According to Donna Freydkin of USA Today, POISON frontman Bret Michaels is promising to rock the crowd at this week's Rocklahoma music festival, which features such decibel-busting acts as SEBASTIAN BACH, DOKKEN, L.A. GUNS, LYNCH MOB and TESLA.

"People are ready. They want to hear rock again; they want to go out and party and have fun," Michaels says. "You want to go to a summer concert and not watch a band staring at its shoes for six hours and complaining. I think people want to hear rock. Everything is cyclical."

"My life is part humor, part roses, part thorns. I'll come off the stage at Texas Stadium (and) I'm a rock god," he says. "And then, an hour and a half later, I'm throwing a football and waiting for a cheeseburger from a truck stop at Carl's Corner, alongside a freeway. That is the balance in life."
