Poison Drummer Wants to Record New Material

 No new music…no band.  I can relate. Peter Hodgson reports…

Poison drummer Rikki Rockett says it’s time for the band to record new music, but in the meantime he’s thinking of forming a new band to satisfy his need for new material.

Speaking to Bravewords.com, Rockett said he found it annoying to be a ‘heritage’ act at a time when he was in the best musical shape of his life. “Here’s the thing that drives me crazy: we have learnt so much in our career… yet it amazes me that we are not putting all of those things together into an album,” Rockett said. “I know I’m a better player than I was even 10 years ago. I know everybody is better. Everybody has had more experiences… I can’t tell you how overdue a new record is.”

Poison hit the road with Mötley Crüe and the New York Dolls this summer, and Rockett says that if Poison don’t go into the studio after the tour he would like to form a straightforward rock band in the vein of Bad Company. “I love to stretch out and try new things, but I do know who I am and you’re not going to get a Rikki Rockett jazz record,” he said.
