Poison frontman Bret Michaels is on roll from the last few years.
With a successful solo band and now an award winner, things are looking extremely good for him.
Bret Michaels will be the “Humanitarian Of The Year” award recipient at the annual Hollywood Christmas Parade.
Michaels is a multi-platinum global music superstar whose multi-faceted brand encompasses record-breaking touring sales, TV stardom and chart-topping songs. A successful entrepreneur in addition to his musical achievements, he created the multi-million-dollar-selling Pets Rock Collection with PetSmart, launched his own line of custom guitars and created “Bret’s Blend, Diet Trop-A-Rocka” which is a number-one-selling beverage for Dr. Pepper/Snapple Group.
Here’s the statement from Bret:
“I could not be more honored to receive this ‘Humanitarian Of The Year’ award.”
“It truly touches my soul, and I am extremely grateful to be able to receive this award at the holidays, which is the perfect time of year to give back and donate to great causes like Toys For Tots. I can’t wait to play a song or two and I truly look forward to this chance to meet a lot of amazing people and fans at the Hollywood Christmas Parade.”
Back in the ’80s, Poison released some of the best rock anthems such as Every Rose Has Its Thorn, Cry Tough, Talk Dirty To Me, Rock And Roll All Nite, Fallen Angel, I Want Action, I Won’t Forget You and more.
Poison breakthrough happened in 1986 with the release of their debut album “Look What The Cat Dragged In”. The band was signed to Enigma Records and surprisingly this album became the best selling album on the label. The band ultimately got bigger and bigger over the years selling millions of albums and countless tours worldwide. Poison haven’t released an album in a long time and fans have been waiting for new music almost every year.
