BRET MICHAELS On POISON: 'When The Time Is Right, We Will Get Back Out There'

Even though POISON hasn't done any major touring since taking part in the 2012 "Rock Of Ages" trek with LITA FORD and DEF LEPPARD, frontman Bret Michaels says that a reunion is possible.

"When the time is right, we will get back out there, without a doubt," Bret tells Sun Herald.

POISON appeared at the 2013 Indy 500 Miller Lite Carb Day, but has otherwise been mostly playing private shows, including one in January 2015.

Michaels is continuing to focus on his solo career and last year released the video for "Girls On Bars", his rock-and-country-crossover track which was written with Grammy Award-winning songwriter Luke Laird.

POISON drummer Rikki Rockett has been critical of Michaels's decision to spend so much time nurturing his solo career. He said in a December 2015 interview: "I don't know that Bret wants to do another record with us. I think he'll do shows, I think he'll do maybe a tour."

He added: "POISON is my baby, you know what I mean? Thirty years. I don't wanna kill it off. But at the same time, it will get killed off if we don't do anything. It'll just automatically start to suffocate itself. And so, it's time to do something. This year is definitely decision time."

Rockett last year completed nine rounds of chemotherapy and seven weeks of radiation after being diagnosed with oral cancer in the summer.
