It's perfectly reasonable to wonder what possessed Bret Michaels to rush back out on the road after surgery, contributing to complications that put him back in the hospital and forced him to cancel a show.
Right now, many bands are starting to announce their summer touring schedule. One of the regular names absent from the list is Poison, and a recent tweet from drummer Rikki Rockett gives a clue as to why they might not hit the road.
Bret Michaels had a scare on the road Friday morning (June 21) while his tour bus was traveling between shows from Abilene,Texas to Biloxi, Miss. Breaking in a brand bus along the trek the vehicle hit some deer on the highway resulting in an accident.
Suffering a brain hemorrhage is probably one of the more terrifying experiences a person can go through. For Poison's Bret Michaels, that terror was compounded by a fear of getting caught watching softcore porn when the EMTs showed up to save his life.
