PR.com: If you owned an instrument you were in, no matter what! Eventually one of them couldn't afford gas money or their parents wouldn't drop them off, so they were out of the band. PR.com: Well I saw the promo clips on VH1's website and the girls were all over you. Bret Michaels: But there were adult beverages involved (laughs).

PR.com: Where they're all clamoring for the guy, and he's everyone's ideal type. " There's two things I think I got from my parents.
And eventually it gets down to where there's only four or five of you left, and that's your band. You could tell which were conservative, who were sexy, who were slutty, and who completely wanted nothing to do with me. Bret Michaels: Yeah and there's going to be some girls, that even if they would have liked me, they're just going to be turned off by the craziness going on and by the lifestyle. Some form of common sense, and an ability to be very driven.
The newly single rock star and father of two was game, on the condition that he could do the show on his own terms.
Extreme sports, rock music and plenty of debauchery are incorporated into Rock of Love.
Bret Michaels: At first there's going to be a physical connection to the ones that are much more aggressive. When we came out as Poison, we wanted to be shocking because when we moved to L. there were at least twenty thousand bands trying to make it.
But on the first night I went out of my way to try to sit and talk and hang with every one of them, individually. We wanted people to take notice of our music, but you couldn't just go out there in that day and age when everything was over the top.
Then as they got drunker, and more adult beverages got poured, it got out of control to the point where the producers were starting to flip out because all of a sudden you'd be on the couch and five girls would jump up on the couch and start dancing. I find what I love and then find things that surround it. PR.com: You want your entire public identity to be wrapped around music. You needed to be extreme for people to take notice of what you were. Whatever people thought was a "punk" band, meaning you did it your way, you didn't care. We were independent, and we kept all of our publishing. We did everything that was what punk rock was supposed to be.
If they were, then they were hiding it, because they're trying to fit into this category that they think you like. I don't care." And a couple of girls, and this is no lie I had one of the girls that I was really head over heals for, and you know when you start to sniff out that something's wrong? I can handle rejection." Not well, and I may cry later, but not on TV (laughs). When [women] get around me, the one good quality I have in most of my relationships, well two qualities, is that I'm a good listener and I love sex. If it's going to happen, let it just happen no matter if it's on a table, a chair, the floor, or the bed. Bret Michaels: They went to every city looking for girls who wanted to be on a rock dating show with Bret Michaels. What happened is, the premise is that I cannot have known or have partied with any of them.
Next thing you know, a couple of them immediately turn you off once they open their mouth. I'm looking for that in a woman as well; [someone] who can roll with the punches. Actually Pamela was the furthest thing from my mind. PR.com: You set her on this path towards rock musicians Bret Michaels: I set her on this path towards rock destruction (Laughs)! We used to laugh and she'd go, "Gosh, I used to go out with models and actors, and then I met you and it's been a path of destruction ever since." PR.com: (Laughs) I don't think she's recovered yet. But once she got a little taste of that rock, she just couldn't go back. You're looking for someone with a deep creative spirit and oftentimes that gets misunderstood as being bad. A good hearted bad boy, meaning a guy who has this deep spirit, he lives outside the box and it's a turn on because they're likeable and great to that woman. And this is my thing about being a "loveable bad boy" is that people know what I am and what I do.
Bret Michaels: Well that's the image that every rocker gets. She's hot, blonde, big breasts." Kid and Tommy and myself but I was first (laughs)! She got that bad boy thing and then she just couldn't go back. What they want is this likeable good hearted bad boy, meaning rocker bad boy. That guy's got a good spirit, he's creative and driven. Bret Michaels: Yeah, but we like the word "bad boy." PR.com: (Laughs) Yeah, we'll stick with bad boy. How many people get kicked to the curb on their own show (laughs)?! It's not like all of a sudden they woke up one day and I was working at a job and then I get a hit single and then I'm on the road.
The formula is simple one blonde, blue eyed rock star plus twenty-five beautiful and willing women all shacked up in the Hollywood Hills and the alcoholic beverages flow like water. First and foremost I love rock music in all its forms! I like good melody and that's where my connection to country is.
For my experience, Bret Michaels is a wonderful guy who displays a genuine down to earth nature. Poison is out all summer long until September 3rd in Atlanta at the Hi Fi Buys Amphitheatre. PR.com: Since you mentioned Nashville, in my research I noticed that although you're a rock musician there's a strong country music connection in there. When I grew up, my father was a huge country music fan. When I was growing up my mom was big into a lot of what I call hippie folk-esque music, [like] James Taylor. I take four or five [insulin] injections, and that will be part of my everyday life.
For the most part, Michaels has unrelentingly focused on his music, continuing to record and tour with Poison band mates C. Deville, Rikki Rocket and Bobby Dall, as well as write and record solo music.
