The defence: “It was nothin’ but a good time.”

29Mar08

While his bandmate Bret Michaels searches for true love on his VH1 reality show, Poison drummer Rikki Rockett has been arrested for rape:

Poison drummer Rikki Rockett was arrested on a rape warrant, and his case was turned over to the district attorney’s office for possible grand jury consideration, officials said Friday. […] Rockett, whose real name is Richard Ream, did not have a listed number in the Los Angeles area and could not be reached Friday for comment.

Wow. I always faintly suspected Rikki Rockett might not be his real name, but Richard Ream? As in Dick Ream? With a name like that, how did he not become a porn star? If only he’d followed his destiny, he’d be getting paid to have as much sex as he wanted, and he wouldn’t be in this fix. And here I thought Tommy Lee was the hair-metal drummer who ought to have skipped the Sunset Strip in favour of the San Fernando Valley.

    This would be so much less upsetting if instead of “Poison drummer Rikki Rockett was arrested on a rape warrant,” it had said “Poison drummer Rikki Rockett was arrested for raping Warrant.”

    Not ony Dick Ream, but potentially D. Ream.

    Mr and Mrs Ream were either cruel or clueless.

    uhmm didnt you people hear that he didnt do it? Someone used his name to get someone to sleep with them. It turns out that he wasnt even in the same state that night.
