As front man for the gritty and glam 80s rock band Poison, Bret Michaels has sold 30 million albums worldwide, with 10 singles hitting the Billboard Hot 100.
The multi-platinum-selling rocker's 25 years with Poison have produced eight studio and four live albums, with hits including "Talk Dirty to Me," "Something to Believe in," and "Nothing But a Good Time," and the #1 "Every Rose Has Its Thorn." Michaels has since branched out with a chart-topping solo career, with his latest release, "Custom Built," reaching #1 on the Billboard Hard Rock charts last year.
Equally successful for Michaels is his reality TV career, which includes "Rock of Love," one of the most popular shows in VH1 history; a VH1 docu-series in 2010 called "Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It," and Donald Trump's series on NBC, "Celebrity Apprentice." On "Apprentice," Michaels, a lifelong diabetic, went head-to-head with top business-minded celebrities, donating his $250,000 prize to diabetes research and becoming an American Diabetes Association spokesperson.
Philanthropy remains a big part of Michael's career: he has donated to and supported numerous charities and causes, including the Muhammad Ali Foundation, which supports those suffering from Parkinson's Disease; the Barrow Brain Tumor Foundation, and the Camelot Therapeutic Ranch for adults and children with disabilities.
