Bret Michaels is ready to hit the road again. He will kick off his summer tour in Biloxi, Missipppi. After spending six weeks in the hospital, he’s itching to play music again and reconnect with fans. Shouldn’t the rock star really be at home with his girlfriend Kristi Gibson and his two daughters? Also, will he replace Simon Cowell as the new American Idol judge?
In a new interview. Michaels said his doctor wanted him to take at least a month off from his tour. He says, “We talked a lot about this because I always knew I wanted to do “American Idol” and “Celebrity Apprentice.”
Michaels continued, “He wanted me to wait a month, but I’m ready to get out there on the road, feeling alive and rocking again. I’ve been in the hospital a month and a half, and I’m ready to make some music again.”
The singer does say he is taking precautions. “I’m running at about 75 percent right now, but in my soul I feel great. I’m taking every precaution I can because I love my family and love my daughters, and I honestly mean this, I love life and want to be around. I love life, but I can’t just sit still. Fans will know I’m an insane animal on stage and I like to give 100 percent on the stage but they’ll understand I will give 100 percent of my 75 percent.”
Michaels a Pisces, should really rethink going back on tour. So much can happen on stage and the road has to take a toll on his body.
The big news is Bret Michaels has expressed an interest in taking over Simon Cowell’s spot on American Idol. In fact, sources say he’s in multi million dollar negotiations with American Idol producers right now. He would actually make a pretty good judge and would allow the rocker to stay home and be closer to his family. What does Simon Cowell think? He thinks Bret Michaels would be a great judge. No word on who they will pick. Stay tuned!
