Poison frontman Bret Michaels to have heart surgery

Bret Michaels has been struck by a number of health issues of late, enough to last a life time, one would think. He is currently on his Rose and Thorns tour, impressing his fans with his comeback following the stroke he suffered earlier this year. However, it’s not all smooth sailing for the musician just yet.

As reported by Daily Mail, the frontman is set to go under the knife to repair a hole in his heart that doctors discovered when he was hospitalized earlier this year. He will have surgery in January for the condition that unbeknownst to him he has had since he was born.

In April the rocker suffered a near fatal haemorrage and his remarkable discovery even stunned doctors.

A rep for the rock star told RadarOnline.com, “Is he 100 percent? No, but he’s in good spirits, he’s having fun on the road, he loves his fans and has always said music heals him.

“He said that there are times when, of course, he worries but he has great people around him and he’s very cautious.”

Michael is still on the road touring, and following  his surgery and a recovery period the action will continue when he goes on tour to promote his autobiography ‘Roses and Thorns: The reality of my Rock and Roll Fantasy’. There’s no stopping this man.
