BRET MICHAELS Rushed Off Stage After Diabetes Attack

While playing a show in Manchester, N.H. last night, rocker Bret Michaels rushed off the stage to be evaluated by paramedics, according to USA Today. The team determined that Michaels' blood sugar was extremely low.

Michaels has suffered from Type 1 diabetes since his childhood. He has also undergone numerous major surgeries, including an emergency appendectomy, heart surgery and brain hemorraging.

Guitarist Pete Evick responded to the incident by posting the following on Facebook:

"This is a message I never imagined I'd have to post. Tonight in Manchester, NH 3 songs into the set Bret had me sing a song as he rushed off stage. In the 9 years I've stood next to him, I've never seen a look like the one on his face as if I was a complete stranger. One of the crew returned instantly to notify me that Bret's blood sugar was extremely low."

According to Evick, Michaels returned to the stage only to announce that he could not resume the concert. Evick went on to say, "As you all know he is a health fanatic and fiercely monitors his blood sugar, he basically had to be dragged off the stage in his sickest of conditions. When I rushed to the bus he could barely speak, but begged me to apologize to the fans and seemed only concerned for them."

As a lifelong sufferer of diabetes, Michaels donated 640,000 dollars for the American Diabetes Association after being crowned the winner of the third season Celebrity Apprentice.
