All I knew was they were starting to break out big. I had a little studio at my house in Malibu, and in probably ’93, Jerry and those guys came out and we sang, wrote music, partied, had a good time. I was talkin’ to Jerry, and we both addressed how now there was supposed to be this anger and hatred between us. I said, ‘We don’t hate each other, right?’ We both laughed, and he goes, ‘I grew up on Sabbath and Kiss.’ And I said, ‘Me, too.’ And he said, ‘I know we’re supposed to not like each other, but you’re a cool dude.’ We were laughing about the media portraying us as such enemies. If you like somebody, you like somebody.”—Poison singer Bret Michaels, from Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge
