Becko of Australia's Triple M radio station recently asked POISON singer Bret Michaels about his band's feud in the 198os with Axl Rose and GUNS N' ROSES and whether it has continued to this day."Let me be very straight with that," Bret replied. "That was more of a feud in the media than it was in real life. "GUNS N' ROSES, MTLEY CRE and POISON were rock bands that were really passionate about what they did. Without a doubt there's a certain amount of competition. You wanna go out there and put on the best show but that friendly competition is good. "It helped to sell records back then. GUNS N' ROSES and POISON were touring, doing the same stadiums and both record labels Capitol and Geffen they'd go back and forth with these big publicity releases and then I would see the guys, I'd go to their shows and hang out with them and I'm thinking 'in the media we're fighting but in the real world we're friends.' 'Appetite For Destruction' is one of my Top 10 ever favorite records."
