Yes, folks — it’s true. I love ass.
A lawyer for Poison has released a statement to the Hollywood Reporter on new claims that Poison stole fizzy lifting drinks…I mean, songs — including “Talk Dirty To Me.”
Mark D. Passin, Poison’s attorney, says the suit is “baseless” and totally without merit.
“Poison will vigorously defend against the baseless accusations alleged in the complaint,” the attorney says.
“Obviously, if the Poison songs that are the subject of the complaint infringed any songs written by Plaintiffs McCarthy and Stonich they would have filed their lawsuit over 20 years ago when Poison released the albums on which the songs are embodied,” Passin added. “It is unfortunate that success in the entertainment business often invites unmeritorious lawsuits.”
The suit was filed last week by members of Kid Rocker, a now disbanded group. The suit claims Poison stole Kid Rocker’s songs and turned them into four Poison tracks.
How were they stolen? C.C. DeVille auditioned for Kid Rocker in 1984, the suit clams. The band actually broke up later that same year.
