About Poison

Poison has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide on the strength of 10 singles that have reached the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100, including the smash No. 1 single "Every Rose Has Its Thorn."

Other classic Poison hits include "Talk Dirty To Me," "Nothin' But A Good Time," "Fallen Angel," "Your Momma Don't Dance," "Unskinny Bop" and "Something To Believe In."

Bret Michaels, Rikki Rockett and Bobby Dall started the band in the early 1980s in Harrisburg, Pa. They moved to Los Angeles in 1984 and recruited guitarist CC DeVille.

The band's national breakthrough came in 1986 with the release of its debut studio album, "Look What The Cat Dragged In," which soared to No. 3 on The Billboard 200. That was the first of three consecutive albums to chart in the top three of the Billboard chart between 1986 and 1990, along with "Open Up And Say ... Ahh!" (1988) and "Flesh And Blood" (1990).

They started a reunion tour in 1999 and have been on the road ever since.

The 2013 Indianapolis 500 is scheduled for noon Sunday, May 26.
