Default Re: Bret Michaels in Critical Condition

There are reports out now that he's been conscious at times but has had blurred vision and slurry speech. Doctors are keeping him pretty sedated though. Basically he suffered a stroke, they just don't know what caused it yet.

I was a huge Poison fan when I was a kid, and besides that Bret's from Butler, Pa (about 20 minutes from where I grew up) and is as big of a Steelers fan as you will ever find...so that automatically makes him pretty cool lol. Like you said Tony, he does seem like a pretty decent person on the Apprentice too.

I don't follow his musical career anymore really, but it'd be a shame if he had some long lasting effects from this that hindered him from singing/playing. At this point though, he's pretty lucky just to be breathing.

Here's hoping Bret makes a complete recovery. I never appreciated Poison back in the day, but I'd go see them live now (nostalgic reasons). He's a likeable guy, and a fellow member of Steelers Nation.

It's not a good year for celebrities, is it (last year was worse!)

I was trying to find a photo of his guitar with the Steelers logo, but I can't seem to find one...


It doesn't look good----I'm guessing he ruptured a brain aneurysm, or possibly has something known as an AVM (arterio-venius malformation) that bled

Read, especially, the section "Etiology"

Couldn't find a photo of the guitar, but I did find this. Everyone has probably seen it, but it's still cool.

That is the first time I have seen it.
