Bret Michaels solo album to feature all star guests

Bret Michaels heads out for the Poison tour with Def Leppard this summer, and around that same time, it is expected he’ll release his new solo album, “Get Your Rock On.”

The project sees Michaels working with some legendary rockers.

“I put a lot of hard work into this,” Bret tells AZCentral. “And everyone that's on it, I'm not only friends with but fans of. I've got Ace Frehley from Kiss and Michael Anthony from Van Halen. I redid [Poison’s] "Nothin' But a Good Time" and played everything on it but the lead guitar and bass - Ace Frehley plays the solo and Michael Anthony plays bass. "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" has Joe Perry from Aerosmith and Hugh McDonald from Bon Jovi. And it's got Loretta Lynn singing it with me. Then, Jimmy Buffett, me and him did "Margaritaville" live.”

“It's all people I know,” continued Michaels. Vinnie Paul from Pantera. They're all friends of mine. The best one - are you ready for this? - I remade "Sweet Home Alabama" with the guys from Lynyrd Skynyrd playing and singing on it. Gary Rossington and Rickey Medlocke are on it. I wanted them to hear what I had done. I gave it a really cool feel. And they were like, ‘This is awesome.’”

“Get Your Rock On” follows Bret’s 2010 solo effort, “Custom Built.”
