It's somewhat misleading to call Bret Michaels' next album a solo effort, as he's teamed up with nearly a dozen well-known rockers and country musicians. The Poison frontman has recorded the project without the band that made him famous. Instead, artists like Ace Frehley, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Aerosmith'sJoe Perry and many more will join him on Poison hits.
The film 'Rock of Ages' may have had a bad opening week at the box office, but the tour of the same name featuring Def Leppard, Poison and Lita Ford fared a little better last night (June 20) as it got underway at the USANA Amphitheater in West Valley City, Utah.
Almost three years after being knocked to the ground while performing at the Tony Awards, Bret Michaels has settled a lawsuit with the show's organizers and the network. While the terms were not made public, Michael's attorney indicated the singer was pleased that the affair was over.
Last we heard from Bret Michaels, he was chasing rock's original gypsy, Stevie Nicks, for a guest spot on his upcoming solo record, 'Get Your Rock On,' tentatively due this summer. While he may not have scored Stevie for the album (yet?), he has already lined up a veritable who's who of...well, of people who make music, spanning the gamut from fellow rock veterans Joe Perry of Aerosmith and Ace Frehley of KISS to country icon Loretta Lynn and chief parrothead Jimmy Buffett.
Def Leppard and Poison will begin a tour of North America in June, crossing the country in 32 days, with 18 shows in the U.S. and Canada. It's the second extended stretch of dates featuring the two '80s rock bands, who toured extensively together in 2009.
Tonight (Feb. 11) had been surprisingly quiet in the rock world for a night right before the Grammy Awards, but that changed immediately with the shocking news of iconic pop star Whitney Houston's untimely demise. The body of Houston, just 48 years old, was discovered at the Beverly Hills Hotel; attempts to revive her were unsuccessful. A cause of death has not yet been determined.
Def Leppard's 2012 trip around the globe is turning into a quasi hair band festival. Poison drummer has confirmed rumors started by lead singer Bret Michaels. The two bands will once again hit the road together this summer.
Bret Michaels has a dream guest list for his next solo effort, ‘Get Your Rock On.’ The Poison vocalist/guitarist hopes to populate the album with guest spots from Def Leppard's Joe Elliott and Phil Collen, as well as legendary singer Stevie Nicks.
