POISON - It Must Be Summer... Page 3

Now which of these bands on the bill, Warrant, Enuff Znuff, Quiet Riot, are Poison friendly with and which are, well, not exactly pals?

"I think we had run-ins in the day with every band, only because that makes for good press. The fact of the matter is, I would be the first one to say 'I saw Axl wearing a dress' in the day, because I know that would be picked up and it would be all over the headlines. And whether it was true or not was second to the fact that 'oh my God, I was quoted in Rolling Stone as saying that.' You have to understand that there is a reason why we said the things we said. Usually if you can have a feud or if you can have a fight, it usually means both bands on both sides of the fight are going to be elevated. Lesser bands doing that to us would always happen. You know, I would always be trying to pick fights with Guns N' Roses or Van Halen, so we would be elevated into that thing. And the Warrants would try to pick a fight with us so they would be elevated into our thing. But honestly, ten years later, everyone is just trying to make a living."
