In a post on Twitter.com, he writes, "Our thoughts are with our friend Pete Evick whose father, also a war veteran & diabetic, passed away this morning."

The Poison frontman, who walked away with just a few scrapes, still plans to push forward with his concert in Biloxi on Friday night.
He tells Celebuzz.com, "I am thankful there were no serious injuries. It is unfortunate for the deer, but thankfully due to modern RV technology and a steel firewall we are all OK. I have every intention to make tonight's show in Biloxi and the tour will continue."

"(It's) more than one, less than 100,000. I can't give a quantity, but I'll say 99.9 per cent were quality. I may have had one or two floppers in there, one or two rough nights, but the rest were top-notch." Rocker Bret Michaels on his sexual conquests.
"I spent two years devising the best-smelling cologne ever - Thorns & Roses. We launch this fall, and it smells pretty damn good... It's what I wear." Rocker Bret Michaels is a big fan of his new signature scent.
