Poison frontman Bret Michaels is a huge fan of the ABC-TV hit comedy The Goldbergs, so he was excited to hear that the show was once again using the band’s music in an upcoming episode. The show will feature the band’s Number One hit “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” in a very special episode that airs on Wednesday, November 3.
“‘The Goldbergs’ is a true parallel of my life,” said Michaels. “It’s like growing up all over again in a Pennsylvania suburb. I can identify with so much of that show. When I watch it, I’m not just living those moments. I’m loving those moments and reflecting on my own life. I see my mom, my dad, my sisters, my friends. I lived all of those moments.”
In the all-new episode, Senior Night is upon William Penn Academy, and Beverly soon discovers she is missing out on the ceremonial adoration presented to mothers with athletic children. Much to Adam’s embarrassment, Beverly pushes for her moment to shine with a kiss and a rose and encourages Principal Ball to establish a Non-Athlete Senior Night. As Adam attempts to foil his mother’s plans, Erica finds herself lacking any interested friends to appoint “pre-wedding fun captain.” Reluctantly, she engages her eager “sister-in-law to be” Joanna, who inadvertently doesn’t meet expectations but ultimately proves herself worthy of being called sister.
“Having the show feature ‘Every Rose Has Its Thorn’ is awesome,” added Michaels. “The song has a bittersweet spirit which has over the years helped shape my unbroken fighting spirit. It is just as special meaning now as it did back when I wrote it. It is a true honor that it brings this special episode to a close and I can’t wait to share this experience with our fans.”
