Bret Michaels Is Feeling Thorny in New Book

Bret Michaels, man of letters? Believe it or not, it’s true.

People magazine reports that Michaels, frontman for hair-metal survivors Poison and host of VH1’s Rock of Love Tour Bus, has penned an autobiography.

The book, titled Roses & Thorns, will be published by Simon and Schuster on June 23.

The 352-page tome will trace Michaels life from his Harrisburg, Pennsylvania beginnings to his rise to rock ‘n’ roll stardom and the excesses it brought to his resurgence as reality-TV personality.

No word on whether there’ll be a chapter on how to effectively pull off the highly tricky bandanna-and-cowboy-hat look.
