David Lee Roth vs. Bret Michaels: Who Got Walloped Best Onstage? (Video)

1 April 2015 6:49 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth is recovering after a decidedly un-rockstar-like moment during his band’s appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” On Monday night, he was forced to exit the stage mid-song, after injuring his own nose with his microphone stand. Aside from whatever pain the boo-boo left him with, Roth shouldn’t feel too bad. Fans of aging glam-metal singers will recall that back in 2009, Poison belter Bret Michaels ate it in spectacular fashion at the end of his performance at the Tony Awards, taken down by a descending piece of scenery. So which music icon had the more impressive. »

The band's hits-heavy setlist featured anthems like "Panama, »
