The "Celebrity Apprentice" contestant was rushed to an emergency room in San Antonio, Texas [where he was scheduled to do a concert] on April 11 after suffering from severe stomach pains. Turns out that Michaels had an acute appendicitis and underwent emergency surgery at 1 AM.

 

"If I had gone onstage like I wanted to, it likely would have ruptured and I could have died," the singer wrote on his Fancast blog.

 

Michaels, who also suffers from Type 1 diabetes, is currently recovering at an undisclosed treatment facility that specializes in the treatment of patients with diabetes.

 

"I don't know how much longer I will be under medical supervision. I've spoken to several doctors and they all seem to be impressed with the condition I have been able to keep myself in as a juvenile diabetic. But a lot of extra care needs to be taken to make sure my body heals correctly," said Michaels.

 

Bret says it may be four to six weeks before he's up and about, but being a diabetic it could be longer.

Does that mean the next season of Rock of Love will be delayed? lol

 

Best wishes to Bret for a speedy recovery. I know diabetes makes things so much more difficult to hear properly, but as good as he tries to take care of himself, hopefully that'll help.

He's on 'The Apprentice' too? Really? Why? Anyway, all the best for a speedy recovery and all that, but for f*ck's sake dude, please stop with all this nonsense and record a new Poison CD! :lol:

Forgive my lack of sympathy, but the guy had appendicitis. Big fucking deal. The "surgery" was presumably to take his appendix out? Hardly serious these days, and not something that a billion others havent suffered from (including me, last year). It's painful, sure, but no worse than say a hard kick in the stomach (something I'd like to do to this loser). Diabetes can make the recovery slower and can add complications, but he's a fit guy and still pretty young so no reason for him not to live a full life. Though someone ought to tell him that singing makes his condition worse, in the vain hope that he will just stop.

Wow ! Not many Brett Michaels fans on this site, it seems ... :tumbsup:

 

Does he actually have any fans besides Geoff ? ;)

Well, there's Geoff and about a million aging floozies, and kids who don't know any better and think because he's everywhere, he must've been good.

 

I must've liked Poison at least a little bit as a kid, but never owned any of their albums. But as time goes by, I've grown to hate the band, and particularly Bret, more and more.

 

And he's already milking it for all the sympathy he can. Just saw a quote on Bravewords: "If I had gone out onstage like I wanted to, I could have died!" Drama queen!

How about a live pay per view appendicitis operation, with a non lubricated barbed wire glove and blunt scalpel,if he wants the TV exposure that much. Or how about a show starring Brett & CC, dodging high speed trains! In fact, put the whole band on the show for even more laughs per minute. ;)

No shit, I'd go for that in a big way! You see where Cowboy Bret is opening for Skynyrd this summer? I was almost hoping he would be on teh bill when Skynyrd play the state fair in my area, just so I could sped his entire set howling abuse at the stage ... but he's not. Oh well!

 

In addition to being a talentless clown, the guy is blissfully free of any self-awareness.

Just read this.

 

Wow! 2010 has been pretty horrible for Bret thus far. I wish him a full recovery and a return to normalcy in his life, regardless of whether he can make music/tour anymore. He's still got loved ones who need him around. It's amazing how quick lives can change.

 

Best wishes and good luck Bret.

Holy shit, how did that happen? Either way, glad to hear that it sounds like he's okay.

Tough crowd, tough crowd.

 

I liked Poison back in the day. Their later releases didn't do anything for me though.

As for Bret, well I saw parts of Season 1 of Rock Of Love. Mrs. Jeff thought he was an "idiot". Other than that I don't hear much about him so he doesn't bother me one way or the other.

 

Here's to a speedy recovery Bret.

All other reports are saying that the TMZ report is totally wrong, and he is still critical, with the diabtes making things worse.

I admit to just believing what I read about the stabalised condition, but to be honest I didn't think a recovery from a "major brain hemmorhage" would be that instant and easy. Either way, I can only wish him all the best.

From reading other reports, some are now quoting the TMZ report, which makes things all a little bit up in the air.

The fact that TMZ's source is apparently the winner of Rock of love, is what makes the TMZ report have less validity in my opinion, sadly.

UPDATE: Bret Michaels still in critical condition, according to his official website

UPDATE (4/25): Bret Michaels official website posted a new message on Sunday: "Everyone at Michaels Entertainment would like to thank all fans and friends for their continued thoughts and prayers through this difficult time.

 

At this point Bret remains in ICU in critical condition. He is under 24 hour doctors' care and supervision. We are hopeful that further tests will locate the source of the bleeding, which has still not been located. As we all know Bret is a fighter and we are hopeful that once all is complete the slurred speech, blurred vision and dizziness, etc. will be eliminated and all functions will return to normal.

 

More information will be posted as it becomes available."

this seems pretty serious. if he hadn't done all this reality tv crap he still would have been taken a bit more serious. I still think the guy is a talent when he wants to be. Poison had some really good songs and I know for some strange reason, people that feel this way are not in the majority around here, although this site is packed full of bands that get praise heaped on them that were just like Poison, just not as successful.

 

all the best to Bret

    • Lyric video for 'Return To Glory'.    
    • New album out November 22 through Lions Pride Music. From Lions Pride Music: Martin Perticone AKA “Perticone Underdog” is an artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina who’s been in the music industry since the age of 13, when he joined the band Fondo Blues as a lead singer and guitar player. Martin played in the Argentinean under circuits for more than 25 years but during the way also got to know many important people in the music industry that led him to become Tour Manager for artists like Eric Martin from Mr Big in 2007 or even being invited as a guest for Richie Kotzen Latin American Tour in 2008. Martin has also toured around Latin America, USA, Europe and Hong Kong as a hired gun for many different artists until he finally decided to put more efforts on his solo career. That’s how his long-time friend Edu Giardina (well-known artist in Latin America) would become his producer and mentor for his debut album “Underdog”. The mixture of AOR, Southern Rock and Country makes this album unique and different with amazing and powerful melodies all over the place. The album featured guests such as Eric Martin (Mr Big) and Edu Giardina and brings reminiscent from the late 80’s and 90’s but keeping the best of current sounds and trends too. Perticone’s solo career has just begun and in only 1 year from his launch he’s got many followers and fans in Europe, Asia and Latin America. “Stuff In The Basement” was recorded during pandemic times at RED Studios Buenos Aires and features an amazing line-up of musicians from all over the world. Edu Giardina and Guillermo Porro got involved, one more time, as the producers and band members for this new release taking the album to another level. It is plain to see the growth of Perticone Underdog as an artist on this new production by just listening to the opening track of the album “Blame it on Me”. There are, as usual, some country “pearls” and 90’s rock reminiscences all over. Stuff in the Basement will be released in 29 August 2022 by Lions Pride Music worldwide!   CD Tracklist: 01. Blame It On Me 02. End Of The Line 03. Name Without A Face 04. Save Me Tonight 05. Game For Fools 06. Waiting 07. Let's Get Lost Tonight 08. What Went Wrong (I Wonder) 09. When It Rains 10. Falling   Perticone Underdog is: Martin Perticone: Lead & Backing Vocals, Acoustic & Rhythm Guitar Edu Giardina: Backing Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Keys, Drums, Progamming Ezequias Aquino: Saxophone Guillermo Porro: Guitar Solo on „Name Without A Face“ Will Wilde: Harmonica on „Game Of Fools“ Emmanuel Lopez: Lead Guitar on „Let's Get Lost Tonight“ Lara Goi: Backing Vocals on „What Went Wrong“ Brad Harper: Pedal Steel Guitar on „When It Rains“   facebook
