25 years and still rockin!

Poison front man & reality TV star Bret Michaels has come a long way from those days of big hair and eye-liner.

Ok. He`s still wearing the eye liner, but he looks great doing it!

But, Bret Michaels isn`t your run-of-the-mill rock star.

He`s a survivor.

And after a year of suffering debilitating health problems, Michaels stepped out of a private plane in Houston en route to a solo performance in Katy.

After all, it was in the Lone Star State where Michaels penned one of the greatest power ballads of all-time.

You could say life is all roses now for the rocker.

He`s just days away from releasing his next solo album. Then, it`s on to a summer block-buster tour with fellow 80`s rockers Motley Crue.

They`ll take the stage at Toyota center Friday, June 10th.

Besides living the rock-and-roll lifestyle, Michaels makes it his mission raise millions for charity.

Whether it`s for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Saint Jude`s Children`s Hospital or visiting our troops overseas, Bret Michaels is there with a big grin on his face.

And that can give all of us something to believe in.
