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!

Poison – Unskinny Bop

Posted in 1990, Poison on December 17, 2006 by pelicancup

While the new grunge rock coming out of Seattle was just getting started, the rest of the country was still right in the middle of the Glam Rock invasion. In 1990, Poison released their third album, Flesh & Blood, which contained these three gold singles: Ride the Wind, Something to Believe In and this song, Unskinny Bop. This video was classic Poison. 1990 was a great year for the band, and they, like so many other 80’s hair bands, had no idea that the ride they were on was about to be completely over in a few short years. Enjoy the video!
