Cinderella. Great White. Winger. Dokken. Skid Row. Didn't we stake these bleached-blond bobbleheads in the heart 20 years ago? Well, rock's generational tendency to recycle itself has reopened the hair-band crypt, and, though most of these girlie-men Nosferati aren't worth mentioning, Poison guitarist C.C. DeVille is a special case. First off, the dude can shred and even beat out future Guns N' Roses star Slash for the Poison gig. Second, he's quite the smarty-pants, having studied music theory at NYU and earned a master's degree in linguistics from the State University of New York at New Paltz. (Hmm, maybe that's why those Poison lyrics are so freakin' poetic, eh?) You can shoot the highbrow shit with the ax murderer at the C.C. DeVille Poison/Ratt Aftershow Party. The bash follows the hair-band blowout earlier in the evening at Dodge Theatre.
