Ed Masley of The Arizona Republic recently conducted an interview with POISON singer Bret Michaels.
The Arizona Republic: Are you looking forward to the MÖTLEY CRÜE tour?
Bret: There was a lot of controversy between MÖTLEY CRÜE and POISON, just some comments they had made about how "We're not gonna do that kind of tour." I had said something on stage, like "Wouldn't it be awesome if for POISON's 25th anniversary and MÖTLEY CRÜE's 30th, for there to be a tour we did together?" And a couple of the members of their band made some pretty derogatory comments. I just said, "The hell with it. I'm gonna do my own tour." Then, Nikki [Sixx, MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist] said, "I'm really sorry about some of the comments some of the members made. I really want to do this." So I think it's gonna be a great tour.
