Bret Michaels suffered a number of health scares throughout his career. He collapsed on the stage during an early Poison concert years back, and doctors were forced to reveal that he had Type 1 diabetes. In 2010, he was hospitalized after experiencing severe numbness on the left side of his body. After undergoing several tests, doctors found that he had a brain hemorrhage and a heart condition.
Michaels is best known for being the frontman of the rock band Poison. His band has sold over 50 million albums worldwide, and fifteen million records in the U.S. His first solo album, "A Letter from Death Row," was released in 1998. The album accompanied his film of the same name. His second album, "Freedom of Sound," was more country-influenced, and his third album, "True Grit," had a hit single. In addition to his solo career, Michaels also collaborated with Miley Cyrus on the single "Nothing to Lose," which became one of the group's biggest hits.
