Poison frontman Bret Michaels has teamed up with a stellar cast for a new solo album that’s slated to arrive late July.
Bret Michaels and Friends: Get Your Rock On will include guest appearances by Aerosmith‘s Joe Perry, Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley, ex-Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony, Def Leppard‘s Phil Collen and Lynyrd Skynyrd‘s Rickey Medlocke and Peter Keys. The record also will feature a few major artists from outside the world of rock — Jimmy Buffett, country legend Loretta Lynn and rapper Lil Jon.
Talking to Billboard about the album, Michaels says, “I have either jammed with, partied with, or hung out with every friend that joined me on this album. There is such an awesome and diverse mix of talent on this record…It was truly one of the highlights of my career.”
Michaels recently debuted a video for the first single from the album, the title track. The tune features guitar work by Def Leppard’s Collen, whose band will be joining Poison and Lita Ford this summer for the Rock of Ages Tour 2012.
