Bret Michaels -- Making An 'Amazing Recovery'

5/3/2010 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0423_tmz_brett_michaels_EX10Bret Michaels continued to make tremendous progress in his recovery this weekend -- and one source close to the singer tells us the whole thing is nothing short of "amazing."

We're told Bret was "very aware" and in a "good mood" this weekend during an evaluation with a specialist -- the singer was even described as "somewhat talkative."

It's a major improvement from the "critical" state Bret was in after suffering a massive hemorrhage near his brain stem back on April 23 -- a condition that can often be fatal if not treated quickly by experienced professionals.

Hate to play devil's advocate here, but this smells. Bret seems like an ok guy and all, but I've seen some of the extremes these stars will go to for a little press. I mean let's be real here. The Donald never misses an opportunity to plug his show, and what's next for Bret after this show? I've heard that there is no such thing as bad press but if this was a PR stunt, shame on them.

Give me a break!    

Give me a break! This guy can milk a story for publicity like no other. Half of it is BS. All the press releases are coming from him and his team. Nothing has been checked out. His own parents and sister haven't visited him so how close to death was he really.



I expected more from you TMZ than just passing on lame press releases and pr- bs.



How do you have a brain hemorrage and annouce you will be touring 3 weeks later? Read the press releases each one mentions his tour, his appearences in People Magazine, his offical webstie, twitter, facebook and myspace pages. He was in an undiclosed location for almost a week? Really? Funny we know what hospital every celeb ends up except this guy? That last press realease with all the doctor's quotes were bookened by promotion his People Magazine and another magaize's photo spread and his tour , the apprentice, and his pr sites.



Come on TMZ-you've gotten lazy. Do a little digging and stop rehashing lame press releases. You are missing the real story here.
