Rikki Rockett — you know him for his incredible talents behind the drums with POISON and DEVIL CITY ANGELS. But there is so much more to this guy than kick drums and crashing cymbal. Currently in the studio laying down tacks for some new DEVILS CITY ANGELS music, Rockett is also a black belt in jiu-jitsu, the father to a couple of pretty awesome kids, a photographer, motorcycle junkie, animal rights activist, founder and part of the creative team of Fallen Angel Customs. And on top of all that, he's funny, has a huge heart and is one smart motherucker.
Those are just some of the reasons you should subscribe to his new vlog — "Rockett Vlog". Get to know more about what Rikki knows, what he wants to know, and more about Rikki.
"I started it to share things that I find fun and interesting, and stuff that people might not know about," said Rockett about why he started "Rockett Vlog". "When we have common interests, we learn about things that we may not have known or cared about before."
Watch and listen to Rikki talk about everything from haircuts and tattoos to motorcycles and cameras, to jiu-jitsu, and how much he loves being a dad. You need a YouTube account to subscribe — and once you do that, click on that bell so you get notifications when he posts something.
Check out episode four of the "Rockett Vlog" below. In the 18-minute clip, Rikki can be seen visiting the gigantic annual National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) show, which took over the Anaheim Convention Center and surrounding hotels and concert venues Thursday, January 24 through Sunday, January 28.
POISON's reunited original lineup — Rockett, Bret Michaels, Bobby Dall and C.C. DeVille — completed a North American tour with DEF LEPPARD last summer.
The band is scheduled to perform at this year's Rocklahoma festival, set for Friday, May 25, Saturday, May 26 and Sunday, May 27, 2018 at "Catch the Fever" Festival Grounds in Pryor, Oklahoma, just outside Tulsa.
Rockett was declared cancer free two years ago after undergoing an experimental treatment. He was diagnosed with oral cancer back in 2015.
