||Poison, Extreme, Jackyl|
Walnut Creek Pavilion, Raleigh
|I saw Poison once, when they were opening for Ratt. They were actually pretty awesome (better than Ratt) -- a little less slick than on record, gritty in a hardrock/Aerosmith kind of way. Of course, that was literally 28 years ago, so who knows.|
I also saw some precursor to Jackyl, back when the brothers who form the nucleus of the band still lived in Seneca, SC. They played the Pendleton High School Battle of the Bands (as did our hometown faves, The Lubricators). Jackyl may even have won; I honestly don't remember now, given that it would also have been 28+ years ago.
Of course I never saw Extreme; I'm not *that* stupid.
