Poison’s Rikki Rockett Has Married Longtime Girlfriend TC Smith
The Poison extended family just became a little larger as Poison drummer Rikki Rockett made it official by marrying his longtime girlfriend TC Smith over the weekend.
The couple were wed on Saturday (April 9) at the Granada Theatre in Santa Barbara, Calif., with the choice of venue just being one of the rock 'n' roll touches for the nuptials. As you might expect, the guest list also included a number of recognizable names with Poison's Bret Michaels and Bobby Dall attending, as did Cinderella's Fred Coury.
As seen in photos below, Michaels attended the ceremony with his daughter Raine and he shared a few photos from the ceremony. In addition, photos have surfaced online of the happy couple during the ceremony and Rockett's wedding party. "Congratulations to Rikki & TC. What an awesome wedding & great time," stated Michaels in his posting.
The drummer, also known as Richard Allan Ream, was previously married to singer-songwriter Melanie Martel. The former couple have two kids. This marks Rockett's second marriage. The musician is also a cancer survivor, having been diagnosed with oral cancer in 2015 and receiving the all clear from doctors in 2016 after undergoing experimental treatment.
Rockett will be back behind the drum kit this summer when Poison hits the road on "The Stadium Tour" with Motley Crue, Def Leppard and Joan Jett.
Congrats to the happy couple. See photos below.
