Poison frontman BRET MICHAELS has lavished praise on Miley Cyrus following their recent collaboration, insisting the teenager is one of the few young stars who can "actually play and sing."
The pair teamed up to record a revamp of the rock band's 1980s anthem Every Rose Has Its Thorn, and Cyrus recently admitted she's very proud of the "rad" duet.
And Michaels loved working with the 17-year-old Hannah Montana star - because she is a true talent.
He tells MTV news, "It was really, really simple. I think her first concert was Poison. She saw us at Nashville at the arena. It was her introduction into rock and roll.
"She's one of the few musicians - and I want to use that word cause she can actually play and sing - she's one of the few people who can pull it off and give it her own flair and make it sound good. (She) nailed the song. She really knew what she was doing. She got in there and picked the guitar up. It was one of those nights that just worked. It was fun."
