Bret Michaels invited Scott Pasmore of “Good Morning Arizona” — which airs weekdays on KTVK 3TV — to the POISON singer’s luxurious Scottsdale home on Thursday’s edition of the program. You can now watch the segment below.

Michaels will host a fund-raising concert ob September 28 at Wild Horse Pass Hotel and Casino in Chandler to raise money for his charity, Life Rocks Foundation.

“It’s a fun concert,” Bret said. “It’s a celebration of life; it’s a party. A big Bret Michaels show, singing all the POISON hits and stuff and raising a lot of money.”

For Michaels, who has been struggling with diabetes his entire life, raising money to help others has become a personal mission.

“It’s about doing what you can when you can,” Bret said. “No one’s expecting anyone to give away everything they’ve got to another charity. It’s just if you’ve got something, whether it’s your time, whether it’s your heart, soul, time, money. If you can do it, do it.”

Over the last several years, Michaels and the Life Rocks Foundation have sent many diabetic kids to camps to help them learn how to manage their diabetes as well as show them that there are other kids just like them.

“The Vinnie Langdon Show” conducted an interview with the British metalcore act ASKING ALEXANDRIA at the Aftershock festival, which took place September 14-15 at Discovery Park in Sacramento, California. You can now watch the chat below.

ASKING ALEXANDRIA‘s third album, “From Death To Destiny”, sold 38,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 6 on The Billboard 200 chart. This achievement not only marks the group’s highest-charting debut ever, but also Sumerian Records‘ highest first-week sales to date.

“From Death To Destiny” debuted at No. 1 on the U.K. rock and metal chart. It’s another first for the band, and it’s particularly special for the band to garner so much support throughout their home country.

Commented ASKING ALEXANDRIA guitarist Ben Bruce: “It’s taken long enough! It wasn’t because we were being lazy, but because we wanted it to be perfect. ‘From Death To Destiny’ is our third album and we wanted to make sure we’d bring out the best possible record we could.”

He continued: “This is our biggest sounding record and alongside the classic ASKING ALEXANDRIA stuff — the breakdown sections, heavy sections, fast sections — we’ve thrown a lot of new influences in there. It’s a very diverse album and I think people who pigeonholed us are going to realize they were wrong when they hear it.”

Issued on August 6 via Sumerian Records, “From Death To Destiny” was recorded with renowned producer Joey Sturgis (THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, EMMURE).

Most of the new CD was tracked at Sturgis‘ studio in Indiana, while the vocals and strings and choir parts were laid down at NRG Recording Studios in North Hollywood, California.

“From Death To Destiny” track listing:

01. Don’t Pray For Me
02. Killing You
03. The Death Of Me
04. Run Free
