Bret Michaels - Jammin' With Friends 2013

And it's good to see Bret Michaels jamming with his friends again. Poison and Bret Michaels were my best memories from the glam metal in late '80. Shame we won't get that classic atmosphere again. So, when an old song, sung again and recorded with a touchy title "Jammin' With Friends", now that will be hardly to refuse. More information on this record can be read in Wikipedia's article. Majority of them are Poison's classic hits, such as Nothin' But A Good Time, Talk Dirty to Me, Every Rose Has Its Thorn, and Unskinny Bop. These song proves that Poison indeed crafted for us a classic tunes, that easily rendered into different feel and styles. Bret Michaels voices are the pacifying force on this hordes of musicians. As soon as we listen his vocals it will bring back the memories. Bret Michaels did not done many 'bad boy' screaming anymore, Talk Dirty to Me is the further he go. Instead this album resembling the later Poison era, the Native Tongue era.

The list of musician involved show how good Bret Michael's circle of friends. From Phil Collen (Def Leppard) , Ace Frehley to Frank Hannon, Joe Perry and old buddy C.C.DeVille. The record also sampling Bret Michaels later works, such as in Go That Far and Party Rock Band, all sounds in updated hard rock post the grunge era. For a classic piano ballad we can listen to Fallen. Then we have the best track saved for last, Something to Believe In in acoustic guitar mode is one tune we will sing along for the sake of '80 memories. Come and join Bret Michael's friend in jamming session.
