The band’s massive success includes selling more than 33 million records worldwide and numerous hit singles. Bret’s solo career has charted its own course with multiple solo albums. His album, Custom Built, topped the charts, reaching #1 on Billboard’s Hard Rock list.
Bret’s foray into reality TV brought the record-breaking Rock of Love with Bret Michaels franchise to VH1, one of the most successful shows in the network’s history. Following three seasons of the show, he teamed up with VH1 for the docuseries Life As I Know It. Bret has also starred in and won Donald Trump’s NBC hit, Celebrity Apprentice, raising well over $300,000 for diabetes research and making him the only celebrity to have a product they created be available to the general public and actually become an endorsement deal. Bret’s most recent television endeavor, Rock My RV with Bret Michaels, on Travel Channel, saw Bret and his team revamping and redesigning dilapidated RV’s in true rock star form and style.
Michaels, personally and through his Life Rocks Foundation, has helped raise tens of millions of dollars for charity and makes donations to not only diabetes awareness and research, but also to such causes as childhood cancer, wounded warriors, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, PetSmart Charities and more.
