Bret Michaels' Bentley is set to rock Barrett-Jackson's classic car auction

Barrett-Jackson's Scottsdale classic car auction will feature Bret Michaels' 2004 Bentley Continental

Vehicles owned by rock star Bret Michaels will star at Barrett-Jackson's Scottsdale classic car auction between January 15 and 22.

Michaels, who fronted glam rock outfit Poison during the '80s and '90s, is well-known as a car collector with apenchant for modern-day classics.

Poison's detractors may argue that theirsongs arethe only modern-day classics Michaels has to his name.

But you cannot argue with his fighting qualities. Michaels has recently recovered from a brain haemorrhage and stroke he suffered in 2010, and will be performing at the opening gala.

The pick of Michaels' cars going under the hammer is undoubtedly a2004 Bentley Continental GT. The automatic Moonbeam Silver beauty boasts a 6.0 litre twin turbo W12 engine.

The car has featured in Michaels' recent television shows, such as "Bret Michaels - Life as I Know It" and "Rock of Love".

It comes to the auction withno reserve.

The Bentley is joined by Michaels' 2004 Lincoln Navigator and a 2011 Ford Explorer.

No estimate has yet been provided for the vehicles.

We expect Michaels' cars to sell well based on past performance. His 1969 Chevy Camaro SS achieved $220,000 at a 2010 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale.

And, if it's rock star collectibles you're after, take a look at these superb handwritten, signed lyrics by Alice Cooper.

Thelyrics to the 1972 hit School's Out are in excellent condition, and are available for just 950.

The Barrett-Jackson auction will also feature the Cadillac Hearse that carried John F Kennedy's body following his 1963 murder in Dallas, Texas.

Paul Fraser Collectibles will bring you all the big news from the auction next month.
