Former Poison frontman Bret Michaels is making headlines once again for surviving a possibly deadly situation when his tour bus collided with several deer on his way to perform a show.
Following the incident on Friday, Hennemusic reports (via Celebuzz) that Michaels made a statement about the crash.
“Except for some bumps and bruises I am thankful there were no serious injuries,” Michaels said in the statement. “It is unfortunate for the deer, but thankfully due to modern RV technology and a steel firewall we are all okay.”
Michaels added that he intended to make Friday night’s show in Biloxi, Mississippi, where he was traveling from Abilene, Texas when the bus crashed.
The singer has been touring to promote his upcoming new solo album Jammin’ with Friends, which has already featured several singles and includes covers of Poison classics like “Every Rose has its Thorn” and “Nothin’ But a Good Time.”
Over the past few years, Michaels’ health issues have been featured heavily in the news after the singer suffered a brain hemorrhage and then underwent surgery for a hole in his heart.
Michaels has often expressed his love of a good RV, filming his reality dating series Rock of Love Bus in a tour bus. Currently, he hosts an RV-themed reality show, Rock My RV with Bret Michaels, in which a team of experts customize RVs in interesting ways for their owners.
Rock My RV with Bret Michaels airs Sundays on the Travel Channel. Bret Michaels’s new solo album, Jammin’ with Friends, hits stores on Tuesday, June 25.
