Bret Michaels Hospitalized, In Critical Condition 

People magazine is reporting that Bret Michaels is very ill and was rushed to a hospital with a possible brain hemorrhage.

Here is a quote from the article:

Bret Michaels's health has taken a turn for the worse, PEOPLE has learned: After an excruciating headache late Thursday night, the star was rushed to an undisclosed hospital where doctors discovered he suffered a massive subarachnoid hemorrhage (bleeding at the base of his brain stem), according to a source close to the situation.

Right now, it seems Bret is in critical condition. Bret recently had an appendectomy and also has diabetes.

Not to be a downer, but this is exactly what killed my father.(Next 48 hours are crucial for him.) Hang in there fellow Pennsylvanian,people have beat this....

I've been stalking his blog for a few weeks (and admittedly trying to cheer him up after his appendectomy) and just read that update on there an hour ago...

And I don't actually know what else to say... For twenty years of my life, every day's been all about Poison...

He's a tough bugger, and he always seems to try to keep positive. I've got a lot of faith in the stubborn sonofabitch... But I guess we just have to light a candle and wait, and hope to pull in every favor God owes him...

Just saw this via Huff Post...

My prayers go out to him and his family.

Amateur speculation isn't very politically correct regarding something like this and I hate to be an armchair neurologist (we already know I'm an armchair __________), but I have to wonder if this is not just related to his recent health issues stemming from Michael's life long battle with Diabetes that led to his emergency appendectomy, but also related to that horrible head injury he sustained at the Tony Awards last year.

I've often heard of people suffering hemmoraging from head injuries they received months, or even years, before it suddenly occurs, particularly former boxers and former rugby and football players.

Whatever the case, please pull through, Brett. If there's one guy in Metal that means well, it's this guy, no matter what I've said about Poison (positive or negative).

I remember when I actually quite listening to Metal, let alone any Hard Rock or Rock and Roll, last summer for over a month after I had been on a total health and fitness kick for about 8 weeks.

But once I lost 40 lbs. and swimmin' a mile and runnin' 8 miles on the beach virtually every day, I, all of a sudden, got a yearning to put some Rock and Roll back on my iPod to run to again (too much electronica like Air and Thievery Corporation will do that to you).

And, of course, I wanted to listen to our favorite kind of Rock and Roll, Glam Metal.

And of all the songs I decided to play out of the 500 (out of some 4300 Glam Metal songs on my iTunes) or so I could squeeze onto my iPod, the first one I chose to be the first Rock and Roll song I was going to listen to in over a month was...

"Cry Tough" by Poison from their first album and total masterpiece, "Look What The Cat Dragged In".

Again, my prayers and thoughts are with him right now.

He can pull through, I just sense it!

"Cry Tough", Brett!
