Early Life

Bret Michaels was born as Bret Michael Sychak on 15 March 1963. He was born in Butter, Pennsylvania, but later moved to grow up in Mechanicsburg city of the same state. In Mechanicsburg itself, Bret completed his high school education.

At the tender age of 6, Bret Michaels found out that he has type 1 Diabetes. However, that didn’t stop him from associating with a band that boats 50 million record sales worldwide, or from having a solo music career.

Bret’s musical career bloomed in his teenage years. Along with Bobby Dall, who was a drummer and Rikki Rockett, who was a bass guitarist, he formed a band in Mechanicsburg. Another member of the band left at the early stages and was replaced by Matt Smith. In 1983, the band was properly formed with the name ‘Paris.’

After playing in Pennsylvania for a while, the band moved to Los Angeles in 1983, where they even decided to undergo a name change. The band turned from ‘Paris’ to ‘Poison’ in that year. Eventually, even Matt Smith gave up on the band and left.
Poison’s struggle for fame and success continued as C.C. DeVille replaced Matt Smith.

The band finally founds its first hint of success when they signed a record deal with Enigma Studios.

Their first album, ‘Look What the Cat Dragged In’ took its time to find its audience, but after the video of the song ‘Talk Dirty to Me’ was released, Poison’s music finally sank into the hearts of the people. ‘Look What the Cat Dragged In’ turned platinum, and Poison finally joined the big leagues.

Bret Michaels faced a personal setback when during the band’s shows in Madison Square Garden, he collapsed on stage due to insulin shock. He was alleged of drug-overdose, but he cleared his name by publicly dressing that he had diabetes from a very early age.

After Bret’s breakup with girlfriend Tracy Lewis, who claimed that Bret’s fame sabotaged their relationship, he came up with the heartbreak anthem of the 80s, ‘Every Rose Has its Thorn.’ Even a blame game ensued among the past couple who blamed each other for being unfaithful.

The band’s next album, ‘Open Up and Say . . . Ahh!’, that came into the picture in 1988, proved to be an even greater hit than the first one. ‘Open Up and Say . . . Ahh!’ consisted of two of the band’s career-defining tracks, i.e. ‘Every Rose Has its Thorn’ and ‘Nothin’ But a Good Time.’

Poison’s third album, ‘Flesh and Blood’ that came out in 1990, also found resonance with the audience. Songs like ‘Unskinny Bop’ and ‘Something to Believe In’ consistently topped music listings and charts.

In his solo career, Bret Michaels released 24 singles, 2 EPs, four compilation albums, and five studio albums.

Michaels even acted as a judge on the TV show Nashville Star.

  1. As a married 49 year old man, I have a lot of respect for mr. Michaels he has put so much of his life into his work. Although he seems to be a hopeless romantic and has as much attention as one would desire it never seems to fill that void Michael’s is trying to fill. I could be completely wrong just my insight. I hope hr finds love amongst his financial freedom and fame… Good luck to you Bret and thank you for the great entertainment you gave us.

  2. I personally feel Bret will never find true love until he takes a deep look into his own soul. He has admitted so many times that he is terrified of marriage. And if you take a long look at his dating pool, let’s face it, everyone of the women are cookie cutter rock girls. Hey, don’t get me wrong, if that is the type he wants then so be it. I’m just saying that the girls have to go into it knowing he gets board easily. Bret has screwed any girl he wants and as long as the girls don’t care about him ever being faithful then great. But he really needs to be honest with himself! He will always be that aging rock star who can never get enough of the party lifestyle and that is what he signed up for, and so do the women. He likes them big titted, young, and doesn’t care who he has sex with. And will even bring home to join you in bed!! You know this Bret! Like RuPaul says— If you don’t love yourself, how the hell are you going to love someone else!!! Your not stupid Bret, but you need to own it!!!

  3. I love Brett
    He is just so cool and humble. I was so hoping that he would marry kristi, the mother of his 2 beautiful girls. You know its not about how much money the man has or his success. I truly believe what makes him sexy is what a great dad he is and how good hearted and humble and honest he appears to be. I have watched Rock of love and the shows where he is at home with Kristi and his girls. Truely, out of all the women he can date or has dated, kristi to me is the most beautiful and classy one of all. I hope for his sake that he is Married to Kristi now. Just got done watching him on celebrity house hunting where he planned to surprise them with a new house. Beautiful.

  4. So in reality are Kristi and Bret married? I hope they are
    they are so good together, so many contradictions out there about the pair
