5 reasons why Bret Michaels has to pull through
by JimK

For those who have a thing called a “life” and may not keep up with the latest celebrity goings-on, Bret Michaels is gravely ill. He had acute appendicitis the other day, came through the surgery, but had to be rushed to the hospital due to a massive subarachnoid hemorrhage - bleeding at the base of the brain stem.

Some of you know...we have a personal connection to the man, Donna and her friends followed them on tour back in the day and made friends with the band, and of course I savaged the shit out of two years of that God-forsaken Rock of Love show. And all his douchiness aside, I’m still a Poison fan. If you cut me, I bleed, among other things, neon green.  And so, I have compiled a list of 5 reasons why Bret has to make it:

5. Every group deserves a spokesperson - even douchebags

4. Spray-painted straw cowboy hats. That’s right. I said it. Spray-painted straw cowboy hats. With writing on them. Who the fuck else is gonna rock that look?

3. Paris Hilton and Lady GaGa can’t keep the Los Angeles hair extension industry alive by themselves!

2. VH1 won’t have anything to air anymore, they’ll just have to shut the doors. Especially since Flava Flav is about two weeks from a crack overdose.

1. And the number one reason why Bret Michaels has to survive this health scare: Those god-damned Ed Hardy shirts aren’t gonna sell themselves. That shit is an industry now, and the American economy just can’t take the hit. Besides, folks going to Wal-Mart gotta have something to wear besides Juicy Couture and Miley Cyrus shit.

Eh, Motley Crue could have kicked Poison’s ass :-)

Seriously, I hope he makes it if for no other reason than to have another comeback tour...or at the very least tell Donald Trump to kiss his ass.

Quite frankly, I’m amazed any of these guys are still around.

PS Five other reasons why he should make it:

5. So he can tell Shawn Michaels to stop copying his look.

4. For the inevitable “Decline of Western Civilization: Where Are they Now?” documentary.

3. Air guitar just wouldn’t be the same without him.

2. Somebody needs to keep day-glo alive.

And the number one other reason Michaels has to make it:

David Lee Roth can’t be the biggest douche bag in rock, can he?
