RoadDogNation.com Fan Feature: Bret Is Couple’s Good Luck Charm

I got the pleasure of seeing the Bret Michaels Band last night at Rams Head On Stage in Annapolis, MD. The show was awesome! I would say the best concert I have ever been too! It was well worth the three and a half hour drive to go to it. After the show I got the pleasure of meeting Bret and sharing my favorite Bret Michaels related story with him. Five years ago I met him after a concert in Virgina Beach, VA.

At the time my husband and I were trying to have a baby but things were taking longer then we had hoped. Bret must have been our good luck charm because we conceived that month! Ten months later we were finally parents. I owe it to my husband, but I do feel that there is a convection to that show! Lol. My friends even through me a Bret Michaels baby shower. 

 
My son is now four and hopefully in the near future will be attending Bret Michaels concerts with us. I want to thank Bret and the Bret Michaels Band for continuing to put on great shows and giving fans like me experiences and memories that last a lifetime!

RoadDogNation.com Story: Bernina & Shasta Meet Bret

I want to thank you for an awesome night on March 7th, 2014. You truly inspire me I have been through a lot the last 3 years. I lost my husband in May 2011, and my 85 year old mother got sick a month later and we were in and out of the hospital once a week for a month until we found out actually what was wrong. My daughter was in a real bad car accident in April 2012 I’m lucky to have her still with me she went 30 feet into a canyon. March 7th was the 7th year anniversary of our 1st fire and 3 months of our 2nd fire which we lost everything. All I have to do is think of you and have Something to Believe In.

Long time fan Brian talks about Bret’s genuine concern for his fans!

I have met Bret about 25 times dating back to 1996, I call him my friend, I went and saw him last week in Miami, My wife Barbara couldnt come, because of a medical emergency with my 19 year old daughter. So I brought my close friend Lisa.

The 1st thing Bret said to me “Where is your better half” I explained the situation to him, and his general concern for the well being of my daughter, well it was typical Bret Michaels like, he really cared, showed his love, and told me to make sure I send his best to my family.

This is why Bret Michaels, has been, and always will be, my friend. Thank you Bret, see you December 8, 2013, at Markham Park in Sunrise FL., we can close out 2013, with a bang, and a special thank you, to the best drummer out their, Chuck, you rock buddy, enjoyed hanging out with you after the show.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone at Bret Michaels Entertainment, YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!

Lynn continues to be touched by Bret’s compassion

I had my first encounter to meet Bret in the parking lot of the PNC Bank Arts Center in NJ in July of 2007.  I had recently lost my dad and when I spoke with Bret, I had told him that “Something to Believe In” really hit home and helped me deal with losing my dad.  He told me the history of the song (which, as a fan, I already knew). He gave me an autograph and as I walked away, he pulled me back, gave me a hug and said “I’m really sorry about your dad.  I walked away and all I kept thinking was “what a nice guy”.

From that point on, I became more aware of Bret and what he stands for.  From his work with various diabetes foundations, Petsmart charity, Operation Homefront and the Barrows hospital, he never ceases to amaze me!  I have never met such a wonderful person who does so much for so many people and asks nothing in return.  He is truly amazing and has an aura of positiveness in everything he does. Bret, his band, and everyone involved with him are some of the most wonderful people I have met.  I have also been fortunate enough to make a lot of lifelong friends  as a result of going to his shows.

Friends share good times with Bret!

Hi Bret my friend Elise and I LOVE you! You are the sweetest, kindest person. Elise was so sad she was unable to see you at the Emporium in October with me. This picture is from Westbury Sept 2012. We also met you at Pet Smart.  You are so generous with your fans. It was GREAT!!!

Each time we meet you it gets better and better!!! We work for an endocronologist and know how difficult it can be at times to keep your glucose in check. You must be doing something right, because you are so hot!

Many years a fan, the love and compassion Bret gives off and on stage is amazing.

I was driving to work and  radio station 97Rock here in Buffalo said to call in and I did. I had to sing nothing but a good time and I nailed it!! I won the chance to go on stage with BMB and sing with Bret. It was Awesome and everything I imagined.

Backstage with dj jixter Bret came out after the show and had the opportunity to him take a picture. 80’s fan forever will be.  Thanks for the memories.Can’t wait for the next one!!!!
