The Sound of Music
Special encore presentation Saturday 8/7c. Watch the special online now.
Bret Michaels is a multi-platinum global superstar who has turned his passion for music into a multi-faceted brand that encompasses record-breaking touring sales, reality TV stardom, legendary songs that have sold over 32 million records and product endorsements. Michaels rose to fame as the front man of Poison, one of rock's most iconic and enduring bands that helped define the rock 'n' roll scene on the Sunset Strip. Charting 10 singles in the top 40 of Billboards Top 100, including the number-one single "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," the band still tours together, selling out venues across the country. Equally as successful, Michaels' solo career has charted its own course with multiple solo albums, the last of which was Custom Built, released in July 2010. His current album release is set for November of 2012, entitled Bret Michaels: Good Songs and Great Friends, where he is joined by a group of legendary artists, who just happen to be great friends. Even though music is Michaels' first passion, the multi-talented performer has achieved yet another accomplishment in the entertainment world with a successful reality TV career. His first reality TV show "Rock of Love," is one of the most successful in VH1's history, shattering weekly rating records during its run. Following three successful seasons of the show, he teamed up with VH1 for the docu-series "Life as I Know It," which continued to prove Michaels as a ratings generator. Michaels is grateful for his success and has used his position to raise awareness for issues that are close to his heart.
Michaels is representing the charity organization Life Rocks Foundation - National Philanthropic Trust.
