Poison Frontman Michaels to Re
- advertisement -
Bret Michaels turns 40 March 15; is featured on Access Hollywood,
plays VH1's Fairway To Heaven and Jane Magazine aims below the belt
Poison vocalist Bret Michaels has survived 34 years of insulin-dependant diabetes, a high-speed Ferrari wreck, a Harley crash rendering him unconscious, a movie production company with bad boy Charlie Sheen,
a federal injuction stopping the release of a sexually-explicit tape
with then-girlfriend Pamela Anderson and most importantly, surviving
nearly 20 years of partying on the road with Poison (if you've seen VH1's Behind The Music special on the band, you know what we mean) and lived
to talk about it.
When one interviewer asked Michaels if he was concerned about turning
40, the singer replied, “Hell no! It’s all about mind and music over matter. Besides, now I’ve got the experience and all the moving parts are still working...that’s a good day”
In an unusually-titled article in the April issue of Jane Magazine called
"Is That An Ego In Your Pants," Bret's lower half is prominently featured.
And this past weekend, Access Hollywood's one-hour special included Bret talking about his hits, "Every Rose Has It's Thorn" and "Nothin' But A Good Time" and ended with host Pat O'Brien plugging Bret's upcoming record.
In early April, Michaels releases his first ever solo single and video for the song, “Raine,” written about and inspired by the birth of his daughter who was born May 20, 2000. The single is from his upcoming solo album Songs Of Life, which hits streets oddly enough on his daughter's birthday, May 20, 2003.
Fans can pre-purchase the album prior to its release on either Amazon.com
On his birthday, Michaels will fly from his Los Angeles home to Miami, Florida, where he will participate VH1’s Fairway To Heaven Golf Tournament. He will then fly back to Vancouver, Canada, to his second home where he will finish taping Showtime’s The Chris Isaak Show as well as a segment for the highly-viewed “Power Hour” on Canada's Much More Music television.
“All this traveling is awesome. I get to celebrate my 40th birthday in three different cities, at three different parties with three different sets of friends."
An early gift for Michaels from the concert promoters: Poison’s summer tour is confirmed and tickets go on sale this week for the 2003 world tour.
