POISON singer Bret Michaels has told The Arizona Republic that he’s looking forward to touring with MÖTLEY CRÜE and THE NEW YORK DOLLS, despite derogatory comments from the Crüe.

Says Michaels: “There was a lot of controversy between Mötley Crüe and Poison, just some comments they had made about how ‘We're not gonna do that kind of tour.' I had said something on stage, like ‘Wouldn’t it be awesome if for Poison’s 25th Anniversary and Mötley Crüe’s 30th, for there to be a tour we did together?’ And a couple of the members of their band made some pretty derogatory comments. I just said, ‘The hell with it. I’m gonna do my own tour.’ Then, Nikki (Sixx) said, ‘I’m really sorry about some of the comments some of the members made. I really want to do this.’ So I think it’s gonna be a great tour.”

When asked if the members of Poison are still getting along after all these years, Michaels responded: "You couldn’t put four more different people in a room and try to make a band, so when that chemistry is on and it works, it’s unbelievably great. There’s just this fire and this energy. And when it goes bad, it goes horribly bad. We’ve had knock-down drag-out fistfights on stage. But now? Today? Even though we still have four completely different personalities, I think we’re getting along a lot better.”
