Poison's Bret Michaels (Almost) Loses His Head During Tony Awards
But we never expected frontman and 'Rock of Love' principle Bret Michaels would be attacked by an inanimate object. Actually, if you want to blame anyone or anything for the incident that nearly decapitated the singer, it would be gravity.
According to reports, Michaels sustained an undisclosed injury, directly following Poison's performance, as he was leaving the stage. That's when a set piece was lowered, sort of like a curtain, capping the electrifying performance. As it made its descent, the set piece came down right in front of Bret's face, slamming right into his head, and Michaels dropped like a ton of bricks.
According to a spokesperson for the Tony Awards, Michaels apparently "missed his mark," and while the extent of his injuries remains unclear, he did not, as some sites are reporting, break his nose.
