Glam rocker Bret Michaels and his two huge party buses rolled into Aspen, Colorado for a raucous show at Belly Up Aspen. Michaels, formerly lead singer for the Glam Metal band, Poison (huge in the 80's) proved that he can still put on a raaawk show.
The evenings highlight, Poison's power ballad "Every Rose Has its Thorn" rose to #1 on the U.S. Charts in 1988. The love song was scribed by Michaels in a laundromat as he lamented over his cheating girlfriend. Poison and Michaels have an esteemed position in the annals of glam/hair/spandex rock. More recently, Michaels has hosted his own reality TV series Rock of Love and he actually won the Celebrity Apprentice.
Last night Bret Michaels threw down plenty of hard driving covers and a few solo hits and Belly Up Aspen seemed to love it. BM guaranteed a return to Aspen next year-- "after some work on my ticker....i'm gonna come back next year and ski...and snowboard". The crowd went wild.
