POISON’s BRET MICHAELS Back In Hospital After “WARNING STROKE” – Has Hole In His Heart

May 20, 2010

BRET MICHAELS of POISON

Bret Michaels was readmitted to the hospital this week after suffering numbness on the left side of his body, predominately his face and hands which doctors described as a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) or warning stroke. While MRI and CT scan tests were being conducted, Michaels also received a Doppler Ultrasound of his legs and lower abdomen looking for blood clots and most importantly an Ultrasound Bubble Test of his heart was conducted which proved positive for a Patent Forum Ovale (PFO), a hole in the heart. Dr. Zabramski (Bret�s neurosurgeon), Dr. Becker (who ordered the test), Dr. Cook (who conducted the test) and Dr. Frey (Director, Outpatient Stroke Program) all confirmed the results.

Dr. Zabramski states “There is no doubt that the positive Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) is devastating news to Bret and his family. The good news is that it is operable and treatable and we think we may have diagnosed the problem that caused the Transient Ischemic Attach (TIA) or warning stroke; however we feel it is highly unlikely this is connected to the brain hemorrhage he suffered just a few weeks earlier. Once again it is great that he quickly reacted to the severe numbness and got to the hospital immediately.”

Source: TMZ.com, GunsNRoses.com

Axl Rose annihilated a paparazzi at LAX the other night, connecting with a ferocious blow to the snapper’s head — and now we’ve got the video of the entire brutal beat down.

Before the brawl, Axl warns the paparazzi about a photog who was allegedly getting close to a woman in his entourage saying, “touch her again, I’ll break his f**king [THRALL WORLD edit: fucking] neck.”

Seconds later, the woman can be seen scuffling with a photog — and that’s when Axl charges in and swings for the photog’s head … knocking the guy right on his ass.

Adam Pascal, the Tony Award-nominated actor-singer known for his dual passions of musical theatre and rock music, is pursuing a dream he’s harbored since his teen years: to create a stage musical version of “Operation: Mindcrime,” the 1988 concept album by metal group Queensrÿche.

The project is in the early stages, with no director, librettist, producer or music director attached, but Pascal said that Queensrÿche — including frontman and co-songwriter Geoff Tate and manager Susan Tate — has given him the go-ahead, and that the new musical will include new songs and connective material by the band.
