Rikki Rockett, with a net worth of $15 million, is an American drummer with Metal band, Poison. He was born Richard Allan Ream on August 8th 1961 in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.

Before co-founding Poison, Rikki worked as a dishwasher, hairdresser, emergency room medical technician, lifeguard and a salesman for suits. He, together with Bret Michaels, a vocalist, founded Poison. His drumming can be credited for the prominence of the band in the 1980’s and 1990’s as seen from the way his tattoo and blood pictures graced the covers of the band’s albums.

In January 2003, after nearly twenty years with the band, Rikki released Glitter For Your Soul, his first solo album. In April 2007, he unveiled his new company Rockett Drum Works Inc., a company formed to make custom drums and accessories. Rockett is married to Melanie Martel.
