Another health scare for Bret Michaels, this time it was at a show in New Hampshire last night. Guitarist Pete Evick took to Facebook and said that after three songs, Michaels rushed from the stage. Initially a crew member said that the Poison front man had extremely low blood sugar … Michaels has Type 1 diabetes. Anyways … Michaels eventually returned to the stage but not to perform. He instead informed the audience that he was un able to continue. The singer then took to Twitter and Facebook to tank the paramedics who fixed him up. A few years ago Michaels found a blood clot in his brain an had to make a rush trip to the hospital. He also took a nasty hit from a stage piece at an awards show, so he’s had his fair share of medical emergencies.
