Poison’s Bret Michaels To Undergo Procedures For Torn Rotator Cuff & Skin Cancer

Poison’s Bret Michaels has revealed that he will be undergoing two medical procedures. One will be performed to fix a torn rotator cuff, while the other will be performed to remove a patch of skin cancer.

The frontman commented:

“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!”

With this news, Tuk Smith & The Restless Hearts have also shared a new video for their debut single “What Kinda Love.” Smith said the following about that:

“I think when people first hear the song, they might not get its meaning right away. I wanted to create a narrative in the video that helped complement the lyrics. Having full creative vision as an artist is as rewarding as it is daunting. If something doesn’t pan out right, there is no one to blame but yourself, but it’s the best feeling when your vision becomes reality. I had so many close friends and family act, be extras, and work on videos with me. I’m so lucky to have such a pool of talent and characters to pull from.”
