Blake Hayes, the afternoon drive on-air personality on Houston’s Mix 96-5 radio station, conducted an interview with Bret Michaels prior to the POISON singer’s March 29 concert at the House Of Blues in Houston. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.
As previously reported, Bret told RollingStone.com that his new solo CD, “Get Your Rock On”, will include guest appearances by DEF LEPPARD guitarist Phil Collen, MY DARKEST DAYS axeman Sal Costa, Jimmy Buffett and country singer Loretta Lynn.
“Loretta Lynn and I are gonna redo [POISON‘s] ‘Every Rose Has Its Thorn’ together,” Bret told RollingStone.com. “And, 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.”
