An official statement released to Metal Edge about the departure of C.C. DeVILLE from POISON has been confirmed by BRET MICHAELS and RIKKI ROCKETT, who accuse DeVille of "lying to everyone," and using Poison to get "cheap publicity" for his band SAMANTHA 7 while never intending to record or tour with POISON. Michaels says that DeVille never showed up for scheduled recording sessions and told Portrait Records' JOHN KALODNER that he would not work with Poison again, which left them no option but to find another guitar player. TRACII GUNS is working with the band on the Live + Five record (concert tracks from last summer's tour plus five new songs) that will be released, quite possibly by Portrait, in time for the start of the tour in mid-June. . Guns, still with L.A. GUNS ("We're working around his schedule," says Michaels) will be aboard for the tour, which will also feature CINDERELLA, DOKKEN and SLAUGHTER.
