Florida-born Bobby Dall became interested in playing rock'n'roll at a very
young age, after hearing the Rolling Stones, Kiss and Alice Cooper,
whom he still cites as his main musical influences.

had his first band, Oblivion, in grade school.
After moving up north, Dall met up with Bret and explained
tallest of the Poison bunch.
Dall described himself as "the quieter one on the
band. But none of us are really quiet. I tend to think with the right side
of my brain. I worry more than the most people. I was supposed to be a
lawyer. It was law or rock'n'roll."
Luckily, his music career took off in a major way,
him to perform for thousands of people every night as
toured the world to promote their albums.
Bobby admits that he still gets nervous about playing
live, adding that
think about every self-doubt I ever had - they all come back to me"
taking the stage.
"Splitting pants, getting nervous. I'm always
nervous until the first chord, and then I'm fine. There are nights when
I can't get the tone together. But instead of bumming out, you have to
do the best that you can."
In his pre-Poison days, Dall worked as a cook,
carpenter and clam digger, and had actually planned to go to college, but
changed his mind after his music began taking over his life.
Although Bobby lived in L.A. for a while, he has since
back to Florida, where he feels most at home.

calling my name. I just enjoy it much more," stated the bassist.
In his spare time, he likes to read Stephen King

Dall is also a big movie buff, and his favorite actors
Stallone and Clint Eastwood.
The November 2-born rocker doesn't consider himself
about the people that listen to his music and often disappears on the road
between Poison concerts, once having fans in Philadelphia drive him to
New York where he opened the Cat Club after closing time play D.J. for
his fellow passengers.
Bobby realizes that being in the public eye so much opens
him up for media scrutiny, but still admits that "criticism sometimes
really pisses me off."
To his credit, he doesn't take Poison too seriously, offering
message is fun, nothing more.
not here to remind you of your problems."
While Poison is assured of a lengthy, fruitful future,
Bobby can't help but sometimes wonder what he will be doing once the band
is a thing of the past.
"There's nothing else that I really want to do,"
he stated. "If something ever happened to Poison, I think I'd cash my chip
in and retire. I love to work, but I couldn't work for something I didn't
believe in. I believe in Poison."
