    You can hate them, but faster Pussycat sounded nothing like Poison.
    Their sound was way more guttural and sleazy, where Poison was very upbeat and having a good time.
    Wake me when itís over, is such a killer album, imo.
    ThAt album has such a great opening with the tune: where thereís a whip, thereís a way.

    Enuff Znuff had a great guitar player in Derek Frigo.
    But Derek and Donnie were hardcore addicts.
    Donnie escaped barely.
    Derek did not.

    Seems like history may have repeated itself (assuming both Pete and Sam were telling the truth).

    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red

    I would say 0% chance Mike makes an appearance. Does that kind of thing even happen at Vegas residencies? I would think it would be the one place it wouldn't happen.

    Good point.

    I think those things are set-up & timed like clockwork.
    Basically, you do the show & only the show.

    I think Joe Perry said something to the effect of:
    What it lacks in spontanaeity, it makes up for in comfort, because you're
    not dealing with traveling and jet lag.

    that was just what I thought. something about them rubbed me wrong right from the start. Like I said earlier I never really listened to them. that was a long time ago, maybe I'm remembering it wrong.

    Listen to this tune, it kinda represents that whole album.
    Just a very sleazy, but cool, vibe.

    People hate Taime, but i dig his vocals within this band.
    I love the part around the 1:22 mark, "Flyyyyyy-iiiiiiiiii....."

    But FP was the kinda band that could give you a VD, just by listening to them.
    "Slip of the tongue," was about eating out a girl's ass.

    I can understand folks hating them or the name, but i still really like their first
    two albums (or cassettes, as it were).

    Izzy Stradlin guested with GNR during their 2012 residency.

    I bought Faster Pussycat's debut from the cassette cutout bin. Pretty bad. More like they saw how well Guns n' Roses was doing and tried to copy them, but Taime Downe was no Axl Rose with the lyrics. "Don't Change That Song." What kind of title or subject was that for a song? Their "House of Pain" or whatever it was called seemed like the beginning of the grunge/nu metal era; a whiny tune. They began and ended with "Bathroom Wall" in my mind.

    In their Metal Years interview that one guitar player looks like he's got one of those extra XXY chromosome things. Male, yet...female.
