A lot of people were somewhat surprised to hear that Def Leppard and Poison would be touring this summer since it seemed the two bands were fighting with each other last year.   However, Poison drummer Rikki Rockett explained things on his MySpace page saying that everyone just got “a little carried away” adding that they now have a mutual respect for each other.   Rikki went on to say, “Life is short, let’s get rocked.”   It’s a pretty impressive turnaround since just last August, Rikki threatened Leppard singer Joe Elliott with a beatdown following Joe’s comments that Rockett is a “f***ing idiot [who has] never seen a good band before.” The whole beef started in July when Elliott said that Poison had sold out.   The bands’ tour kicks off on June 23rd in Camden, New Jersey.
