    Default Bret Michaels Dodges Bullet

    Bret Michaels Dodges Bullet

    Somebody's gunning for Bret Michaels.

    The Poison frontman literally dodged a bullet, or at least a pellet, escaping injury after someone fire a single shot into his tour bus Monday night.

    The "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" singer was inside his luxury coach when the incident took place outside the Rumble Seat Bar and Grille in Chicopee, Massachusetts, where he was due to perform.

    In a statement, Michaels' manager says the rocker hit by the projectile, but he "was struck in the face by flying broken glass."

    The release goes on to say that this "this was not a random drive-by shooting due to the shots being fired directly into the living quarters at the rear of the bus." It also claims that "throughout his career, Michaels has been the target of numerous death threats investigated by the FBI."

    Michaels himself says in the statement that he will soldier on.

    ""I want to thank all of my fans in the Chicopee area for staying out last night, and I will be back."

    But local authorities are downplaying the seriousness of the incident. "It appears to be a simple case of vandalism," says Sergeant Christopher Lareau of the Chicopee Police Department.

    Speaking by phone Tuesday, Lareau confirmed that the left rear window of the bus had been shot out, but that he believed the weapon involved was a "pellet gun." He added that there were currently no suspects.

    In his statement, Michaels asks that any tips be sent to his Website, bretmichaels.com, or the police.

    "Hopefully, with the help of many people, we will catch the person who did this and they will be brought to justice," the rocker says.

    The tour bus tagging caps a rough year for members of one of the biggest hair metal bands ever. Last month, a Los Angeles judge sentenced Poison guitarist C.C. DeVille to 80 days in jail after he pleaded no contest to driving under the influence and causing injury.

    As for Michaels, he is due in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, for a show Tuesday followed by a Thursday concert in Cincinnati.

    BRETT MICHAELS TOUR BUS SHOT AT BEFORE SHOW:
    Press Release / (Los Angeles, Calif.) - Poison lead singer Bret Michaels
    will remain on tour despite being the target of a drive-by shooting last
    night, November 21, in Chicopee, Massachusetts.
    The multi-platinum artist was in town to perform a rare, invitation-only
    acoustic show, when, prior to the show, shots were fired from a white Ford
    F-150 while Michaels was still on the tour bus, according to witnesses.
    Michaels was struck in the face by flying broken glass, but escaped serious
    injury.
    Michaels issued the following statement immediately following the incident.
    "It is going to take more then a cowardice act like this to make me stop
    performing or stop my tour. I plan on staying out and finishing the shows as
    scheduled. I want to thank all of my fans in the Chicopee area for staying
    out last night, and I will be back. Hopefully, with the help of many people,
    we will catch the person who did this and they will be brought to justice."
    Local police do not feel this was a random drive-by shooting due to the
    shots being fired directly into the living quarters at the rear of the tour
    bus. Shell casings from the weapon have not been recovered from the scene at
    this point. Further information will be released as it becomes available.
    Chicopee police officers Phil Russ and David Gagnon immediately secured the
    scene, closed down the street and began interviewing witnesses, including
    ABC News cameraman John Ticard, who had just arrived to cover the event. Mr.
    Ticard stated, "I heard a loud bang and then glass shattering. I thought it
    was a car accident at first, but as I approached the bus I realized that it
    wasn't an accident, someone had shot at Mr. Michaels' bus, and it was the
    glass of the window shattering."
    A reward has been announced for any information leading to the arrest of the
    person or persons involved in the abovementioned incident. Information can
    be given directly to the Chicopee Police Department at 413-592-6341, or tips
    can be submitted via Michaels' website, www.bretmichaels.com.
    According to Michaels' management office, HK Management in Los Angeles, this
    is not the first police or federal investigation that Michaels has been at
    the center of. Throughout his career, Michaels has been the target of
    numerous death threats investigated by the FBI.
    A person identifying himself as Mark Kram fired 9 mm bullets through photos
    of Michaels and mailed them, along with threatening notes to several arenas
    in which Michaels was scheduled to perform. Investigators believe the
    suspect in that particular case lives in the Northeastern United States.
    (Oh, I don't know, if I'm Bret Michaels, I'd want the FBI to find this guy. -Sasquatch)
    The police were also called to investigate when a tire came off of the truck
    that Michaels was driving after attending a concert in California. In that
    case, someone had loosened the lug nuts on the vehicle, causing Michaels to
    wreck in the middle of a busy freeway following the event.

    Why do the bad ones have to live so long??
    "Suck a fat one, faggot."
    -MikeL, showing off that sharp wit of his.

    "You may recognize some of these chemicals. Let's start with cyanide...The one the Aum Shinrikyo cult attempted to use to commit mass murder in a Tokyo subway in May 1995...The same cyanide produced routinely--1.4 million tons per year--for use in the production of plastics, adhesives, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and so on. It seems that those who put small amounts of cyanide in subways are terrorists. But those who produce it in mass quantities and contaminate broad reaches of soil, water, and air, killing countless living beings, are not terrorists, but rather capitalists, and are counted among the finest and most powerful people on the planet."

    -Derrick Jensen, "What We Leave Behind"

    "You know what's weird to me is Christians who are against the death penalty. After all, if it weren't for the death penalty, we wouldn't celebrate Easter!"

    -the late, great, Bill Hicks
