Bret Michaels‘ frantic work pace is not in spite of his health issues from earlier this year — it’s because of them. The rocker, who resumed touring about a month after the massive subarachnoid hemorrhage he suffered in April, recently told The News Journal about his re-energized work ethic:
“It’s in my blood to live life to your fullest. I work hard and play hard. So when all this happened with the brain hemorrhage and everything, I think most people thought I’d slow down. To me, it was eye opening that life can be over even sooner than I imagined, and to that my heart tells me to do all the things I can before I can’t. I’m out touring pretty hard and filming TV shows, and I’m also flying home to see my family more than ever. So, yes, I am spending more time with my family than ever but I’m also making sure I leave no stone unturned and making every minute count.”
He’s also making others’ every minutes count, too — he recently offered to pay a diabetic 9-year-old’s tuition to Joslin Diabetes Camp next year. The 9-year-old, Ethan Guglielmo, accepted. [DelawareOnline/SeacoastOnline.com]
