Bret Michaels Weighs In on Kid Rock's Scuffle With Tommy Lee, Recalls Naked Fountain-Diving Incident

October 5, 2007 6:50 PM ET

Before we say goodbye to Bret Michaels' Rock of Love (the reunion episode airs this Sunday night), we figured we'd treat you to some more of our interview with the Poison leader. Check out this video, where Michaels relays the story of his most rock-star moment ever (it involves swan-diving naked into a fountain that wasn't quite deep enough to prevent injury), offers up some advice for up-and-coming bands, and ponders Kid Rock's beef with Tommy Lee: "All I know is I was the first rocker to get Pam."

Song Stories


Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
