How Many Of You Were At This Poison Party?

Picture it: Los Angeles, 1990. Poison is on the Strip, celebrating their new album Flesh & Blood. Metalhead Video Magazine was there to capture all the fun. There's half-naked women, a Bret Michaels interview and many cameos of Glam superheroes including Jani Lane and Bill Gazzari. You can thank my sore (broken?) toe for this video find as well -- it popped up as a suggested clip after I watched that treasure trove of Glam I shared with you yesterday. Watch this video and pretend you were there for Poison's big album release... and if you really were there I want to know about it!

Great find. Am I wrong, didn't Mastery just pass away recently? If so, she is one of those unsung champions of the industry. MTV had a special for when Decline II came out that she hosted and I would love to find a copy of that. Vicky Hamilton needs to write a book. She must have stories for days.

It's been a while since Tawn passed away, Oct. 2007.
I went to this, but other that drinking, I don't remember too much other than it being just another night at the Palace. (now called "the Avalon". A great old theatre building directly across Vine Street from the Capitol Records tower.

Now, Warrant's "Cherry Pie" release party at the former Shark Club/Prince's Glam Slam, I remember that one! Best Party of 1990! Rare to see Bill Gazzarri out of his own club, or at the Rainbow trolling for "Miss Gazzarri Dancer" hopefuls.

What a way to Bring Back Glam! Just an awesome piece. Makes me wish I had the sense to have gone out there, even just on weekends, to live it the way Scott and Ace describe it.

I envy people who got to live through these things firsthand. Another great find!
