The album ultimately sold 4 million copies worldwide. The band began giving intimate and controversial interviews to rock journalist Judy Wieder at the Hollywood home they all shared in June , before the official release of Look What the Cat Dragged In. Wieder, the first to follow the band closely, circulated their many dicey conversations to the popular rock magazines of the day, including Circus , Creem , Rip Magazine , Rock Express and Hit Parader , ensuring enormous visibility for the album's release.
Poison's second album, Open Up and Say The album included the band's biggest hit, the No. The album's initial cover art was controversial, as it depicted a demonic female figure with an obscenely long tongue. A censored version of the cover followed, focusing on the figure's eyes. In , the band released their first video album titled Sight for Sore Ears which featured all their music videos from the first two albums. Conflict pursued the band persistently. Poison retaliated with charges of mismanagement of funds.
Michaels' frequent brawling garnered him further lawsuits in Atlanta , Los Angeles and Tallahassee. It also was highly successful, peaking at No. Shedding their big-haired image as they moved into the s, Poison took a more mature approach to their third album. This one's the one that's going to show that there's a little bit of another side to the band. Troops during Desert Storm, and their continued support of the Armed Forces. The album also features an alternative cover, as the original featured what appeared to be running ink or possibly blood from a tattoo.
Subsequent versions of this cover removed the "extra" ink. The record went multi-platinum, spawning three gold singles: " Unskinny Bop ", " Ride the Wind ", and the ballad " Something To Believe In " which was dedicated to the band's security guard and close friend James Kimo Maano who had died.
One of the band's few appearances in the UK was on August 18, at Donington's Monsters of Rock festival in the summer of Whitesnake and Aerosmith headlined with Poison, Quireboys and Thunder supporting them. This event was broadcast on BBC Radio 1. After two consecutive years on the road, band members were at each other's throats with personal differences and drug addictions.
The double album features live tracks from Poison's first three studio albums and four new studio tracks including the single " So Tell Me Why ", which were the last recorded before C. DeVille's departure from the band later that year. Despite Poison's success, DeVille's cocaine addiction had begun to cause strife in the band.
DeVille was fired and replaced by Pennsylvanian guitarist Richie Kotzen. Poison's fourth album, Native Tongue , was released February 8, It was strongly influenced by Kotzen's fresh songwriting contributions and guitar performance. It marked a change for the band as they abandoned their anthemic party tunes to focus on more serious subjects, and was far more blues-rock oriented than glam metal. Church Choir on backing vocals, " Until You Suffer Some Fire And Ice " and " Body Talk ", the album received generally positive reviews and did go Gold, but following the arrival of grunge sales were sluggish compared with the first three albums, selling only two million copies worldwide.
The band toured in support of the album, but tensions mounted between Kotzen and the rest of the band. Poison began recording its sixth album, Crack a Smile , in early Recording was brought to an abrupt halt in May , when Michaels was involved in a car accident where he lost control of his Ferrari. Michaels suffered a broken nose, ribs, jaw, and fingers and lost four teeth. After his recovery in , the band continued recording the album. The album became shelved shortly after this, with no release date anywhere in sight.
The first Greatest Hits album was released on November 26, and sold extremely well, going on to reach double platinum status. After several years apart, Michaels and DeVille were able to patch up their differences; and Michaels welcomed DeVille back into Poison in to replace Saraceno.
Michaels was involved with Pamela Anderson. After Poison's and Michaels' longtime attorney, Ed McPherson, obtained a Federal injunction prohibiting the distribution of an explicit sex tape that the couple made, an abridged version of the tape appeared on the internet in Michaels and actor friend Charlie Sheen co-founded a production company called Sheen Michaels Entertainment.
