Overview

After more than twenty years in the music business Bret Michaels has sold twenty-five million records and scored an amazing fifteen chartbusting Top 40 singles including the timeless #1 smash hit “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.”?? Today, this award-winning, multi-platinum superstar’s career continues to move at lightning speed following VH1’s hit reality dating show Rock of Love with Bret Michaels —which aired for three seasons and featured a bevy of ladies competing for an all-access pass to Bret Michaels’s heart and to share in his superstar lifestyle. .

Bret Michaels is, if nothing else, a true survivor. He has survived a lifelong 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. Now, Michaels continues his rebirth through this provocative chronicle of his life, in the tradition of Motley Crüe’s The Dirt . .

Roses & Thorns reveals everything about Bret’s rockstardom, from the Pennsylvania creation of “the ultimate garage band,” to MTV’s banning of their explicit videos and their 2007 sold-out summer tour. Because he’s diabetic, Bret never participated in the drug- and booze-fueled partying like the others, but he was at the center of this movement of over-indulgence and has plenty of stories to tell. Also, Bret dishes on his short but notorious relationship with Pamela Anderson—which resulted in an infamous sex tape that circulated on the Internet and was released as a DVD in 2005. Readers will be captivated and entertained by Roses & Thorns , a fascinating account of one of the most enduring rock musicians of the past two decades. .

Editorial Reviews

Bret Michaels attracts attention in almost any arena. As the lead vocalist in Poison, he has been a key factor in that glam metal band's phenomenal success. (To date, his band and solo albums have sold over 25 million records.) For three seasons, he starred in VH1's hit reality show Rock of Love with Bret Michaels and was the winning contestant in Celebrity Apprentice 3. His celebrity doesn't stop there: He appears prominently in a notorious sex videotape with Pamela Anderson and also figures centrally in stories of fistfights and band feuds. His Roses & Thorns tells the entire exciting, entertaining, raucous story. A memoir guaranteed to keep his fans fixated.
