Sammy was mis-informed by his good friend Boom Boom Mancini who told him that F*ck meant For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge. It doesn’t, but 1991 was when censorship was such a big deal, and Sammy wanted to make a statement. Enjoy the video!
