This beef between Poison and Mötley Crüe is getting weak, man. Not that it wasn’t weak before, but now, it’s almost as weak as the game of golf I played this morning on what will be my only day off until…well, August. I shot like shit, folks. I sliced the ball into the woods twice, and played with my dad and two old-ass potheads who kept sneaking hits between holes. I was wishing they’d share, but they never offered me any. Fuckers.
Anyways, that’s Kate Upton, a girl I bang every other night in my dreams. I figured it was better to look at her than to have to look at Bret Michaels or Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx, who have been bickering back and forth since the tour between Poison and the Crüe was announced.
In a new interview, Bret says he’s close with Mötley Crüe’s Vince Neil, but “as far as Mötley and Poison, there hasn’t been much of a connection. This is the first time we’ve ever done a tour together. I know over the years that Mötley has a certain way they want to brand themselves or want themselves to be seen. With Poison, we just want to go out to play for fans and the people who show up.”
When they show up. “If there’s going to be a friendly competition as far as wanting to go out and put on a great show, absolutely. As far as saying anything bad about them, I just don’t. As far as getting along, I’m not around them enough to know or really care how they feel. Even if they like Poison or don’t like me, I’m playing to fans who show up. It doesn’t have to be a lovefest between our two bands. I don’t want the fans to be separated. Mötley fans are Poison fans are rock fans. Music is a universal language.”
So is love.
“Look, I’ve toured with Def Leppard, Lynryd Skynyrd, Alice In Chains, you name it, Kiss, and we’ve always had a great time,” says Bret. “I think the bottom line, Mötley probably made a couple bold statements in the press that were probably unnecessary, and I think the bottom line is, it all came around to us going out and playing to a lot of fans, and I think it will be the tour of the summer. I know I’m going out there to have a good time after all I’ve been through.”
The tour of the summer? Yeah, if you wear Depends.
