The video for POISON singer Bret Michaels‘ new solo single, “Get Your Rock On”, can be seen below. The title track of Bret‘s new solo album features guest appearances by Phil Collen of DEF LEPPARD and Sal Coz Costa of MY DARKEST DAYS.
In a recent interview with Gimme Noise, Bret stated about his upcoming CD, “My album will be out this summer and I’m really proud of what we’ve done with it. It’s actually going to be called ‘Bret Michaels And Friends: Get Your Rock On’, and I’ll explain why: It’s really not just a Bret Michaels album. I had so many other talented artists come in and support that it’s really a ‘Bret Michaels And Friends’ album. There’s a staggering amount of talent on this album — from Ace Frehley of KISS to Michael Anthony of VAN HALEN to Loretta Lynn and Lil Jon. Sal Costa of MY DARKEST DAYS, Joe Perry of AEROSMITH and Phil Collen of DEF LEPPARD are on there as well. It’s been such a fun project for me and I’m excited to share it with the fans.”
Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine in February, Bret revealed that his new solo album will feature a remake of the POISON smash “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” as a duet between him and Loretta Lynn. He said, “For me, growing up in a family that my father loved country music and ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’, this is gonna be a really awesome time.”
He added, “The song ‘Get Your Rock On’ has Phil Collen playing guitar with me and it also has Sal Costa from MY DARKEST DAYS — [a] really, really good guitar player and good friend. Jimmy Buffet and I did a live version of ‘Margaritaville’ together.”
Michaels said the two duets, with Lynn and Buffett, will be “two bonus tracks.” And of the rest of the record he said, “It is just straight-up in-your-face rock and roll.”
