Bret Michaels isn’t above stealing a Grammy. After crooning “Nothin’ But A Good Time,” the former Poison frontman — who has never attained Grammy gold — jokingly announced onstage at a Grammy Foundation event Thursday that he was on the prowl to nab a trophy.
The rocker was among more than a dozen performers at “One Night Only: A Celebration Of The Live Music Experience,” the 14th annual Grammy Foundation Music Preservation Project.
“This is as close as I’ve ever got to a Grammy,” said Michaels while standing next to a mammoth Grammy statue. “I’m the Susan Lucci of rock and roll.”
This year’s event paid tribute to the forms of live music, including concerts, festivals and venues ranging from The Troubadour in Los Angeles to the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tenn. Other performers included Mavis Staples, Ledisi, Dave Koz and Trombone Shorty, who teamed up at one point during the show for a jazzy rendition of “I’ll Take You There.”—Agencies
