If you missed Bret Michaels‘ show in Amarillo, I have to admit that you missed out. This was, by far, one of the greatest concerts that I have seen in over 30+ years.There was no ‘filler’ during this 90 minute rock ‘n’ roll party. Bret hit the stage like a champ, belting out a Poison hit, followed by Lynryd Skynyrd’s, “Sweet Home Alabama” and there was no looking back. The concert was like being shot off a launching pad and breaking the sound barrier from start-to-finish.

Usually, during a show, I might get up a couple times during the end or encore, but I was standing, clapping, swaying and singing all the way through. By the third song, I was sweating like I had run the Boston Marathon.

Bret went through his Poison hits, including; ‘Unskinny Bop,’ ‘Every Rose Has It’s Thorn’ and ‘Something To Believe In.’ He added in the ‘Rock Of Love’ theme song and some tracks of his latest cd, “Custom Built” and then took us all the way home with classic covers of “Your Mama Don’t Dance” and Sublime’s, “What I Got.”

When I interviewed Bret a couple days before the show he had mentioned that, “I want people to walk away from the show going, Wow! That’s what a rock & roll concert should be like.” And he was ABSOLUTELY correct, because that’s what I was saying as my ears continued to ring for the next 24 hours.

I actually was lucky to meet up with Bret after the show to tell him what a great party he put on and he complimented me on “What a great interview it was.” He was very down-to-earth and spent time signing autographs and taking pictures with his fans.

To sum it up, it was a great time and for a great cause, as proceeds for the show were going to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation-in honor of Ralph York.
