Bret Michaels formed Poison in 1983 with drummer Rikki Rockett, bassist Bobby Dall, and lead guitarist C.C. DeVille. Poison was one of the biggest "glam rock" bands of the 1980s and found commercial success with their debut album Look What the Cat Dragged In and Open Up and Say... Ahh!

Some of Poison's biggest hits include "Talk Dirty to Me", "Unskinny Bop", "Nothin' but a Good Time", and "Every Rose Has Its Thorn".
