Bret Michaels has said moving on with his album and new reality series despite a series of serious health problems is good for his "soul".
Michaels underwent an emergency appendectomy in April and was expected to make a full recovery. Days later, he was rushed to the hospital after complaining of a headache and was found to have had a brain haemorrhage. While recovering from the hemorrhage in May, he suffered a warning stroke and was diagnosed with a hole in the heart.
Speaking from his latest concert stop, Minneapolis, the Celebity Apprentice champion said: "I think this is good for my soul. Honestly, I'm taking every precaution. I'm not doing anything stupid.
"I'm going on stage and telling the fans that I'm going to give 100 per cent of everything I've got, but if it's only 75 or 80 percent, I think they will understand."
He went on: "I don't want my legacy to be that I had a brain haemorrhage. I want it to be that I rocked, I treated people with respect and I made a lot of good friends along the way.
"I think that came back to me when I got sick. I truly believe if you're a good person, and you spread love, then that love will come back to you."
