A Night to Remember
By Lucia Maria - Updated 12.14.11

Have you ever hit the lottery? Well me, I've never, but it sure felt like I had the night that I got a phone call from Laurie Vincent of Strategic Promotions. She offered me a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet Brett Michaels.

In case you have been living in a cave for the past 25 years, Brett Michaels is a legend! Words can't even express his awesomeness. He was born on this earth to be one of the greatest rockstars ever. He is the frontman and lead vocalist for the glam metal band, Poison. They've topped the charts with hits like, "Look What the Cat Dragged Inn", "Unskinny Bop", "Something to Believe In", "Talk Dirty to me", and "Nothing But A Good Time", bringing them to super stardom in the 90s. With success and fame came drug addiction, relationship problems, and tensions within the band, leading to the departure of guitarist C.C Deville and Tracy Lewis, Michaels' girlfriend and inspiration for one of the greatest songs ever written, "Every Rose has it's Thorn."

He is also famous for his hit VH1 reality show, "Rock of Love," along with winning NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice Season 3." Recently, he was in the news for a very different reason; in April of 2010, he was rushed to the hospital after complaining of a severe headache. Doctors determined that he had had a massive subarachnoid hemorrhage, but by the grace of God, he was able to make a full recovery.

On November 18th, Brett Michaels was set to perform a solo concert at the Crocodile Rock in Allentown, Pa and I couldn't believe that I was going to get to meet him after the show. I was having major anxiety; I was hyperventilating with excitement. Something like this never happens to me. From the moment that I found out I was going to meet him until I got there, I could not stop thinking about what I was going to say to him. How was I going to react? Decisions, decisions...

Once I arrived at the Crocodile Rock, I immediately got as close to the stage as I possibly could. I wasn't going to take a chance getting stuck behind some tall dude and be unable to see Brett. First to take the stage was Troy Dean, an up-and-coming guitarist from Allentown, Pennsylvania. His songs are amazing; they have a little bit of a Jon Mayer feel to them. They are so well written and straight from the heart that some of them brought tears to my eyes. After his set was done, I just knew that this was gonna be a night to remember.

Next up was Revelation: an extremely new and extremely "young" band. These kids couldn't have been older than 18 years old, but man could they rock out! The crowd was loving them; everybody was dancing and having a good time. It must have felt awesome to be opening up for Brett Michaels. Once they finished their set, all the lights went out and that's when the magic happened. Brett hit the stage, and it was like all hell broke lose in Allentown. He started out with "Driven," and within seconds, a mosh pit was formed. People were pushing and singing, and of course dancing. It was amazing!

In all the years that Brett has been performing and all the health complications that he has had, you would think that he would start slowing down. No way, not Brett Michaels! He still rocked out like he did in the 80s. Then, the lights went out and immediately after hearing the first note, I knew it was happening. I couldn't help it, I just starting screaming out "Every rose has its thorn, just like every night has its dawn...." I barely had a voice after that song. Once he finished up his set, I got that super nervous, warm feeling in my chest. It was time, I was going to meet BRETT MICHAELS!

I was told that I was only going to get to meet him for a brief moment, and that I couldn't take any pictures, because I wasn't part of the "Official" meet and greet. I didn't care; a few seconds was all that I needed. However, I do wish that I had one of those super tiny spy cameras, something that I could hide in my hat. I followed his people until we got to his bus. They told me to wait in line until it was my turn. His bus was suprisingly plain; didn't feel like it did him justice. There wasn't even a huge Brett Michaels picture on the side. Most of the other fans waiting to meet him were dressed in full 80s gear, half cut shirts, short skirts, poofed out hair, and high heels. It felt like I fell in a hot tub time machine and was brought back to the 80s. Those were some good times!

Finally, his tour manager stuck his head out of the bus and said "Your up next, Lucia." He led me up into the bus and all I can say is, it was amazing! It was literally a house on wheels with TVs, hardwood floors, and couches everywhere. Sitting on the couch was the man himself, Brett Michaels! I shook his hand and he said "Hello, Lucia, nice to finally meet you." I was speechless. I didn't know what to say except, "Hello, Mr. Michaels." To which he responded, "Call me Brett." Damn, that's right! Me and Brett are on a first name basis now! He talked about how much he enjoyed being out on the road again, and that the fan response after all these years was still unbelieveable. He said "The reason why I do all of this is, it's for the fans, their response and reaction when I'm performing on stage, it keeps me alive. If it wasn't for the fans, I wouldn't know what I'd be doing now." Then, he talked about being active in the American Diabetes Association and I told him about Sound for Scoliosis and gave him a T-shirt.

Just when we were starting to become best friends, his tour manager came back on the bus and said that my time was up. I was disappointed that it was so short, but it was still one of the best things to ever happen to me. I felt honored that I had a chance to talk with him and tell him about Sounds for Scoliosis; he really seemed to dig the idea! As I went to the end of the bus to get out and leave, all I could manage to say was "Thank you so much for giving me this amazing opportunity!" He shook my hand and said, "The pleasure was mine."
