Throwback Concert: Poison at Lake Compounce 1988

Throwback Concert: Poison at Lake Compounce 1988

Happy Birthday Bobby Dall! The bassist for Poison turns 57 on November 2nd.

Today we take a trip back to 1988 when Poison came to Lake Compounce at perhaps the height of their popularity. Poison was out promoting their second studio album Open Up and Say…Ahh!, which included hit songs “Nothin’ but a Good Time” and “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.”  Joining Poison on the bill was Lita Ford and Britny Fox.

During the song “Back To The Rocking Horse,” an upset Bret Michaels paused the show due to technical difficulties. After it was fixed, the band returned to the stage and played on.
