Indy: You recently finished a second season of the VH1 reality series Rock of Love, in which some two dozen women compete for dates with you. How did season two compare to season one?
BM: Season one was a crazy, fun, experimental party. And the girls made it great. We had an awesome time. I got to be exactly who and what I am. I felt that season two had beautiful women. I thought they were just as crazy, but much more emotional. And what made season two much more difficult was that a lot of the girls knew what I was like. They knew what I liked and didn't like. So they knew how to play it a little bit better.
Indy: You have a new solo CD, Rock My World, which is something of a soundtrack to Rock of Love. Tell us about it.
BM: That's what this album is it's a collection of past, present and future stuff, really. All of it was played on the last two seasons of Rock of Love. People are really excited. Like, I play some of my solo shows, and some of the new fans know [the solo songs] "Bittersweet" or "Raine" better than they know [Poison's] "Unskinny Bop."
Indy: What are your solo shows like?
BM: It's very electric. It's very exciting. It's a full band. But what's cool about it, it's almost like an amped-up Storytellers, an energetic Storytellers. So what happens is I play the songs, but in between them, I talk a little about what I was thinking, what I was doing. But then we give you the full production of the song. We don't strip it down. We give you the full band and the full song and make it a party.
