Bret Michaels Enlists Lil Jon, Jimmy Buffet for Solo Album
Slew of Stars Help Poison Frontman on 'Bret Michaels and Friends: Get Your Rock On'
B ret Michaels plans to release a new solo album this summer, which includes songs he recorded with a little help from his A-list rocker friends.
The album, due sometime in late July, is titled "Bret Michaels and Friends: Get Your Rock On" and features collaborations with Joe Perry (Aerosmith), Michael Anthony (ex-Van Halen), Ace Frehley (ex-KISS), Loretta Lynn, Jimmy Buffet, Bobby Capps (.38 Special), Lil Jon and Rickey Medlocke and Peter Keys (both, Lynyrd Skynyrd) and more.
"I have either jammed with, partied with, or hung out with every friend that joined me on this album. There is such an awesome and diverse mix of talent on this record -- from rock to country to rap to blues to pop to hip hop to alt rock to Jimmy Buffett. It was truly one of the highlights of my career," Michaels tells Billboard of the forthcoming disc.
The notorious Poison frontman/VH1 reality star recently released a video for his latest single, "Get Your Rock On," which includes footage of him riling up crowds, tooling around on a motorcycle, and entertaining females backstage on his current solo tour. The track features Def Leppard's Phil Collen and Sal Costa of My Darkest Days.
Michaels is currently on the road on his Get Your Rock On tour and will be continuing with solo gigs in between dates on the upcoming Poison/Def Leppard/Lita Ford Rock of Ages tour kicking off on June 20th in Salt Lake City.
