Some people might be surprised to find POISON and DEF LEPPARD on the same bill, after LEPPARD singer Joe Elliott was perceived as having made disparaging remarks about the glam metal band last year. But he told the Associated Press the controversy was blown out of proportion.
"The supposed fight that we had with POISON wasn't a fight at all. It was taken out of context by a foreign journalist," he said. "I've spoken with [POISON's] Bret Michaels, and he totally gets that it was taken totally out of context, and we don't have a problem with any of these guys, never have been."
