Bret Michaels' forthcoming sixth solo effort due for release on June 14, 'Get Your Rock On', will include a few friends.
"Loretta Lynn and Bret are redoing 'Every Rose Has It’s Thorn'. Among the other guests on the album are Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen and Jimmy Buffett. The title cut 'Get Your Rock On' has Phil Collen playing guitar and Sal Costa from My Darkest Days. Bret and Jimmy Buffet recorded a live version of 'Margaritaville'.
Bret had previously stated that his next solo record would be "harder" than his past efforts and listed his influences as Garth Brooks, John Mellencamp, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Aerosmith.
Michaels will be very busy in 2012, with Poison hitting the road this summer
with Def Leppard in addition to his two planned solo records.
