Poison: Then

They may wear less lipstick than they used to, but glam-rock band Poison has shown surprising staying power. Formed in 1984 in Harrisburg, Penn., the band (pictured in 1990, from left to right, singer Bret Michaels, guitarist C. C. Deville, drummer Rikki Rockett and bassist Bobby Dall) topped the charts with hits like "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" (1988) and "Something to Believe In" (1990). Through ups and downs, the band has continued to tour and record together. Some credit for their enduring popularity goes to “VH1: A 1999 Behind the Music” special, DeVille's appearances on “The Surreal Life” and Michaels' “Rock of Love” franchise have kept their hits in steady rotation.
