When you look at the video, you have to do a double take, because the rocker looks as though he has completely recovered. His speech is back and so is his sense of humor.

Oprah asked him why he wore his signature bandana in the hospital room. He said “It’s like Superman without the cape.”

The front man for Poison says if he was going to go in the hospital he had one request:  “Leave the boots on, some form of bandana and a cape….but not in the hospital gown.”

He joked “If I’m going out, I want to go out rockin’.”
