P is for Poison

Poison is an American glam-metal band that started in the mid 1980s to mid 1990s.
The band consists of Rikki Rockett(drummer), Bobbi Dall(bass guitarist), Bret Michaels(lead vocalist), C.C. DeVille(lead guitar)

At the 1991 MTV Video Music Awards, DeVille's cocaine addiction caused him and Michaels to get into a fistfight backstage. He was fired and replaced by Richie Kotzen.

On March 28, 2008, Rikki Rockett was arrested on suspicion of rape in L.A. after leaving a flight from New Zealand. According to police reports, on Sept. 23, 2007, a woman in Mississippi said that he sexually assaulted a woman in his hotel room at the Silver Star Indian Casino and Hotel on a Choctaw Indian Reservation. And he was exonerated of all the charges because it was stated he was was not in Mississippi at the time of the rape and that a man named John Minskoff used the name Rikki Rockett before raping her.

In 20101, Michaels was on the show Celebrity Apprentice and he was the winner, beating out Holly Robinson Peete.
