Rocker, Reality Star Bret Michaels in Critical Condition
Bret Michaels has been rushed to the hospital with an apparent massive hemorrhage. Few details are known at the moment as to the rocker's condition, though he did have his appendix removed earlier this month.
Michaels' music career began with the creation of the band Paris in 1983. After several lineup changes the band was renamed Poison, they moved to Los Angeles and became one of the biggest glam metal bands in the world. Poison has released nine studio albums and scored many hit singles, though they have failed to recieve much radio play since the early 1990's. Their most recent original album, 2007's Poison'd!, reached number 12 on the U.S. Rock chart.
In more recet years, Michaels has traded his rock fame for reality television stardom.
In February 2007, VH1 announced that Michaels would star as the bachelor in the reality television dating competition series called Rock of Love. Jes Rickleff was the winner of the first season of the series, however, she announced during the reunion show that she and Michaels were not right for each other.
Michaels went on to star in the second season of Rock of Love, and another series called Rock of Love Bus in 2009. Even more recently, Michaels has been a competitor on NBC's The Celebrity Apprentice with Donald Trump.
