    Does anyone know the name of the font used in the 80's glam rock band Poison's logo? And can you point me in the direction of where I can download or purchase the font?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It was probably originally hand rendered but a lot of the fonts used for different band logos have been made into type sets. I've found a ton, just not this one, which of course it the one that I need.

    Attached is a sample of the logo. Anything even similar would do.

    careful

    ogriv, I never thought 30 was that much older than 20. We (at my day job) hired a guy to be an intern here, and I was drawing a set of plans with him looking over my shoulder yesterday when Guns 'N Roses came on the radio.

    I said "Oooh, GnR fan are ya?"

    He said, "Yeah, I like some CLASSIC rock."

    I thought classic rock was the beatles and the moody blues and the who?

    What's happening? Are you really only as old as you feel?

    This site dose not have the Poison font but they do have a lot of good rock fonts. http://www.musiceffect.com/fonts/ I think rockrage.com had it but that site is not up any more. I think the Poison logo was hand rendered also but I think someone recreated it as a font.

    Speaking of classic rock, you know the lead and founder of Pink Floyd Syd Barrett passed on... Songs such as Wish You Were Here were written for Barrett.
