Poison Band Documentary Behind the Music (Music History)
Story of the incredible Rock Band of the 80s ”POISON”………
Poison is an American glam metal band that achieved great success from the second half of the 80’s to the first half of the 90’s. To date, it has sold more than 45 million albums worldwide, with 15 million in the US alone. The band has also posted ten singles in the Billboard Hot 100 Top 40, including six Top 10 singles and Hot 100 single “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.” In the 2000s, with the original formation back, the band found new popularity following the successful return tour in 1999. The band toured almost every year of the 2000s in stadiums and overcrowded arenas. Members of the band have already released several solo albums and starred in successful TV reality-shows. After 25 years, the band continues recording and touring.
Since their debut in 1986, they have released nine studio albums, four live albums, five compilations, and have already released 28 radio singles.
They’re some of the most iconic instruments from the rock ‘n’ roll era, played by some of the most artful and timeless musicians, and now they’re being given a stage all their own. Opening this week at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City is a new exhibition, “Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock & Roll,” featuring such rock relics as the guitars of Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Jimi Hendrix and Bruce Springsteen; Jerry Lee Lewis’ baby grand piano; and drum sets for The Beatles and The Who. Anthony Mason walks us through a treasure trove of musical history, and talks with musicians Steve Miller and Don Felder of The Eagles about what these instruments mean.
