Poison'd by A Bitter Pill of Hate
Poison is also on tour this summer. Their first gig: the appropriately named Bi-Lo Center.
You might be interested that Poison is performing in St. Louis on Thursday, August 2 (with Ratt) at
Riverport, UMB Bank Pavilion, Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre St. Louis, a venue better known as The Clear Channel Spin-Off That Charges $40 for a Coke-Cola and a Pretzel.
Speaking of over-priced hype, your local cable provider is charging you $65 a month for a bevy of entertainment options, including “Rock of Love With Bret Michaels,” a reality dating show premiering July 15 on VH1.
"It’s extremely over the top. A couple of the girls got in actual fights. There’s motorcycle racing and motorcycle wrecks. There’s full-contact lingerie mud football ... It’s crazy."
And finally, another musical legacy is reinterpreted for a new generation -- Pickin' on Kelly Clarkson: A Bluegrass Tribute.
This special tribute takes the boldest songs from Kelly’s catalog and marries them to the rich sounds and traditions of bluegrass. A seasoned bluegrass ensemble comprising banjo, guitar, fiddle, mandolin, dobro, and bass recreate some of Kelly’s greatest musical moments: “Since U Been Gone,” “Miss Independent,” and “Walk Away” are performed and transformed with incredible skill and ingenuity taking these songs to a new musical dimension.

Me rock in corner now...humming.
