A lot of older rockers have been coming out with books lately. Bret Michaels adds his experiences to the list with Roses & Thorns. More after the jump.

In a recent interview with Bret Michaels, he reports that his up and coming autobiography is set for release in early 2012. “This is a much-different-written autobiography," says Michaels. "I’m not just trying to just get shock value out of people. What it does is it goes through, I call it, the moments and comedy of errors that is my life . The trying times, the good times, the bad times, the sex, drugs and rock and roll; everything that I went through, what led up to it, what happened, what I did about it.”

He is also set to release his new rock album, Get Your Rocks On, later this year. Are you looking forward to both of these?

Also look forward to his band, Poison, touring with Motley Crue and the New York Dolls!
