Bret Michaels had the honor of being a part of the farewell to Regis Philbin on Live! With Regis and Kelly, which aired November 16th. Michaels sang a version of the Poison hit 'Every Rose has its Thorn' that he edited and improvised to make it a personal send-off to Regis, check it out.

Michaels has officially released the new version of the song to iTunes with the title 'Farewell to Regis'.

Both Bret and Regis have big plans for the future. Michaels is set to release a new album titled 'Get Your Rock On' in May of 2012, and Regis is already planning his return to television. Reports say there are several offers on the table, one of which is a prime time family oriented talent show...like we need another one of those.

Regis spent 30 years on the iconic Live! show, and has banked more than 16,000 hours in front of a television camera. You can be sure this isn't the end for Regis, just a new beginning. He recently told the 'New York Post' he isn't retiring, he's just "moving on."
