Happy Birthday today (Nov. 2) to bassist Bobby Dall of Poison. He's 55.
Poison had great success in the mid 1980’s through the 1990’s selling over 50 million records worldwide with 15 million alone sold in the Unites States. The classic lineup features Bret Michaels on vocals, Bobby Dall on bass, C.C. Deville on guitar, and Rikki Rockett on drums. The band released their breakthrough, multi-platinum debut album Look What the Cat Dragged In back in 1986 and hit their peak with the album Open Up and Say… Ahh! in 1988. The album was the band’s most successful release with four hit singles: "Nothin’ but a Good Tim", "You’re Mama Don’t Dance", "Fallen Angel", and "Every Rose Has It’s Thorn". It Peaked at number 2 on the Billboard 200 in the U.S. and sold 5 million copies. I've been a lifelong Poison fan, and remember picking up the debut album Look What the Cat Dragged In when it came out. I've seen the band in concert many times over the years and they always put on a fun, rockin live show. Cheers to Bobby Dall on his birthday today!
