Here's info about Michaels posted on the Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon's website.
As frontman for the legendary rock band Poison, Bret 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 hit “Every Rose Has its Thorn.”
Michaels has also produced and written material for other artists including “Love’s a Hard Game to Play,” which appeared on Stevie 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.”
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.
“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.
