Poison, Rapid City, SD

This is Brett Michaels of Poison on the "Ratt Poison" tour outdoors at the Central States Fairgrounds on July 11, 1987. I really enjoyed Poison's performance that afternoon, but Ratt was lackluster.

I showed this picture to Brett several years later and he asked where I shot it. I said Rapid City, and he said, "Oh yeah, we were opening for Ratt that day weren't we? Windy as heck as you can see by my hair." I was amazed he could remember something like that.

That's a painting of bassist Bobby Dall behind him. It was artwork based on their first album cover in front of the speaker stacks.
