The slugs of tabloids have always favored [lastfm link_type=”similar_artist_radio”]Bret Michaels[/lastfm], placing him atop the wash-ups and has-beens of the 80’s glam-rock movement. As everyone’s favorite [lastfm link_type=”similar_artist_radio”]Poison [/lastfm]singer/ reality show star/ talent judge, it’s a treat to see him make headlines again and again. Through everything, Michaels has always remained a good sport, donating his time and money to many different charities. A good man deserving of more credit than he gets on a daily basis.

Today we learned that he’s heading to the hospital to undergo heart surgery. Full details below.

Last April, Bret Michaels suffered a brain hemorrhage. Upon arriving to the hospital, doctors discovered a hole in his heart that had been there since his birth.

This week, the doctors are returning to repair Micahel’s organ by performing cardiac catheterization. A complicated procedure which requires guiding a closure device to repair his heart.

A frightening surgery, sure, but Michaels is ready for it.

“Barring any complications, I should be out within three to four days. Then, I will be down [resting] for three weeks. I don’t know if I can sit around for that long, but I’ll try my best.”

We’re wishing you the best, Mr. Michaels. A very safe and speedy recovery to you.
