Shake, Rattle

and Rape?

3/28/2008 7:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that Poison drummer Rikki Rockett had to bail on a gig tomorrow night at his local coffee shop because of the Mississippi warrant that's out for his arrest on sexual assault charges. Don't ya hate when that happens?!

Rikki
He and his fiancee Melanie Martel, a singer, were scheduled to play at Rattlesnake Slim's, an intimate coffeehouse/music venue in Newhall, Calif., not far from where Rikki and Melanie live. But after the story about his warrant broke last night, Rikki called Slim's today and told them they wouldn't be able to make it "due to what's going on" and the crush of media that would follow.

When asked about his legal woes, we're told, Rikki said he couldn't talk about it "because of his lawyers."

Oh man! There goes my plans for Saturday night! Now wherever shall I go for my white chocolate mocca vente w/ whippage and chocolate dust and listen to an 80's glam metal throwback and his babe do coffee house versions of "Every Rose Has It's Thorn" and "Cry Tough" and let us not forget the ever toe tapping sound of "Unskinny Bop"?!?! By the way, I am not jumping to conclusions on this accusation on Rikki. There have ben many cases of false charges of rape thrown at high profile and once semi high profile people before and in the end the truth came out that nothing happend. Rikki, if you are not guilty I do hope that something positive emerges from this for you. What that could be only God knows right now.
