’80s glam rockers POISON performed their hit song “Nothing But A Good Time” earlier tonight (Sunday, June 7) at the 63rd annual Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
At the end of POISON’s performance, Bret Michaels failed to get back to the stage in time (as did the rest of POISON) and tried to jump up, only to have a descending set piece smack him on the head and knock him to the ground.
Tonys spokeswoman Christina Stejskal said the rocker “missed his mark.”
Stejskal did not immediately know the extent of Bret’s injury.
Watch video footage of the incident below.
POISON appeared with the cast of “Rock of Ages”, the jukebox musical about an aspiring rock group on the Sunset Strip. The dark-horse show, which originated at Hollywood’s King King club before moving to Las Vegas and then Broadway, received five nominations, including one for best musical.
The appearance was the first time that Michaels has appeared with POISON on the red carpet since the infamous fight between him and C.C. DeVille took place at MTV Music Awards.
MegaSlowFade” and “Ignite”, two new songs from Sad Day on Planet Earth, are now on the media page of lillianaxe.com and Myspace. Also, a free download of “Ignite” is available on the Blistering Records website.

Love hammers New Record HEAVY CROWN release PARTY IS JUNE 19 hob CHICAGO
Ok this isn’t really a new video, (it is from 2008) but it is new to me. This is a pretty cool tune from XYZ. Check out “Falling” below.
In 2008, Hinder recorded a cover of the Steppenwolf classic, “Born To Be Wild” for TNT and NASCAR. In 2009, Buckcherry takes off where Hinder left off, by covering Deep Purple’s “Highway Star”. I thought both bands did a decent job but only one of these is clearly a winner
