Bret Michaels appearance at Cache Creek should be ‘Nothin’ but a Good Time’
BROOKS, Calif. – Bret Michaels is, if nothing else, a true survivor. He’s survived a life-long 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. He’s also survived the onslaught of drama emanating from the ladies who vie for his companionship on the hit VH1 show “Rock of Love,” and a set piece that fell on his head during the Tony ceremonies in June, forcing him to cancel an appearance at Cache Creek Casino Resort. Folks who didn’t get their chance to see Michaels because of that missed appearance can catch him on Saturday, Dec. 5 at 8 p.m. at Cache Creek’s Club 88. Despite these recent adversities, the charismatic singer vows to “keep rockin’ til I can’t rock anymore.”
“As soon as I ever start to just go through the motions I’ll quit,” confesses the 45-year-old singer, songwriter, producer, director and actor. 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.
s front man for the legendary rock band Poison, Michaels sold 25 million records and scored an amazing 15 chartbusting Top-40 singles including “Talk Dirty to Me,” “Something to Believe In,” “Nothin’ But a Good Time” and the timeless number one smash “Every Rose Has its Thorn.” And in the new millennium, Poison’s music has been featured in such big screen features as “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” “Grandma’s Boy” and “Deuce Bigelow European Gigolo.” Poison continues 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.
As an actor, Michaels has made regular appearances on such hit television shows as “Yes Dear,” “Martial Law,” and “The Chris Isaak Show.” He has also co-hosted “Access Hollywood” and been a judge on the wildly popular “Nashville Star” program. But most reality TV fans know him best as the front man for VH1’s top rated show of all time “Rock of Love,” and its third season incarnation titled “Rock of Love Bus.”
Despite his TV fame, Michaels continues to tour, releasing two post-Poison albums: “Songs of Life” in 2003 followed by his rootsy, Americana flavored sophomore record “Freedom of Sound” in 2005. Not to worry, though. Fans of Poison will still hear the most popular hits from his time with that band when he makes a “bus stop” at Cache Creek in June.
