Band incident

During a Poison show in Atlanta on August 25, 2006, Dall and Bret Michaels had to be separated by members of the road crew and the rest of the band after the two came to blows right before the encore, with Michaels throwing his mic at Dall, and Dall retaliating by slamming his bass into Michaels, injuring his knee. Michaels apologized later and stated, "You may have just seen the last concert by Poison in its current formation." The altercation happened before the band's set ended with "Talk Dirty To Me." After some tense moments and Michaels' apology to the crowd including his explanation that "like brothers, sometimes you have to air things out," the band did finish the set. Dall left the stage immediately.

There have been many physical conflicts within the band over the years, but this altercation was the first onstage incident since the fistfight between Michaels and Poison guitarist C.C. Deville at the MTV Video Music Awards in 1991, although that took place after the performance, not during. The band took time out while Michaels continued with his solo tour.
