Excerpt from The Rockstar Ramblings:
Okay, so he never really left, that was just a dream. Poison front man Bret Michaels (Poison) has released a brand new video for his new single “Get Your Rock On”, featuring Phil Collen (Def Leppard) and Sal Coz (My Darkest Days). The video was filmed during Michaels' 2011/2012 solo tour. "Get Your Rock On" is the title track from Bret's upcoming solo album of the same name. The single is available on iTunes along with a cover of Poison’s “Nothing But A Good Time”, featuring former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley and Chickenfoot bassist Michael Anthony. So, is it just me or is Bret Michaels trying to become the “Kevin Bacon Six Degrees” of eighties rockers?
The video starts and I’m confused, initially thinking that I’m watching a preview for the next ‘Rock of Love’ series. I’m relieved to find this is not the case. Bret’s voice is different, and doesn’t sound like a lot like his past solo music, but the look is the same. Bandana-Cowboy Hat-Bandana and REPEAT…I will admit that I do not hate this song. Then comes the chorus…okay, I no longer care for this song. The close up in-your-face Michaels telling me I need to “Gotta Get Your Rock On” turns even stranger with the repeated “Nasty Baby” lyrics that follow.
