When it comes to making a new album for one of rocks biggest selling bands, Poison bassist Bobby Dall has said he’d really like to do it, but the reality is, it would be “difficult” getting the time to get it done.
It’s been over a decade since the band recorded and released an album. 2007’s Poison’d was the last time fans could indulge, but drummer Rikki Rockett daid recently that new material in the future may be a possibility.
He said to the press: “I personally think we still have a lot of stories to tell. Because the music business has changed so much, I don’t know that you’d get a full record out of Poison, but I do believe that you will see new music at some point in some capacity.”
Bobby Dall was totally honest about new material from the band. He said recently that: “I’m not going to bullshit you and say there’s any in the process. Would I like there to be? Yes. But, it’s a matter of everyone having the time.” Adding: “Everybody in the band has other commitments. Some members have younger children than others. So between those two issues, it’s difficult and, you know, health issues as we get older.
“Should we be making a new record? Yes, definitely. But will it happen? I don’t know.”
