Don't know if there is any merit to this or not, but it's news so we run with it. Poison is being sued by a band that claims some songs or song ideas were stolen for the Look What The Cat Dragged In album. Read the full story… Continue

The guy got whacked pretty hard. As Big C humorously alluded to earlier in the week, it's a surprise his wig didn't come flying off. I joke because I genuinely like Michaels and like Poison. Have for years.…

but not in the way you probably think. Poison was performing at the Tony awards and as they were leaving the stage you can distinctly see Bret get clotheslined by a falling stage prop. It's funny shit, check out the video… Continue

it's Captain Morgan night at the Glocktower, it's the second day of a torturous work week, it's the day of the week CrazyFromTheHeat takes a bath, and most important of all, it's......Which Song Rocked Harder! Yep, we're there again. This time, one from a newcomer and a newcomer from an old hand. The newcomer is EndeverafteR and their tune Baby, Baby, Baby. These guys are known for having the true rough edge of the old sleaze cut with some really good ballads. The sky's the limit for these… Continue

I was thinking about this last night - -what do you guys think "THE" representative/flagship/quintessential party metal song. In other words, what one song says "hair metal."
There may be more than one great answer. I think a good candidate is Nuthin' But a Good Time by Poison. It can even be a song you don't like. For example, I don't care for KISS, but I think a good candidate would be Rock & Roll All Night.
How 'bout you, Angels? What song would you put in a time… Continue

I was listening to GNR this morning, and Rocket Queen came on. That is by far my favorite song by GNR. That got me thinking about favorite songs from other metal artists. Let's see if we can get some discussion going today -- what is your favorite song from:
Guns N Roses

on what's under the bandana. It seems a reporter from a Dallas newspaper finally asked about the hair, and was told it was a combination of real hair and "the best real hair extensions that Europe has to offer".....some things are better left unknown I guess. There is a full copy of the article… Continue

talking today about the first concert we went to. What was the best? If it's up to me (and I'm sure it's the same for you) it might be too hard to define. If you can't pick the best concert, what was the best experience you've had at one? This should be good. Let me hear from ya Angels.

sometimes you just have to thank God and metal for good friends. I was looking to clean out and consolidate things in my bedroom closet last night, and I came across a small satchel that still had airline tags attached to it from a plane flight I took a couple of years ago. I picked it up, and realized there were dozens of cassette tapes inside. I don't have a tape player at home, so the gift I received from SlamThunderHide was forgotten. It shouldn't have been. I looked across those tapes last… Continue

I believe we briefly discussed this a long time ago on MFA, but that was before most of our current members were with us, so I'm bringing it up again.
It's the phenomenon that I believe can only be found in hair metal - -and I call it the "missle woosh." It's hard to describe, but it's that "whoosing" noise associated with the drums at certain parts of a song (and only on select songs).
Up All Night by Slaughter was just on and I noticed it. I also remember hearing it in In My… Continue

and I mean FAVE from our bands? I look across all of our new members (hey oldies but goodies--Daveo, Jason, Renee, Alicia, Tommy, Ditmer, Chris, Andy etc.--did you ever think we'd be hanging with this many metalheads?) and all of the new bands, It makes me wonder who everyone's favorite band is. I know my buddies' favorite bands, they've been that way all their life. There were times in my life when I couldn't get enough Maiden. When the only album I listened to for 3 straight months was 5150.… Continue

Wow. Apparently Rockett was served with a "strong arm rape" warrant out of Mississippi when he stepped off of a plane in L.A. yesterday. No further details were released.
Man...if our rockers keep this shit up MFA is going to look like a police blotter.

Today we are going to feature a band that will be on the Rocklahoma lineup in 2008. Vains of Jenna is no stranger to the spotlight, having filled in for White Lion on Poison's tour last year. I had never heard much of these guys, but after checking them out this morning can certainly report to you that they are a classic, straight ahead sleaze rock band. The band is all Swedish, and are produced by Bam Margera of Jackass fame. The music is good, if… Continue

If you live in America (and maybe even overseas like our good friend the Reckster), you have no doubt heard the endless talk this week of the New England Patriots and their upcoming attempt to become the first ever 19-0 football team. They are being called the best team in the history of football.
That got me thinking -- who do you think the perfect hair metal band is? Is there one that you would consider the New England Patriots of hair metal? Or is it too close to call?

...one of the few who is truly happy that Triumph is playing, had
a good old time posting the other day about how 1980s-era Poison was very "gay,"
and that Triumph, by way of comparison, was ultra-manly, studly,
heterosexual, noncocksucking, etc. He also alleged that few men bought
the records of either Poison or Motley Crue -- that it was all women
who bought them. And, by implication, some very, very… Continue

Just kinda wondering what everyone's plans were. I've had several people email me off the site and leave comments saying they re-upped their tickets and/or campsites, but does anyone have any specifics on where they are gonna sit or where they are gonna camp? Joe, Slam, Crazy From The Heat and I are renting an RV to go in style this year (style for guys like us is indoor plumbing) and we really want to meet as many of you as we can. We'll have booze (because Slam and I will be there), chicks… Continue
