Poison frontman Bret Michaels was rushed off stage during a concert in Manchester, NH, last night to receive emergency medical treatment.
Michaels, who has suffered from Type 1 diabetes since childhood, was 5 songs into a set with his solo band at the Palace Theater when he was forced to shut it down. Guitarist Pete Evick said, "In the nine years I've stood next to him, I've never seen a look like the one on his face as if I was a complete stranger. One of the crew returned instantly to notify me that Bret's blood sugar was extremely low. He returned to the stage only to announce that he could not continue. As you all know he is a health fanatic and fiercely monitors his blood sugar, he basically had to be dragged off the stage in his sickest of conditions. When I rushed to the bus he could barely speak, but begged me to apologize to the fans and seemed only concerned for them.”
Bret is a quality dude and here's to hoping he has a full and speedy recovery
