In 1984, Bret Michaels, along with bassist Bobby Dall, formed the band Paris, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The band, which later became known as Poison, moved to Los Angeles and started their career by touring clubs. The group was signed to Enigma Records in 1986, where they released their first album, Look What the Cat Dragged In. The record, spawning the Top Ten hits "I Want Action," "Talk Dirty to Me," and "I Won't Forget You," was a surprise success, selling two-million copies within a year following its release.
While Poison was already quite popular by the end of 1987, 1988's Open Up & Say… Ahhh! was their commercial breakthrough, due to the massive hits "Fallen Angel," "Nothin' But a Good Time," and -"Every Rose Has Its Thorn." The group went on to release five more albums, and toured the entire world, performing for sold out audiences everywhere.
Michaels recorded his first solo album in 1998, A Letter From Death Row, a soundtrack to the movie he directed, wrote and starred in. In 2003 Michaels released his second solo album, Songs of Life. In 2005, Michaels served as a judge in the reality television singing competition Nashville Star. The same year he released a country rock album called Freedom of Sound. In 2007, VH1 announced that Michaels would star as the bachelor in the reality television dating-competition series Rock of Love With Bret Michaels. Although Michaels did not find his "one true love" during the first season of Rock of Love, he was able to get a second chance in Rock of Love II With Bret Michaels, which is currently airing on VH1 on Sunday nights at 9 PM.
