there aren't 2 things i like less than musicals and award shows, but the wife enjoys both, so I was pretty f'ed last night. but watching the brutal combination of musicals, award shows and Poison was pretty entertaining. And Brett Michaels getting whacked was fantastic.

BlindGreed- I thought the same thing! Previously I would have guessed thta he might use some sort of plaster to keep the hat/wig-dana on his head, but after watching that you may be right it could be sewn with a needle and thread.
Anyone else could have tried to save face by reaching under the slow moving prop to retrieve the hat Indiana Jones style, but with Brett that isn't even an option!

To be perfectly honest, I only checked this news bit out as I first read "Bret Michael gets laid by stage backdrop" and I was curious to what MU's policies on the matter are and since there's a video clip, I was wondering if its Pamela Anderson again

My brother and I were talking on my lunch break about how, in the end, the 90 minute set on Thursday will more than make up for the twenty minute set we missed last summer \m/. It is going to be incredible!
