Poison’s Bret Michaels Has Skin Cancer


Poison frontman Bret Michaels has released the following statement via his website:

“After a very recent kickoff to the new year, physical & MRI it has been brought to my attention that I have torn my right shoulder rotator cuff which would answer the question why it looks like a lump or bone was sticking out of my right shoulder. A little more complex I will also have to undergo a procedure to remove skin cancer that was detected after a recent biopsy. I’m in the hands of incredible specialists who are both positive for great outcomes. It may slow me down a bit at the beginning of the year, but if God willing I promise this year will be awesome. Just a few less solo shows & special events until I get this all squared up. As always continuing great diabetic maintenance to keep on rocking in 2020! – Bret Michaels”

Everyone here at MetalSucks is glad that Bret is getting the care he needs. We wish him a speedy recovery.
