Miley Cyrus: Poison Introduced Me To Rock And Roll
Miley Cyrus has commented on her decision to cover Poison’s Every Rose Has Its Thorn.
The teenage popstrel says on her website (www.mileycyrus.com):
“Every Rose… is a classic and one of my favourites. Bret Michaels and Poison was my very first concert and introduced me to rock and roll.
“I recently heard the song play and everyone around me starting singing along. It’s a song that everyone knows and loves. I feel like the way the music industry is today really shelters kids and they aren’t exposed to songs as honest and real as this one.
“Bret and I had a great time in the studio together, just hanging out and making music. It was so surreal to have him sit down with his acoustic guitar and walk me through Every Rose… and then give me the opportunity to add my own flare and edge to it. Bret is so passionate about music and it shows.
“I think it is such a rad collaboration because it shows that two artists that seem so different on the outside can come together and organically create something that we are both proud of. I look forward to finishing the song in LA with Bret and John Shanks, who is producing.”
