Rikki's Thoughts and Comments on the Status of Poison.

There seems to be a lot of confusion about what is going on with Poison these days. I still have faith that we will do some great things in the future. However, here is what I know and don't know:

1. No, Poison did not break up.

After all, why would we? We can do stuff as individuals anyway, so why go to the trouble to break-up?

2.Q: Are we going to do a record?

A: I don't know. That is to say, the last I heard from the guys, is that we were going to in October. Does that mean we are? No, not for sure. It means I am ready and I think Bret is. So, we'll see.

3. Q: Did C.C. quit?

A: No, but at the same time he never really re-joined Poison officially either. Meaning, we never signed a contract stating that he was back in and ready to work. But, he did verbally agree.

4. Q: Did C.C. start a new band?

A:I don't know. He hasn't called me. He wanted to do some recording with me, but the next I know, I'm hearing rumours and he hasn't called Bret back, so I doubt he'll call me either. But, I'll try anyway. I'll let you all know.

5.Please don't ask me about Bret's record and when it's coming out etc.

I don't know. We aren't connected at the hip. It's his business. I played on a couple of songs, but I have no say so in his other affairs besides Poison.

6. Q: Will Poison tour?

A: I don't know that either. If I can't predict a record, I can't predict a tour.

7. Q: Why haven't you done the damn Poison Web site.

A: Because I don't know what the hell is going on.

That's about it. Thanks for givin' a $&!# about us.
