Concert: Look what the cat dragged in

By Bobble Tiki on August 9, 2011


When Bobble Tiki was a tiny tyke, Father Tiki taught him an important lesson. Father Tiki said ''Bobble, every rose has its thorn. Just like every night has its dawn. Just like every cowboy sings a sad, sad, song.''

Wait a minute, those are also the lyrics from a Poison song.

This explains why Father Tiki's talk about the birds and the bees included multiple references to the phrase "Unskinny Bop."

It's only appropriate, then, that Bobble Tiki will be upfront for hair-metal rockers Poison, Motley Crue and the New York Dolls Friday night at the Tacoma Dome for more fatherly advice ... and Aqua Net to impressionable young fans.
