Reservoir announces the acquisition of the producer catalog of legendary Rock producer Tom Werman. The deal includes 100% of Werman’s producer rights for all of his works including the #1 Billboard Hot 100 hit “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” by Poison.

Werman began his career as an A&R executive for Epic Records, signing standout rock artists like REO Speedwagon, Cheap Trick, Ted Nugent, Molly Hatchet, and Boston, before shifting focus to record producing, where he went on to contribute to 23 Gold- and Platinum-certified records for artists and bands such as Mother’s Finest, Ted Nugent, Cheap Trick, Molly Hatchet, Blue Öyster Cult, Mötley Crüe, Twisted Sister, Lita Ford, Dokken, Kix, L.A. Guns, and Poison.

In addition to “Every Rose Has Its Thorn,” some of Werman’s evergreen productions include Poison’s “Nothin’ But A Good Time,” Twisted Sister’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It” and “I Wanna Rock,” Mötley Crüe’s “Girls, Girls, Girls,” and Cheap Trick’s “Surrender,” among many others.

On the acquisition, Werman says, “It’s gratifying to make this agreement with Faith Newman and the Reservoir team who genuinely care about my work, and I’m glad to have found such avid supporters.”

“I am so happy to continue to represent Tom, from when he produced amazing albums back in the day to this new deal with Reservoir,” Marvin Katz, Werman’s attorney, adds. “We are thankful to the great Reservoir team for all their enthusiasm.”

Adds Reservoir EVP, A&R and Catalog Development Faith Newman, “From the powerful, iconic hits to the deeper cuts, Tom’s contributions to Rock as we know it are indelible. We are honored to now include them as part of the Reservoir catalog.”
