POISON singer Bret Michaels was a guest on this past Wednesday’s (February 8) edition of the CBS program “The Talk”, which is co-hosted by Ozzy Osbourne‘s wife/manager Sharon. A clip from the show, in which Michaels shares some hard-earned lessons about taking control of your life, can be seen below. The full episode is available at this location.

Michaels told last week that his upcoming solo album, “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 “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.”
