Biography

Bret Michaels is, if nothing else, a true survivor. He has survived a lifelong battle as an insulin dependent diabetic, a well publicized near fatal car crash in 1994 and the countless musical trends and fads of the last two decades.

“As soon as I ever start to just go through the motions I’ll quit,” confessed the 45 year old singer, songwriter, producer, director and actor in a recent interview. But there’s little chance he’ll even slow down let alone quit anytime soon. In fact, after more than 20 years in the business this award winning, multi platinum superstar’s career continues to move at warp speed.

As front man for the legendary rock band Poison, Michaels has sold 25 million records and scored an amazing 15 chartbusting Top 40 singles including “Talk Dirty to Me,” “Something to Believe In,” “Nothing But a Good Time” and the timeless #1 smash “Every Rose Has its Thorn.”

And in the new millennium Poison’s music has been featured in such big screen flicks as “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” “Grandma’s Boy” and “Deuce Bigelow-European Gigolo.” They continue to be one of the industry’s top grossing concert attractions and their 2006 “20 Years of Rock” CD was a bona fide Top 20 gold smash. Poison’s most recent CD is 2007’s “Poison’D” an album of cover songs that have influenced the band members over the years.

Michaels has also produced and written material for other artists including Stevie Nicks. He wrote and produced the song “Love’s a Hard Game to Play” which appeared on Nicks’ platinum album “Timespace: The Best Of Stevie Nicks.” More recently Michaels could be heard providing background vocals along with Phil Vassar on the Kenny Chesney/Uncle Kracker duet single “Last Night Again.”

In the mid-90s Michaels formed a film production company with actor Charlie Sheen. The partnership ultimately led to Michaels writing, directing and starring in several films including “A Letter From Death Row” which he executive co-produced with Sheen.

As an actor, Michaels has made regular appearances on such hit television shows as “Yes Dear,” “Martial Law,” and “The Chris Isaak Show.” And he has also co-hosted “Access Hollywood” and been a judge on the wildly popular “Nashville Star” program. Recently, Michaels has played for charity on “Don’t Forget the Lyrics” winning $250,000 for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Setting his musical sights beyond Poison, Michaels released his debut solo album “Songs of Life” in 2003 followed by the rootsy, Americana flavored sophomore record “Freedom of Sound” in 2005. The current release, “Rock My World” was released in June 2008 and features a collection of Bret Michaels’ solo songs that have been featured on the “Rock Of Love” television series.

“Rock of Love with Bret Michaels” has been a enormous ratings winner for Vh1. The series has became the highest rated series on Vh1 and consistently won its time slot when aired, including multiple airings. Michaels is currently filming a third installment of the series aptly titled “Rock of Love Bus with Bret Michaels” as the singer is taking the show on the road this time.

“I would play music whether I made it or not,” Michaels told a journalist in 2002 and it’s that commitment to his art that continues to keep him at the forefront of the entertainment industry.

As the lead singer of both the legendary rock band Poison and a solo band, which combined have sold over 30 million albums, charted 15 smash hit singles, and toured the world for more than 22 years. With creativity and passion, Bret has reinvented himself from singer-songwriter to rock star, director, screenwriter, solo artist, father, modern-day pop icon, and producer. He has written for countless other artists, such as Stevie Nicks, and is the star of the number one hit VH1 reality series, Rock of Love with Bret Michaels, which remains one of the most popular shows in the network's history.

See how his love of rock and roll is the reason for-and ruin of- of all good things. From sex tape scandals and onstage fistfights, to concerts for the troops in Iraq and celebrity run-ins, to a life threatening car accident, and world tours for multiplatinum albums, Bret has never feared a challenge. Building his career brick-by-brick, he remained grounded. His family, friends, fans, and even critics helped forge his completely unique path from garage band dreamer to legendary rock star . This is one Behind the Music you do not want to miss.

Tune in Thursday night to hear the remarkable stories and see the behind-the-scenes pictures that tell the yet untold story of Bret Michaels.

Billboard.com reports that the release date of Bret Michaels’ autobiography, Roses and Thorns: The Rock N’ Roll Fantasy to My Reality, has been pushed back to next year. The publisher explained the delay is so Bret can include more recent stories in the book, like what happened during Poison’s recent tour with Def Leppard and Cheap Trick, and details of the injuries Bret sustained at the Tony Awards.

Drugs, booze, women and more women — anything and everything happened. A diabetic, Bret's self indulgence took its toll, but not even collapsing on stage could slow him down. The lifestyle also cost Bret a valued romantic relationship (he turned his heartbreak into the hit power ballad ("Every Rose Has Its Thorn). After turning to alcohol and nearly losing his life in a severe car accident, Bret got a wake-up call cleaned himself up and started a successful solo career and even dabbling in film production, writing and starring in 1997's "A Letter From Death Row".
