(AP Photo/Charles Sykes) (Newser) – Bret Michaels’ health challenges aren’t over yet. The Poison frontman, who recovered from a brain hemorrhage in April only to discover he’s had a hole in his heart since he was born, will undergo heart surgery to fix the hole in January. “Is he 100%? No, but he's in good spirits, he's having fun on the road, he loves his fans and has always said music heals him,” a rep tells Radar. Michaels is currently doing a solo tour.
