Alan Sculley of The Morning Call recently conducted an interview with Bret Michaels. On being against the making of POISON's 2007 album of cover tunes, "Poison'd":
"I literally gave in to the band. They had wanted to do a cover record, and I got outvoted and I lived with it. But I was a man and I stood up there and I took it and I did the best performances I could. I said 'Guys, didn't we get into this to make our own music?' And no offense, I love doing one cover song on an album. I don't want to do albums of cover material. No offense, but I got into this to write music. That's what I do."
