Bret Michaels In Critical Condition

By Robert Paul Reyes

Bret Michaels, 47, suffered a brain hemorrhage and is in critical condition at an undisclosed hospital.

bret michaelsMichaels is best known as the lead vocalist of the glam metal band Poison. The rocker has also released several solo albums, as well as one single that achieved modest success.

The big hair bands had their heyday in the 80`s, but instead of playing small clubs Michaels reinvented himself as a star of reality shows. Michaels was currently appearing in the current edition of The Celebrity Apprentice.

You have to admire Michaels girt and determination in finding a way to stay in the limelight. Starring in reality shows may not be as glamorous as being worshiped as a rock star by thousands of adoring fans, but it pays the bills.

Michaels is going to need every bit of that grit and determination to survive his brain hemorrhage. His loyal fans who know him from his days as the lead singer of Poison, and his younger fans of his reality shows wish him all the best.
